Holmgren, Martz to coach all-stars

CARSON, Calif. (AP) Mike Holmgren and Mike Martz will serve as head coaches for the fourth annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

The game, sponsored by the NFL Players Association, will be played Jan. 17 at the StubHub Center.

Holmgren, one of the masters of the West Coast offense who led Green Bay to the 1996 NFL championship, will coach the American team. Martz, the offensive coordinator of the Rams' Greatest Show on Turf in the late 1990s and early 2000s, will coach the National team.

For one week preceding the bowl, players will receive an in-depth introduction to the union.

Only draft-eligible players will be invited to the all-star game.
