Cards hire Jen Welter as first female assistant coach

The Arizona Cardinals made history Monday, announcing the hiring Jen Welter of the Indoor Football League as the NFL's first woman to hold a coaching position.

A former collegiate rugby player who played 14 seasons of pro football -- mostly in the Women's Football Alliance -- Welter was brought in by Bruce Arians as a training camp/preseason intern coaching inside linebackers.

"Coaching is nothing more than teaching," Arians explained Monday, via the team's official website. "One thing I have learned from players is, 'How are you going to make me better? If you can make me better, I don't care if you're the Green Hornet, man, I'll listen.' I really believe she'll have a great opportunity with this internship through training camp to open some doors for her."

If she knows football she knows football. Will be interesting to see how she does.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.
