Arizona Cardinals announced the hiring of Jen Welter to the team's coaching staff. It is believed that she is the first woman to hold a coaching position of any kind in the NFL. Welter will work with the Cardinals' inside linebackers and will coach throughout training camp and the preseason as a training camp/preseason intern.
The Barber brothers aren't the only twins to make their mark on football. New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan and his twin brother Rob Ryan, a defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys until his contract was recently terminated, both got their start in the family business joining the defensive coaching staff of their father, Buddy Ryan, when he became head coach of the Arizona Cardinals in 1994.
