Jaguars will not coach in Senior Bowl

Chuck Cook -US PRESSWIRE

The Lions and Raiders, each of whom finished 4-12 in 2012, will coach the North and South squads, respectively.

While the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs finished in a tie for the NFL's worst record at 2-14, neither team's staffs will be coaching at the 2013 Senior Bowl in three weeks. Instead it will be the Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders coaching staffs running the show in Mobile, Alabama, the Senior Bowl officially announced in a press release on Thursday.

Typically the teams with the NFL's worst records are given the first opportunity to be the coaches for the game, but the Chiefs have yet to hire a replacement for Romeo Crennel (although, Andy Reid is reportedly close to a deal with the team) and the Jaguars are in the midst of a general manager that seems likely to result in the firing of Mike Mularkey.

The common thought is that teams that coach in the Senior Bowl have an advantage by getting to work with draft prospects first hand and see the way they absorb information and practice.

Kickoff of the 2013 Senior Bowl is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 26.
