Dartmouth on Tuesday announced the hiring of Callie Brownson to be the offensive quality control coach for the Big Green. With the hiring, Brownson becomes the first known full-time female football coach at the Division I level.
“Callie is as good as anyone I’ve ever had in terms of her skill set, preparedness, attention to detail and passion,” said head coach Buddy Teevens said. “Players came up to me after a few days of preseason wondering if I would consider hiring her. She is a forward-thinking individual, very broad-minded. We had an opening, the preseason was kind of like a tryout and she excelled — on and off the field — every day.”
Brownson has quite the football background as a player on the D.C. Divas from 2010-17 in the Women’s Football Alliance. She was a five-time team captain and four-time All-American as a free safety and a running back, helping the Divas win national titles in 2015 and ’16.
