Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship getting stronger with pipeline for future coaches

Diversity team personnel fellowship program continues in 32nd year

NEW YORK (November 12, 2019) – As part of its continuing efforts to strengthen the NFL coaching pipeline, the NFL today announced that 179 coaches participated in the 2019 BILL WALSH NFL DIVERSITY COACHING FELLOWSHIP. Of the total, 53 Bill Walsh fellows are former NFL players.

The Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship, named after late Pro Football Hall of Fame head coach Bill Walsh, provides NFL coaching experience to talented minority college coaches, high school coaches and former players. Walsh introduced the concept to the league in 1987 when he brought a group of minority coaches into his San Francisco 49ers’ training camp.

“The Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship is a tremendous opportunity for rising coaches to hone their skills by experiencing first-hand the methods and philosophies of NFL coaching staffs,” said NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations TROY VINCENT. “This fellowship is key to the future of the game as it identifies the next generation talented coaches.”

Since inception, nearly 2,000 minority coaches have participated in the program with support from all 32 clubs during offseason workouts, minicamps, and training camp. Some fellows were extended through the 2019 season such as NFL Legend HINES WARD who in September joined the New York Jets staff as a full-time offensive assistant. Other clubs who extended fellowships through the season include Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, and the Washington Redskins.

Out of 86 colleges and universities represented, 17 participants are coaches with HBCU football programs and 29 were from FBS institutions. High school coaches made up 19. This year’s program participants also included four women - CALLIE BROWNSON (Atlanta and Buffalo), JENNIFER KING (Carolina), SAMANTHA MULLET (Baltimore), and TRACY ZIMMER (Atlanta). The Miami Dolphins participated with 15 Bill Walsh fellows, the most of any team in 2019.

“Our organization was excited to provide opportunities and access throughout all levels of our football operation through the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship,” said Miami Dolphins General Manager CHRIS GRIER. “Our Head Coach Brian Flores has long said there’s a great number of smart, talented leaders across the league and he is all in for whatever he can do to help others gain exposure at this level. I have seen firsthand how this fellowship can changes lives and we appreciate the full support and the commitment from Stephen Ross every step of the way.”

The Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship is just one NFL program aimed at developing a diverse pipeline for club personnel. In 2019, 17 participants completed the NUNN-WOOTEN SCOUTING FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM. Nunn-Wooten, launched in January 2015, exposes former NFL players, former college football players, and current college football employees to a career in scouting. The program gives participants a unique glimpse into player personnel by introducing them to various areas related to both college and professional scouting.

The 2020 Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship and Nunn-Wooten Scouting Fellowship applications will open in Spring 2020.

Week 11 in the NFL starts with Thursday Night Football, Pittsburgh at Cleveland

THURSDAY NIGHT PREVIEW:

PITTSBURGH STEELERS (5-4) AT CLEVELAND BROWNS (3-6)

Week 11 of the NFL’s 100th season kicks off on Thursday, November 14 (8:20 PM ET, FOX/NFL Network/Amazon Prime) as the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns in an AFC North matchup. Thursday’s game marks the 133rd regular-season meeting between the two clubs, with the Steelers holding the all-time series advantage, 73-58-1. Pittsburgh has won seven of the past eight contests, with the last meeting between the Steelers and Browns in Cleveland ending in a 21-21 tie in Week 1 of the 2018 season. Each team enters Thursday night coming off home victories in Week 10.

Last week, the Browns defeated Buffalo, 19-16, as quarterback BAKER MAYFIELD passed for 238 yards and two touchdowns, including a game-winning 7-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver RASHARD HIGGINS with 1:44 remaining in the fourth quarter. Running back NICK CHUBB rushed for 116 yards last week and is the only AFC running back to rush for at least 100 yards in four games in 2019. Chubb has 919 rushing yards and joined Pro Football Hall of Famer JIM BROWN as the only players in Browns history to rush for at least 900 yards through the team’s first nine games of a season. Wide receiver JARVIS LANDRY has nine receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown in the win and needs three receptions on Thursday against Pittsburgh to surpass DEANDRE HOPKINS (528) for the most receptions through a player’s first six seasons in NFL history. Defensive end MYLES GARRETT leads the AFC with 10 sacks in 2019, and has four sacks and three forced fumbles in three career games against Pittsburgh.

In Week 10, the Steelers defense forced four turnovers and had four sacks in Pittsburgh’s 17-12 win over the Los Angeles Rams – the team’s fourth win in a row. Safety MINKAH FITZPATRICK had four tackles, an interception and a 43-yard fumble recovery returned for a touchdown in the win. Fitzpatrick, who had a 96-yard interception return for a touchdown in Week 9, became the first Steeler to have an interception return for a touchdown and a fumble recovery touchdown in the same season since 1996, and has a league-leading five interceptions since being traded to Pittsburgh in Week 3. Linebacker T.J. WATT had two sacks and a forced fumble in Week 10, and has 5.5 sacks and three forced fumbles over his past three contests. In four career games against Cleveland, Watt has seven sacks, 10 tackles for loss and an interception. Cornerback JOE HADEN matched his career high with five passes defensed last week, and added an interception and a forced fumble. Haden, the seventh-overall selection in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Browns, had 101 passes defensed and 19 interceptions in seven seasons (2010-16) with Cleveland. Pittsburgh running back JAMES CONNER is expected to make his return to the field on Thursday. Conner totaled 404 scrimmage yards (281 rushing, 123 receiving) and four rushing touchdowns in two games against Cleveland last season.

Adding to television availability, several streaming options will be available to fans. FOX Thursday Night Football games will be available to stream on Amazon via Prime Video and Twitch in addition to NFL, FOX and FOX Deportes digital properties across devices.* During the season, fans can learn all of the ways to watch at NFL.com/TNF.

  • Baltimore quarterback LAMAR JACKSON completed 15 of 17 pass attempts (88.2 percent) for three touchdowns and zero interceptions for a 158.3 rating, the highest attainable mark, and added a career-long 47-yard touchdown run in the Ravens’ 49-13 win over Cincinnati.

Currently in his fourth season, Thomas surpassed JARVIS LANDRY (400 receptions) for the most receptions by a player in his first four seasons in league annals.

    Thomas, who has 1,027 receiving yards this season, joins MIKE EVANS (2014-17), A.J. GREEN (2011-14) and Pro Football Hall of Famer RANDY MOSS (1998-2001) as the only players to have at least 1,000 receiving yards in each of their first four seasons in NFL history.
