LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. - Washington Football Team offensive assistant Jennifer King, who spent the 2020 season as a coaching intern, is going to be hired full-time, as originally reported by Ian Rapoport.

She had prior experience with Washington coach Ron Rivera as well, having spent two summers as a wide receivers coaching intern for Rivera and the Carolina Panthers.
