Newsflash: D.C. High School Hires Woman Football Coach

The Washington Post reports that a high school in D.C.  has hired a woman as head coach of its varsity football team. Natalie Randolph, 29, has played women’s professional football for five seasons and served as an assistant coach to another D.C. high school for two seasons. She was officially introduced at a press conference earlier today, where some of her fellow faculty showed their support by wearing t-shirts featuring Randolph’s face and the tagline, “You play like a girl.”
