On Monday, the Cardinals announced they will add Jen Welter to their coaching staff as an intern to help coach the inside linebacker core. Welter will become the first woman in NFL history to hold a coaching position.

Welter is in the same position as Becky Hammon. Bruce Arians, like Gregg Popovich, is a great coach to work under. Arians won two Super Bowls as an offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers and AP NFL Coach of the Year twice.

Arians is a great football mind like Popovich is a basketball genius, and these two ladies will benefit from being around and learning from these two coaches, not to mention the history that both of these women have in their perspective sports.
