Four New York Giants assistant coaches will participate in this year’s East-West Shrine Bowl Professional Development Opportunity.

Assistant defensive backs coach Anthony Blevins, offensive quality control coach Bobby Blick, defensive assistant Jody Wright and defensive quality control coach Mike Treier will be on staff at this year’s East-West Shrine Bowl.

The program is designed to continue growing the game through the development of personnel and increasing engagement with players throughout all levels of their athletic career.

At the end of the regular season, teams nominate active assistant coaches who are then reviewed by a panel of NFL Football Operations staff, East-West Shrine Bowl leadership and members of the NFL’s General Managers Advisory Committee to serve as coaches for this year’s event.

The 96th annual East-West Shrine Bowl had been scheduled to take place on Jan. 23 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., but it was was cancelled due to COVID-19 complications.

The event will still take place in a virtual format as student-athletes will participate in training/informational drills with current NFL coaches. Some of the 2021 all-stars will also participate in virtual engagements with Shriners Hospitals for Children patients in recognition of the game’s commitment to supporting the health care system’s life-changing mission.
