NFL teams with the worst records have a chance to coach the two Senior Bowl squads. The Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs, two of the four teams that have a worse record than the Lions, fired their head coaches on Black Monday. Typically, organizations undergoing a coaching change do not participate in the Senior Bowl.
Schwartz and his staff coached the Senior Bowl's North squad to a 31-13 victory over the South in 2010. This year, Raiders coach Dennis Allen will helm the North squad. Schwartz will lead the South team.
"Jim Schwartz is a personal friend," Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage said in a statement. "I know how important the Senior Bowl is in his eyes, while Dennis Allen is one of the up-and-coming young head coaches in the professional game."
The 2013 Senior Bowl will be televised on NFL Network.
