NFL: Jaguars Add Eight to Staff Through Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship Program

JACKSONVILLE (www.sportsdayjax.com  The Jacksonville Jaguars have announced eight additions to the coaching staff as part of the NFL’s Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship program. 

For over 30 years, the league wide program has helped outstanding coaches gain exposure to NFL training camps and offseason workout programs.

All eight coaches will be with the team for the entirety of training camp, which began on Wednesday, July 26. For the second consecutive year, Jaguars Assistant Offensive Line Coach Todd Washington led the search for the participants. Washington has participated in the program five times as a member of East Texas Baptist University, the Los Angeles Chargers, the Los Angeles Rams, the Chicago Bears, and the Miami Dolphins.

 

“When I was asked to lead the selection process, I was eager to do it,” said Washington. “I take pride in trying to find the right people because I understand the value it can provide to both the coaches in the program and the team. As someone who has been a participant many times, I am thankful that Coach Pederson and the Jaguars understand the importance of this program and are committed to giving these coaches invaluable experience that will advance their careers.”
