Ray Rice to coach running backs in NFLPA Collegiate Bowl
Rice will serve under National Team coach Mike Martz and will be in charge of coaching the running backs along with former Kansas City Chiefs running back Priest Holmes. Former Seahawks and Packers coach Mike Holmgren will coach the American Team.
The NFL Players Association has hosted the Collegiate Bowl for draft-eligible college players annually since 2012, providing the players with information about the league and the NFLPA. Rice, along with other current and former players, will be given the opportunity to speak with the college players about their NFL careers.
Rice played for the Ravens for six seasons before he was cut in 2014 after a video was published of him punching his then fiancée Janay Palmer in an elevator. Rice, 28, said in December that he is still hoping to return to the NFL as a player.
The Collegiate Bowl will kick off at 6 p.m. ET on Saturday at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.
