The Panthers are lending their coaching staff to Jerry Rice this Sunday for the Pro Bowl.

In the Pro Bowl on Sunday, Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice will be squaring off as they did so many times throughout their careers, except this time as general managers.

Rice's team will have the Carolina Panthers coaching staff serving as his brain trust on the sidelines, led by Ron Rivera. Rivera just finished his third season with the Panthers, leading them to a 12-4 record, NFC South title and first round bye before losing to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional round.

Mike Shula will also being enjoying the Hawaii weather as the offensive coordinator. It shouldn't be too tough for Shula to find a few playmakers to get his game plan going.

Sean McDermott will be running the defense, a unit that will be hard-pressed to play well in a game amounting to touch football. Richard Rodgers is the special teams coordinator.
