Buffalo Bills make NFL history - first franchise to appoint full-time female coach

Published Add your comment

The Buffalo Bills have made history by becoming the first NFL side to hire a woman to a full-time coaching job. Kathryn Smith has been appointed as Bills special teams quality control coach, having served as administrative assistant to head coach Rex Ryan for the past few years. Of course, it was the Bills who appointed the NFL’s first ever female scout as well, back in 1986, so, very much props to them. Meanwhile, the St. Lewis Rams have announced they have received more than 45,000 season ticket deposits over the last two days. The Rams will move to LA this year in time for the 2016 season, and it would appear their reception on the west coast is to be a raucous one.
