On this episode of “The Tuff Juice Podcast,” Caron Butler welcomes a true trailblazer to the show! Dr. Jennifer Welter made history in 2015 when she joined the Arizona Cardinals as an assistant coaching intern for training camp and the preseason, becoming the NFL’s first female coach. More than an answer to a trivia question, she earned the respect and admiration of players with her knowledge of the game, coaching abilities, and underdog story, opening doors for women who’ve followed in her footsteps. “Coach Jen” talks about her NFL experience, the best advice she got going into it, her time playing pro and semi-pro football, the impact that her Vietnam vet father had on her mindset, her football camps for girls, and more. This one hits hard!
