Close-up of Black History Month Jennifer King becomes the first African American trainer intern of the year after being hired by Washington Redskins

The Redskins will be hiring the NFL's first full-time African-American female coach. During the 2018 Women's Football Alliance season she was a quarterback and receiver for the New York Sharks.

Jennifer King is not the type of person who's going to sell you on her capabilities with words or pontificating.

King previously worked for Redskins head coach Ron Rivera as a coaching intern with the Carolina Panthers in 2017.

While King has a lot of experience as a soccer coach, he also has experience in the game. She was named the USCAA Division II National Coach of the Year in 2018.

"Jennifer is a young and bright coach and will be a great addition to our staff". She was also an assistant wide receivers coach and special teams assistant for the Arizona Hotshots of the now-defunct AAF. Her familiarity with my expectations as a coach and my first-hand knowledge of her work ethic and preparation were important factors in taking her to the Redskins. During that time Rivera served as the team's head coach. Prior to joining the Skins, she was an offensive assistant with Dartmouth College primarily working with their wide receivers and creating scouting reports.

"Now, I'm at the bottom of the food chain, but I've been moving up".
