Marshawn Lynch to be co-owner of Oakland arena football team

Marshawn Lynch may have moved on from the NFL, but that doesn’t mean he’s done with football.

The retired running back has co-founded and is set to co-own the Oakland Panthers, a new professional arena football team set to debut as a member of the Indoor Football League in the spring.

According to The Mercury News, there will be a press conference Tuesday to announce the team name, appoint Kurt Bryan as head coach and introduce the ownership group.

Lynch credits his brother Davonte Sapp-Lynch, who plays in the IFL, for connecting him with Panthers co-owner Roy Choi and team president Scott McKibben earlier this year.
