Miami Jackson Senior High School announced Monday that they have hired Lakatriona “Bernice” Brunson as its new head football coach, the first female to fill that role in state history.
“As a woman, I’m ready for everyone to judge me because it’s a man’s field,” Brunson said during her introductory media appearance at the school.
Brunson, who was already a physical education teacher at the school, replaces former Miami Hurricanes star Earl Little, who resigned after two seasons at Jackson.
In one of her first moves with the program, Brunson hired rap legend Luther Campbell as an assistant coach.
