SFA's Arlington Nunn Receives NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship
May 15, 2013
Stephen F. Austin assistant head coach Arlington Nunn has received the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship, which is an annual program designed to give talented young minority coaches the opportunity to observe, participate and gain experience at NFL Clubs' training camps and offseason workouts. Ultimately, the program looks to help coaches gain a full-time NFL position.
"Coach Nunn has been a valuable asset to the program and the Nacogdoches community for many years," said head coach J.C. Harper. "His morals and family values reflect who he is as a person. I can see why the NFL would be interested in Arlington."
The NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship is utilized by all 32 NFL franchises. Each NFL franchise chooses the aspects of the program it wants to administer.
"This program has been extremely beneficial over the years, paving the way for many coaches who have gone on to successful NFL careers," said former Cleveland Browns president and Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Holmgren. "As a head coach with the Packers and Seahawks, I had many coaches work for us during camp who were able to get full-time positions because of that valuable experience. It was a tremendous learning environment for them and it continues to open doors for many young coaches."
Nunn is in his second stint with the Lumberjack football program, and over the course of the past eight seasons he has worked with the Lumberjack receivers and secondary. During his first stop in Nacogdoches, Nunn produced All-American linebacker, and NFL Pro Bowl selection, Jeremiah Trotter. More recently he has produced All-America receiver Dominique Edison, and All-America corner Josh Aubrey.
