BALTIMORE (AP) – Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is serving as an assistant coach this week at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Rice has not played in the NFL since being suspended at the start of the 2014 season for domestic violence.

Rice is serving as assistant running backs coach for Mike Martz.

Martz is head coach of the National Team and Mike Holmgren is in charge of the American Team.

The teams are slated to practice Tuesday through Thursday. The game will be held Saturday in Carson, California.

The Collegiate Bowl is for draft-eligible college players and run by the NFLPA. According to the union, “the weeklong schedule provides participants with a first-class professional experience while introducing them to the business of the National Football League.”

Rice, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, is expected to provide players insight on how to act on and off the field.
