Patrick Graham, the defensive coordinator for the Las Vegas Raiders, has been announced as one of the head coaches in the upcoming Senior Bowl.

Chicago Bears Offensive Coordinator Luke Getsy will lead the American team, while Graham coaches the National team in the 74th annual event. The game is scheduled to take place at 11:30 a.m. PST, Saturday, Feb. 4, at the University of South Alabama.

The Bears hold the number one pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. The Raiders are slotted to pick seventh.

Graham, whose Raiders are coming off a 6-11 season, said in the press release it is an honor to lead the National Team for the Senior Bowl.

“I look forward to meeting and working with these talented young players and getting to know them on an individual and collective basis during Senior Bowl festivities,” Graham said in the release. “To be able to evaluate and cultivate relationships with these young men as they begin their professional journeys is an invaluable experience and I sincerely thank Jim Nagy and the Senior Bowl for this tremendous opportunity.”
