Headline Goes Here

STANFORD, Calif. - Condoleezza Rice will be a keynote speaker when the NFL holds its career transition program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business this week.

Forty former players are expected to attend the four-day event that begins Friday.

Rice, the former Secretary of State, is a professor of political science at Stanford. She says, "As an educator, I look forward to working with the NFL to help these players find their footing in their new careers so they can have a lasting impact in their communities."

The program began in 2006 and more than 700 NFL players have taken part.
