Washington’s Jennifer King Makes NFL History After Being Promoted to be Gameday Running Backs Coach

Jennifer King made history Tuesday night.

With the Washington Football Team shorthanded and missing seven assistants against the Eagles due to COVID-19 — including running backs coach Randy Jordan — they promoted Jennifer King to be the gameday running backs coach against the Eagles.

King, 37, is the second female gameday coach in NFL history, and the first African-American woman to have the position. The first was Callie Brownson, who filled in several times for the Cleveland Browns last season.

King is one of two full-time female assistant coaches in the league, along with assistant defensive line coach Lori Locust in Tampa Bay.
