    Yup and about time after she was a summer intern under the Bill Walsh NFL diversity coaching fellowship and was hired cause she has demonstrated in coaching better than other coaches thus far, not cause she's a female.

    Welcome aboard to the 49ers organization, Katie!

    I think its pretty cool to see women finally breaking in to the coaching ranks in the NBA, and now the NFL.
    Hopefully the players will respect and be willing to learn from her.

    i get in bball but really what can an NFL WR learn from a woman? not to be sexist, genuine question as i could care less who coaches. at least in bball women have a pro league and the game is mostly the same so the experience and knowledge is there. this woman clearly earned her job and again im not knocking just curious for some opinions.

    also who and when was the first? feels strange i havent heard about that before seeing how its pretty big news.

    I don't know, but women are pretty prevalent in skating and conditioning training in hockey. Seems like she'll be more of a coaches assistant than coaching players in anything.


    Always great to see barriers being chiseled away at, especially due to merit and not her gender. They are keeping her around because of who she is, not because of her vagina.

    You could have done a little research and found out that she played QB for a women pro football team. (Not in lingerie.) Besides, there is little to no correlation between coaching ability and playing experience. A football coach does instruction (e.g. on technique) and analysis (e.g. film study).

    It's a bit like asking why is Sanjay Lal a WR coach when India doesn't have American football.
