Jennifer King has been promoted to offensive assistant by the Washington football team, making her the first full-time black women’s coach in NFL history.

King’s climb up the coaching ladder was reported by NFL Network. She spent the 2020 season as an internship coach in Washington, working primarily alongside runners coach Randy Jordan.

He also made history earlier this month, alongside assistant coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive line, Lori Locust, and assistant strength and conditioning coach Maral Javadifar, when they became the first female coaches who occupied opposing margins in the playoffs.

King previously spent time in 2018 and 2019 working as an intern during training camp and out of season with the Carolina Panthers, and was a quality control coach at Dartmouth College during the 2019 season.

He also served as assistant receiving coach and special teams assistant for the now defunct Arizona Hotshots in the American Football Alliance.

Washington also made history in August 2020, when NFL runner-up Jason Wright was named the league’s first black team president.

The role was believed to be Marty Hurney, who worked alongside current Washington coach Ron Rivera in Carolina, but will now take on a high-ranking role at the reception.

Mayhew has been an executive in the NFL for 20 years and served as general manager of the Detroit Lions from 2008 to 2015.

He spent nine years as an NFL cornerback, including four with Washington, where he won Super Bowl XXVI in 1992.
