SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Moments after San Francisco’s 31-20 Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, conservative pundit Ann Coulter took to Twitter to take a social media jab at 49ers assistant coach Kate Sowers.
On Sunday, Sowers became the first woman to be on a NFL coaching staff at the Super Bowl. She also is the first openly LGBTQ coach in the league. Coulter apparently didn’t appreciate the achievement.READ MORE: COVID: Healdsburg Family Leaving California On Cross-Country Trip In Search Of New Home
Being the first woman to coach in the Super Bowl may be surreal to some fans, but Sowers had made it clear she hopes she’s blazing a path for many more to follow.
“I feel like a broken record, but what I want to continue to say is that even though I’m the first, the most important thing is I’m not the last and we continue to grow it,” she said.READ MORE: COVID Vaccine: Santa Clara County Debuts Vaccination Site For Teachers, Education Workers At Fairgrounds
Reaching the Super Bowl has brought Sowers a much bigger platform, including a 30-second Microsoft commercial that ran repeatedly during the NFL’s conference championships.
