The 49ers assistant coach continues to break down walls in the league.
San Francisco 49ers assistant coach Katie Sowers is breaking down walls in football. She recently became the second woman to be named a full-time assistant coach in the NFL. Now she has become the first openly gay coach in the league.
“No matter what you do in life, one of the most important things is to be true to who you are,” Sowers, explained in a new interview with Outsports. “There are so many people who identify as LGBT in the NFL, as in any business, that do not feel comfortable being public about their sexual orientation.”
