Yes, she can: Why Condoleezza Rice has what it takes to be a head coach in the NFL

Domonique Foxworth offers a player’s perspective on why the former secretary of state can succeed in the league

Alex Smith’s gruesome injury in Washington and the exciting emergence of Lamar Jackson in Baltimore weren’t the only surprises this weekend in the NFL. Adam Schefter had fans doing a double take when he reported that a league source told ESPN the Cleveland Browns were interested in interviewing former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for their head coaching vacancy.

Although both Browns general manager John Dorsey and Rice denied the likelihood of Rice becoming the first woman to become a head coach in NFL history, The Undefeated’s senior writer Domonique Foxworth explains why Rice has what it takes to be successful in the role.
