HONOLULU — Even though the season is over for the Chiefs, Andy Reid will have one more game to coach. The NFL announced on Wednesday that the Kansas City coaching staff will take the reins for one of the Pro Bowl teams. The Green Bay Packers staff will coach the other.
The Pro Bowl will take place Sunday, Jan. 31 at 6 p.m. in Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, broadcast on ESPN.
Andy Reid and the Packers’ Mike McCarthy will be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft, which is set for 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 27. The draft will be televised on ESPN2.
NFL Hall of Famers Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice will serve as non-playing captains of their Pro Bowl squads and will choose which coaching staff helms their team. Irvin and Rice return to the Pro Bowl after being the winning captains of the last two Pro Bowls.
The game will continue the revised format from the 2014 Pro Bowl, with players assembled onto “unconferenced” teams. Players were chosen in a public vote regardless of conference, and the teams will be determined in the Pro Bowl Draft.
