PRESS RELEASE MSSU:

Missouri Southern defensive coordinator Rashad Watson participated in the 2015 NFL and NCAA Coaches Academy this past weekend. 


Watson, who is in his fourth season as an assistant coach with the Lions, also participated in the NFL's Bill Walsh Minority Coaching program where he was a defensive assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs during their training camp in 2014. 

The academy was developed in 2011 as a collaborative effort between NCAA Leadership Development and NFL Player Engagement to positively influence diversity numbers in the college game and as a way for talented football coaches to get exposure. 

Watson was one of 30 NCAA coaches and one of ten Division II coaches to get accepted into the program. He was the only coach from the MIAA and the only coach from the NCAA Super Region III in the academy. 

Coaches were trained at the academy in sessions that included athletic operation and budget management, college recruiting and NFL scouting, media training, offensive and defensive strategies, as well as contract negotiations. 

The academy also allowed participants to meet ad interact with NCA athletics professionals, student-athlete affairs administrations and NCAA national office staff, as well as various NFL representatives. 

The keynote speakers at the event involved former NFL coach Dennis Green, as well as former NFK general manager Charley Casserly and current Memphis athletic director Tom Bowen. 

"I believe there are some outstanding up and coming young coaches in the game," Watson said. "This academy not only provides a great networking opportunity, but exposes the participants to a wealth of knowledge in interviewing techniques, communicating with campus administrators, and impacting the student athlete in an uplifting and positive manner. I want to be not only a leader as a coach, but also a better servant to my community. This coaches academy will grant me continuous professional development, while also increasing my personal development."
