NFL partners with East-West Shrine game for development (The Associated Press)

The NFL is partnering with the East-West Shrine game to increase development opportunities for coaches and draft-eligible players. The NFL will supply the coaching staffs for the two teams from among current league assistant coaches whose teams do not advance to the playoffs. ”The East-West Shrine Game is not only a showcase for tremendous athletes who have a dream of playing at the next level, it is also a venue for upwardly mobile coaches in the NFL,” NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent says.
