The Bills announced the first NFL team hiring of a female salaried coach. Kathryn Smith was named the team’s special team’s quality control coach. The position had been vacant the entire four hours since team officials invented it earlier that same day. Smith was previously a personal assistant to head coach Rex Ryan, an administrative assistant, and intern. I think this is a promotion. It’s hard to tell with obscure jobs given to women who spend a lot of alone time late night with the boss.
Kathryn Smith has done an outstanding job in the seven years that she has worked with our staff. She certainly deserves this promotion based on her knowledge and strong commitment, just to name a couple of her outstanding qualities, and I just know she’s going to do a great job serving in the role of Quality Control-Special Teams. — Rex Ryan
Knowledge and strong commitment seem rather vague for a coaching hire. Can you provide more details on how her bare feet look on videotape? Just file the EEOC complaint now and go work somewhere that will take you seriously. Football isn’t the place for you. Even football players hate it now for making them forget about Wednesday and Thursday by the time they’re forty. The Bills haven’t been to the playoffs in sixteen years, the current longest drought in the NFL. It’s hard not to see this as pandering. I hope Smith sues and takes over the team and moves them somewhere warmer like a smart owner would’ve done years ago. There’s no dignity in being as crappy as a Florida NFL team when you’re not in Florida.
