The 2008 Under Armour Senior Bowl was a college football exhibition game featuring players from the 2007 college football season and prospects in the 2008 NFL Draft.[1] It was played on January 26, 2008 at 3 p.m. EST at Ladd Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama.[2] Coverage of the event was on high-definition on the NFL Network between January 21–26.[3]

Coaching staffs[edit]

North[edit]

With the worst record (1–15) during the 2007 NFL season, the Miami Dolphins were originally slated to coach the North squad.[4] However, after all but two members of the coaching staff were fired the Dolphins became ineligible for the duties.[4] They were replaced by head coach Lane Kiffin and the Oakland Raiders, who went 4–12 in 2007.[5]

South[edit]

San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan and his staff coached the South squad for the third consecutive year after going 5–11 in 2007.[6]

[edit]

The clothing company Under Armour sponsored the event for the second consecutive year. The company also provided apparel for the game, including "newly-designed, state-of-the-art game jerseys."[7]
