Biggs: Crennel, Schottenheimer to coach East-West game

Romeo Crennel and Marty Schottenheimer have been named as the coaches for the 85th East-West Shrine Game.

Crennel will lead the East team and Schottenheimer will coach the West in the game that will be played Jan. 23 at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla.

Schottenheimer’s long history in professional football includes playing in the College All-Star Game that used to take place in Chicago.

“This is a terrific opportunity for the players to get experience working with coaches from the pro-ranks,” Schottenheimer said. “It gives them an idea of how things work as they pursue professional football. As coaches, we all enjoy the opportunity to interact with the players and impart knowledge about playing at the next level.”
