CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Mini Camp will come to an end after Thursday's practice and with it may come the end of a summer internship for one of their coaches.
- Jennifer King is out on the field shadowing wide receiver coaches
- Has a dream job of being an offensive coordinator in the NFL
- Coach Rivera has been pleased with King's work on the field
Jennifer King was a guiding force for the Johnson and Wales Women's Basketball team, leading them to a 22-4 record and a USCAA Division 2 National Title.
Now, she is out on the field with the Carolina Panthers, shadowing wide receiver coaches and learning about the pro game.
King has won a title playing women's pro football with the New York Sharks and has a dream job of being an offensive coordinator in the NFL.
"Women are doing some special things," stated King. "You're not just getting the opportunity, people are actually qualified to be in the position that they're in. I know Coach Harbaugh up at The Ravens has hired three women for training camp. I think it's just an amazing progression for women in football."
Coach Rivera has been pleased with King's work on the field, going so far as to say they could have brought her into the mix sooner.
As of now, there are no concrete plans for King's participation during training camp but as the number of women getting opportunities to coach in the NFL grows, Rivera realizes the NFL's career development program should continue to grow.
