Martavis Bryant to coach at Nevada high school during suspension

Friday July 29th, 2016

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant will serve as a receivers coach at a Nevada high school during his one-year suspension, reports Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Bryant, who has been suspended for the 2016 season after multiple violations of the NFL’s drug policy, will be living in Henderson, Nev., where he will also be training at Van Hook Sports Performance and volunteering at a local hospital.

The name of the school at which he will be working is still being finalized.

Bryant was issued the suspension in March after failing multiple drug tests. He previously suspended for four games in 2015.

The 24-year-old can apply for reinstatement into the league in January.

Fellow Steelers receiver Markus Wheaton said that he believes Bryant is on the right track to getting back into the league.

"He's not traveling as much. He's with the right people. He's stationary," Wheaton said. "I think he'll be fine."
