Senior Bowl an opportunity
ALLEN PARK The Lions coaching staff will likely coach at the Senior Bowl on Jan. 30 at Mobile, Ala. Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said on Thursday they see a tremendous upside to getting to know some of the top seniors in college football. The Lions have the second overall pick in Aprils draft. An official announcement will be made by Senior Bowl officials.
In his season-ending wrap-up media session today, Mayhew said there have been no coaching changes discussed at this time.
He also announced that running back Kevin Smith will undergo shoulder surgery on his left shoulder. He will wait until he is able to walk without crutches due to the recent surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament. Smith separated the shoulder early in the season and chose to harness it and play out the season with the injury.
