{NEWS} Arizona Cardinals Make NFL History

Since this blog is about Fantasy Football for Chicks, Ladies, Girls, etc.  I wanted to make sure everyone knew what Bruce Arians and the Arizona Cardinals did today...they hired a female coach!

From the awesome Bruce Arians:

“Coaching is nothing more than teaching,” Arians said Monday. “One thing I have learned from players is, ‘How are you going to make me better? If you can make me better, I don’t care if you’re the Green Hornet, man, I’ll listen.’ I really believe she’ll have a great opportunity with this internship through training camp to open some doors for her.”

Let me introduce...Dr. Jen Welter:

·      Welter, 37, was hired by the Texas Revolution of the Indoor Football League in February to coach linebackers and special teams.

·      At 5-foot-2, 130 pounds, she became the first woman to play a non-kicking position in a men's professional football league in 2014 when she suited up as a running back and special teams player for the Revolution.

·      Welter has a master's degree in sports psychology and a Ph.D in psychology.

·      She won gold medals in 2010 and 2013 as a member of Team USA at the IFAF Women's World Championship.

·      She played rugby at Boston College and played professional football for more than 14 years in women's leagues. She helped the Dallas Diamonds of the Women's Football Alliance win four titles.

This is exciting news for the NFL and for American Girls who either want to play or coach one day. 

I am very proud of the Arizona Cardinals!  

What are your thoughts?
