Following a successful 12 year college basketball coaching
career which included a National Championship and National
Coach of the Year honors in 2017, King decided to step away
from basketball to coach football full time. After attending the
2018 NFL Women in Football Forum, she obtained an internship
with the Carolina Panthers where she worked consecutive off-
seasons and preseasons with the wide receivers and running
backs. King was the Assistant Wide Receivers Coach for the
Arizona Hotshots in the Alliance of American Football and
worked the 2019 season at Dartmouth College where she
worked with the wide receivers and assisted with offensive
quality control for the 2019 Ivy League Champions. While at
Dartmouth, King became the first black female to coach in a
NCAA Division I game. In February of 2020, King became a
full season intern Offensive Assistant with the Washington
Football Team. Her duties included working with the running
backs and assisting with offensive quality control. Following the
2020 season, King was promoted to Assistant Running Backs
coach, making her the first black female position coach in NFL
history. King has also played women’s tackle football for 13
years as a quarterback, wide receiver and safety for the Carolina
Phoenix, N.Y. Sharks, D.C. Divas and D.C. Prodigy. She has
been named All American on 7 occasions and has won 2
National Championships.
