The Detroit Lions and New York Jets have been named as the coaching staffs for the 73rd annual Reese’s Senior Bowl, set for Feb. 5, 2022, at Hancock Whitney Stadium on the campus of the University of South Alabama.
The game will air live on the NFL Network at 1:30 CT. The Lions have the No. 2 pick, while the Jets own the Nos. 4 and 10 picks in the 2022 NFL draft.
“The Reese’s Senior Bowl has long been the nation’s most prestigious college all-star game and it is the only one coached by entire staffs from two NFL clubs,” according to a statement. “NFL Football Operations smartly uses the draft order to select participating clubs because it serves as a valuable mechanism of parity for competitive balance in the league each year.”
“We are excited to begin our 2022 offseason by coaching the Senior Bowl and getting a first-hand look at some of the top collegiate players as they prepare for the next level,” Lions head coach Dan Campbell said in a statement. “My staff and I welcome this unique opportunity. I know Jim Nagy and his staff will put on a first-class event and we look forward to a fun week in Mobile.”
