Dallas Cowboys coaches will coach in Pro Bowl

Tyler, Texas (KETK) - Following the Dallas Cowboys heartbreaking 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional playoff, the Cowboys coaching staff confirmed they will coach in the Pro Bowl.
 
The news was confirmed by Charean Williams, a writer for the Fort Worth-Star Telegram.
The 2017 Pro Bowl coaching staffs consist of the losing teams in the AFC and NFC Divisional playoffs with the best regular-season records.
 
Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Jerome Bettis, All-Pro tight end Tony Gonzalez, two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and Super Bowl XXXV MVP Ray Lewis and former NFL Defensive Player of the Year and All-Pro defensive back Charles Woodson will serve as 2017 Pro Bowl Legends Captains. 
 
Bettis (offense) and Lewis (defense) will lead the AFC, while Gonzalez (offense) and Woodson (defense) will lead the NFC. During Pro Bowl Week, the four Legends Captains will serve as mentors for the Pro Bowl players, coach practices and be present on the sidelines on gameday. The NFL legends on both teams will also be assisted by two active player captains. 
 
Twenty-three of the players named to the Pro Bowl today are first-time All-Stars, including three rookies - running back Ezekiel Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott, of Dallas, and return specialist Tyreek Hill, of Kansas City.
