Cowboys Assistant George Edwards To Participate In NFL Coaching Summit

Dallas Cowboys’ Senior Defensive assistant coach George Edwards will participate in an upcoming virtual Quarterback Coaching summit, hosted by the NFL and Black College Football Hall of Fame.

The summit will be hosted on June 22nd and 23rd, with the goal of providing developmental opportunities to minority coaches. According to DallasCowboys.com, nearly 40 NFL and NCAA coaches were invited to participate and present.

NFL EVP of Football Operations, Troy Vincent, spoke to the importance of the summit, saying that it brings together the “brightest, most innovative and successful offensive minds from around the country” to “leave no doubt about the “promising pipeline” of coaches to come.

One important aspect of this summit is that it focuses on the offensive side of the ball. A frequent excuse for the lack of minority head coaches in the NFL has been that the league is moving towards offensive minded coaches, many of which tend to be white (and sometimes former quarterbacks).

Hopefully, events like these will showcase the pipeline of excellent minority coaches on either side of the ball.

Edwards himself is a defensive assistant for the Dallas Cowboys, and worked as a defensive coordinator with the Vikings, Bills, and Redskins from 2014-2019. Way back when, however, Edwards began his NFL coaching career as the Cowboys linebackers coach in 1998.

He’s certainly a welcomed addition and valuable football mind on Mike McCarthy’s new staff.

  1. The story is well written . My concern is the need for minority coaches to have a separate training. If all coach training is on a level playing field then it can be done in one room with one training curriculum. I am absolutely sure that separate training is not equal training. Now come on guys let’s get off the gas. Let’s get it together. Let’s be one nation under God!
