KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KWCH) - Kansas native Katie Sowers has joined the coaching staff for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Sowers made the announcement on her Instagram page on Wednesday, thanking the Chiefs for the opportunity.

“Retired from coaching in the NFL? Nah. Kansas City.. I’m home! Huge thanks to the @chiefs organization for believing in me and providing me another opportunity to grow my coaching experience while learning from the best in the game through the Bill Walsh Diversity fellowship. Let’s keep growing the game. See you this summer, chiefs kingdom,” reads her post.

Sowers joined the NFL in 2016 as a coach for the Atlanta Falcons. She joined the San Francisco 49ers in 2019 as an intern and then a full-time offensive assistant.

The Hesston, Kansas native became the first female coach in Super Bowl history when the 49ers took on the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. The Chiefs won, 31-20.

Sowers’ contract with San Francisco expired in 2020.
