BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is now on Mike Martz’s coaching staff for the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl as a co-running backs coach. He joins former Kansas City Chiefs running back Priest Holmes.
This is one of the first opportunities presented to Rice, after having been out of the NFL since he was released by the Ravens in September 2014 after the domestic violence scandal.
The Collegiate Bowl is for draft-eligible college players.
Current and former players, like Rice, are given a platform to educate young players based on their experiences in the weeks leading up to the game.
The teams will hold practices this week, with the game to be played Saturday in Carson, California.
