Ok all of you who thought Jen Welter was a intern coach for the Arizona Cardinals raise your hand …ok I didn’t know that too especially after the big press conference and the fact that history was being made you would think all parties involved would have given a heads up on this history making hire only to find out it was a short term thing.
But in either case it was the first of it’s kind for the NFL and who knows maybe this is the start of something we will see again real soon. As for Welter she enjoed the experience and is looking forward to more of what’s in store for the future.
“It’s been fantastic,” she said (via AP). “This is such a good group of guys who I think really embraced what could have been a challenging situation, and they just ran with it. I mean these players and these coaches have just been fantastic for me. It’s been like a dream come true.” …
“I am waiting to see what will happen next and I’m really excited,” she said. “I consider this a complete win. The biggest question coming in was would guys in the NFL respond to a woman coaching them, and the obvious answer is yes.”
