The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially accepted an invitation to be one of the coaching staffs for the 2014 Reese's Senior Bowl, an annual post-season all-star game featuring the top seniors entering the NFL Draft.
"I think it's awesome," Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said on Tuesday when asked about coaching the game. "I think it's a great opportunity. I did it one year (in 2007) and was part of it when we did it in Tampa and I think it's great."
The Jaguars have previously coached the Senior Bowl under Jack Del Rio and have made a habit out of picking up some players in the game. Three of the Jaguars 2013 NFL Draft picks were on the same Senior Bowl team last year, in Dwayne Gratz, Jonathan Cyprien and Denard Robinson.
The Jaguars will coach the South Team while the Atlanta Falcons will coach the North Team.
The Senior Bowl takes place beginning with the first practice on Monday, Jan. 20th with the game taking place on Saturday, Jan. 26th.
Big Cat Country will have a presence at the practices and will bring you the latest news from the game.
