Retired New York Giants cornerback Sam Madison is still working to become a coach in the NFL, and one year after joining Big Blue for a three-week coaching program throughout training camp, Madison has now been hired by the Baltimore Ravens as part of the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship.
“My eventual goal is to coach DBs in the National Football League,” Madison said last year.
The Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship, which is administered through the NFL's Player Engagement Department, aims to increase the number of full-time minorities league-wide. It was a program introduced by Bill Walsh in 1987 when he brought in a large group of minority coaches in to gain experience during San Francisco 49ers training camp.
In addition to Madison, the Ravens also hired former NFL wide receiver Donte Stallworth, Richan Gaskins from Gallaudet University and Tsuyoshi Kawata from Stanford.
