"My staff and I are looking forward to coaching in the Senior Bowl," Sparano said. "The Senior Bowl's outstanding track record and history of developing players for the National Football League is well-known and we're excited to have the opportunity to work with these young players in preparation for the next stage of their careers."
This will mark the eighth time the Lions have worked the game, the last in 2003.
"I've been a part of two staffs that have coached at the Senior Bowl and found both experiences to be exceptional," Schwartz said.
