NFL commissioner Roger Goodell outlined in a memo to all 32 teams the next phase of reopening club facilities, which could involve the return of coaches.
"We expect that next week clubs will be permitted to include members of their coaching staffs among the employees permitted to resume work in the club facility," stated the memo obtained by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
The league continues to work with state and local officials to determine a date on which coaches will be allowed to return to team facilities, and it appears the players might soon follow.
"We are also continuing to work with the NFLPA on developing protocols that will allow at least some players to return to your facilities on a limited basis prior to the conclusion of the offseason program," the memo added.
Teams will be allowed to reopen ticket offices, retail shops, and other customer-facing facilities beginning June 1.
