Kathryn Smith made history last week becoming the first female full-time coach in the National Football League as the Buffalo Bills' quality control-special teams coach.

The Bills' head coach was inspired to promote Smith in part by other professional sports teams and their female coaches. The San Antonio Spurs appointed Becky Hammon, a former WNBA player, as a full-time assistant coach in 2014 and last year, the Sacramento Kinds hired Nancy Lieberman.
