Redskins Set to Make History?

Chris Russell

You remember Katie Sowers, a full-time assistant coach for Kyle Shanahan and the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers?

She was the first "female and first openly gay coach to coach in a Super Bowl per Wikipedia. 

Now - the Redskins are about to make a different kind of history per a report. 

For an organization that is constantly criticized for their moniker and their poor history, this is a step in the right direction towards doing something the right way.

JFC! Can us men have just one thing to ourselves? A women who never played football teaching at this level, pure liberalism at it's best or he is tapping her. Don't care what you think, women don't need to be in football period and yes I will say the same for guy coaches that didn't play this game at least at a H.S level. Don't bother listing the coaches who never played and who are now coaches, I know who they are for the most part.
