posted by Angela Guzman

Arizona CardinalsThe National Football League appears to be making the same strides toward gender equality by hiring Jen Welter who is the first female NFL coach.

The Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians hinted towards the hiring of a female coach back in March when a reporter questioned if the league would ever hire a woman to coach. Arians responded by saying, “The minute they can prove they can make a player better, they’ll be hired.” The tone and open-minded response prompted rumors to circulate and eyebrows to be raised.

Arians is a nontraditional coach that often thinks outside of the box when it comes to the game of football and how to comprise a winning team. When looking for coaches to hire, Arians sought out professionals who were experienced and had the ability to reach players on another level. Welter fits that description – she has 14 years of professional football experience within the women’s league and in essence lives and breathes the game.

In addition, Arians likes to give the underdog a fair chance. He received a lot of grief for playing defensive back Tyrann Mathieu and wide receiver Josh Brown yet, both players proved to be truly exceptional players.

posted by Angela Guzman

Becky HammonBecky Hammon made history again on Monday by becoming the first female coach to win a NBA Summer League Title, as she led the San Antonio Spurs to a championship victory at the NBA Las Vegas Summer League Championship.

The Spurs first game against the Knicks was a disappointment but they rebounded with a 93-90 win over the Phoenix Suns. In an interview after the game Hammon said, “It was a grind. They’ve been together about 17 days. They really started to kind of gel here these last two or three games. They listened, and they played really hard for me. So I’m just (appreciative of) their attentiveness and alertness and their desire to win.”

Hammon has silenced her critics and put to bed any reservations, that others may have had, about her ability to coach and win. Not only does she understand the game of basketball but she is able to relate to the players at a level that is appreciated and admired.
