Leading the American Team offense will be Ted Tollner, who served as an NFL assistant for 15 seasons and worked with NFL quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft.
Former NFL star wideout Andre Johnson, who also played under Pagano in college and the NFL, will coach the wide receivers with Super Bowl champion Plaxico Burress. And Hall of Famer Jackie Slater returns to lead the offensive line for the American team.
