Jaguars to coach Senior Bowl


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars' coaching staff is working the Senior Bowl again.

The Jaguars, a year after working the 2014 Reese's Senior Bowl, will coach the 2015 game next month in Mobile, Alabama, Senior Bowl officials announced on Tuesday afternoon.

The Jaguars will coach the South team; the Tennessee Titans and head coach Ken Whisenhunt will coach the North team.

Tennessee finished the 2014 season 2-14 and holds the No. 2 overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft; the Jaguars finished 3-13 and hold the No. 3 overall selection.

The Jaguars selected four players from the 2014 Senior Bowl in last year's draft: third-round guard Brandon Linder, fourth-round cornerback Aaron Colvin, fifth-round linebacker Telvin Smith and sixth-round defensive end Chris Smith.

The Jaguars coached the South team to a 20-10 victory in last year's game, and were offered the chance to coach this year's game when Tampa Bay (2-14) declined.

"We are looking forward to coaching the Senior Bowl in 2015," Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said in a statement. "Our staff really enjoyed the time we had last year in Mobile. It's a great opportunity to get to know the players on a personal level and watch them compete on and off the field for an entire week.

"It proved to be a valuable asset in our pre-draft process last year. The Senior Bowl staff does a great job of taking care of the players and coaches and making it a very enjoyable week."

The Jaguars' staff also coached the Senior Bowl in 2009.

The 66th Senior Bowl is scheduled for January 24, 2015 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile. Kickoff is 3 p.m. central time.

The NFL Network will televise the practices during the week and the game.
