Ray Rice coaching running backs at NFLPA Collegiate Bowl
Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, out of the NFL since two seasons ago following a high-profile domestic violence incident, is trying his hand at coaching. Rice and Priest Holmes are coaching the running backs for the National team coached by Mike Martz at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl all-star game. "Very blessed to be able to give back to these college kids," Rice said. Practices are this week in advance of Saturday's game in Carson, Calif. Rice, 28, was cut by the Ravens in September of 2014 after a graphic video surfaced of him punching his wife, Janay, at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Rice has been training to try to get back into the NFL. He hasn't worked out or visited any NFL teams, though, according to league sources.
