Jennifer King made history as the first Black woman to become a full-time assistant coach in the NFL. King, the assistant running back coach for the Washington Football Team, became the representation she didn’t see growing up as a young Black girl in North Carolina.

“I didn’t have anyone that looked anything like me working,” King told ESPN. “To be able to see that I think is big.”

After graduating from Guilford College, where King played basketball and softball, she joined the Woman’s Football Alliance, where she played various positions on the Carolina Phoenix and the New York Sharks. Her NFL career began in 2018 when she was enlisted as an intern for the Carolina Panthers.

This isn’t the first time King made history in the male-dominated industry. She was one of six women who broke NFL barriers as one of the first female coaches to “occupy opposing sidelines during a playoff game,” per the NFL.

King is adding some much-needed flavor to the sport, both on and off the field. Aside from her skill and knowledge of the game, she brings a swaggy style.

“I feel my style is pretty versatile,” she said via a quick and candid DM chat on Instagram. King’s social media page is a photo book of her fly fits that are always complete with cool kicks.

“I’m a coach, so I get to wear sweats almost every day,” she continued. “But it’s nice to step out in regular clothes sometimes. I like it all from small to big designers, but for me, it definitely starts with the shoes.”
