    I dont have any problem with this, she has a background in football, has been teaching at this school for a couple years, she has coaching experience on male football teams. I would imagine she would have male asst coaches as there are 2 things she should never do giving her age and how attractive she is. One is to never step foot in the locker room and 2 is to never place herself in a situation where she would be alone with one or more players that isnt in a very public place.

    I see no reason a woman couldn't be a great football coach. With women's football leagues sprouting up all over the place the game can be loved by women and men alike and knowledge of the game is knowledge of the game.

    Good luck to her and I hope she does well.

    I plan on teaching my daughter the game of football and turning her into a more knowledgable Steelers fan than any man she may marry one day. I just hope she doesn't turn out playing the game

    If women can compete at a high level in MMA, they can play and teach any sport as far as I am concerned. Anyone on here ever watch Gina Carano in MMA?

    Let's hope the Rooney's don't get some crazy idea to have more women coaches in the NFL .

    She was hired for the following reasons......she is going to implement tutorial programs and after-school mentoring, she wants to raise GPAs and get improved SAT prep classes for the players. Last on the list was winning football games. Hmmm…..while all the above scholastic endeavors are indeed noble but isn't a football coach supposed to coach football as their primary goal. Isn't the scholastic part of the equation the job of the academic wing of high school ?

    Yeah, I heard about this the other day.

    I hope she was hired for her coaching skills, but considering she had no prior coaching experience, I'm not sure what they would have based their decision on.

    I heard one comment worth noting, she isn't the first high school football HC. Some chic was hired as HC a while back but lasted only a day, she was forced out.

    Ok - I didn't read the article, I'm just recalling what I heard on the radio the other day. I thought they said she had no prior coaching experience, but I guess I was mistaken.

    Personally, I don't care what gender/race/creed/religion/voting party a coach is as long as they're qualified to do the job and do it well - AND they were hired because they were the best candidate for the position.

    Maybe Tomlin will hire her after this season if LeBeau retires?

    Ahh come on fellas. I know some women that make way better bosses than their male counterparts. I'm sure there could be some good female NFL coaches down the line.

    Heck, my wife kicked all your asses, except for NKySteeler in the pick-em contest this year.

    I'm sure that there very well could be some quality female coaches at some point. Hell, in my profession, there is less than 1% females... Doesn't mean it couldn't happen... If she (whoever she is) is qualified, I have no heartburn over it whatsoever... But it might make "locker room" activities a bit interesting...

    ... Since this isn't Steelers related, I'm gonna move it to the NFL Room....
