The Washington Football team is going to name Jennifer King as a fulltime offensive assistant coach. King will become the first full-time African-American female coach in NFL history.

King spent time with the Carolina Panthers before becoming a coaching intern with the WFT for the 2020 season. She worked with running backs coach Randy Jordan with Washington.

King worked as an intern for two years under current WFT coach Ron Rivera when he was in Carolina, in 2018 and ’19. She also was an assistant receivers coach for the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football.

She played for three professional women’s football teams from 2006-19.
