Woman Hired to Coach Men's Varsity Football Team

Last Tuesday Natalie Randolph became the only female that coaches a men's varsity high school football team in the United States. She isn't the first woman ever hired to coach a men's varsity football team; she just happens to be the only female employed in that position in the United States today. Randolph also managed to accomplish this feat in Washington D.C. The last time the D.C. public school system hired a woman as the head coach of a men's varsity football team was 1985. Wanda Oates lasted one day at Ballou High. Natalie Randolph has already made it six times as long as head coach of the Coolidge Colts. ...more
