Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has made it clear he wants another shot at the NFL. In the meantime, it appears he could be content with another opportunity — coaching running backs at a New Jersey high school.

The former NFL star would certainly have a lot to offer the young men at Don Bosco Prep High School, both in terms of football knowledge and life knowledge. It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out.
Rice became infamous when a video emerged showing him brutally attack his wife, who was at the time still just his girlfriend. He hasn’t been accepted back into the NFL since that time, despite his efforts to better himself and others as a result of his experience.
