Jennifer King continues to break barriers!

Earlier this year, King became the first Black woman to be a full-time coach in the NFL after serving as a coaching interim during the 2020 season. And she's back at it again.

On Tuesday night (December 21), King became the first Black woman to be a position coach in NFL history after stepping up to be the Washington Football Team's running back coach as they faced off against the Philadelphia Eagles.

King took on the role, as the team experiences a Covid-19 outbreak, leaving head running back coach Randy Jordan and seven other assistant coaches unable to coach this week.

While the Washington Football team lost out to Philly 17-27, King's history-making feat is definitely worth celebrating.

King is one of just two female assistant coaches currently in the NFL. Lori Locust serves as the assistant defensive line coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

King and the rest of the Washington Football Team will head to Texas on Sunday (December 26) to compete against the Dallas Cowboys.
