Kelsey Martinez - Las Vegas Raiders

On August 8th, The Rocky Mountain Collegian reported that Kelsey Martinez was hired as the first female assistant coach for the Raiders. When asked about the move Kelsey replied: “I am from Colorado, so I was a bit of a Broncos fan. But once I started working in Orlando, I actually became a ‘players’ fan because we work with a lot of players from around the league. I just would follow them. Once I came out here, obviously, I became a Raiders. And once you’re a Raider, you’re always a Raider,” she added.

There is an exciting journey ahead for the former Ram as the Raiders head to Miami for a showdown with the Dolphins Sept. 23, and eventually on to Las Vegas where a top-of-the-line Raiders Stadium has already broken ground.
