Photos:Meet Jen Welter, the first female American football coach

Jen Welter made history when she was appointed as the first female coach in the NFL for the Arizona Cardinals.

This is not her "first" though.On February 12, 2015, the Indoor Football League's Texas Revolution named Welter their linebackers and special teams coach making her first woman to coach in a men's professional football league.

On January 24, 2014, the Revolution announced signing 5-foot-2, 130-pound Jennifer Welter as a running back. This made her the second female player for a position other than kicker or placekick-holder on a men's professional football team, and the first at running back.

Wow!! Lofty feat for a woman in a male dominated sport.
