The East-West Shrine Bowl, a yearly college football all-star game, gives draft-eligible college standouts a chance to showcase their abilities before NFL coaches, scouts, fans and media all while benefiting Shriners Hospital for Children. The game will be played on Saturday, Jan. 20.
Caldwell, an 11-year NFL veteran and 12-year coach at the NFL level, will be joined by a number of NFL-caliber coaches on his staff, including two familiar faces from Tampa Bay’s coaching tree this past season. Antwaan Randle El will serve as the East’s wide receivers coach while Chad Wade will serve as a strength and conditioning coach.
