Senior Bowl 2013: Lions accept invitation to coach in game

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions will coach one of the teams in the 2013 Senior Bowl.

The Detroit Lions have accepted an invitation to coach one of the teams in the 2013 Senior Bowl, according to the team's official site. Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said earlier this week that the team would "embrace" the opportunity to coach in the game if asked, and they did in fact receive an invitation.

The Lions last coached in the Senior Bowl in 2010. Schwartz and company coached the North Team to a 31-13 victory against Tony Sparano's South Team. During that week of practice in 2010, the Lions got an up-close look at Wayne State running back Joique Bell, who was on the North Team. Bell, of course, now plays for the Lions.

This year, Lions coaches will square off against Dennis Allen and the Oakland Raiders coaching staff, which have accepted an invite as well.

The 2013 Senior Bowl will kick off at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 26. NFL Network will have the broadcast, and it will have coverage of the game and practices throughout the week. You can bet Pride Of Detroit will closely follow the game, especially now that the Lions are involved in coaching it.
