Monday Sports In Brief (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
Boston's bid to host the 2024 Olympics was undercut by its own mayor, its skeptical public and, finally, leaders of the U.S. Olympic Committee, who were tired of the city's ever-changing blueprint. Next, it might be time to see if there is more Olympic love in Los Angeles. After the USOC and Boston cut ties, CEO Scott Blackmun said the federation still wants to try to host the 2024 Games.

The Arizona Cardinals have hired Jen Welter to coach inside linebackers through their upcoming training camp and preseason. The Cardinals say Welter is believed to be the first woman to hold a coaching position of any kind in the NFL. Welter played running back and special teams in 2014 for the Texas Revolution of the Indoor Football League, becoming the first woman to hold a non-kicking position for a men's professional sports league.

Arizona Cardinals hire NFL's first-ever female coaching intern (Shutdown Corner) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
The Arizona Cardinals have hired Jen Welter, who is believed to be the first woman to hold an NFL coaching position of any kind, as a  training camp/preseason intern working with the team's inside linebackers.  Head coach Bruce Arians was asked at the owners meetings in March  about the possibility of female coaches in the NFL, and his response foretold this move: “The minute they can prove they can make a player better, they’ll be hired,” Arians said. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] Soon after that, he heard from a coach with the Texas Revolution in the Indoor Football League who told him about Welter, the former  collegiate rugby player who played 14 seasons of pro football, mostly in the Women’s Football Alliance, and who was with the Revolution. Arians was more than happy to give her a chance. “Coaching is nothing more than teaching,” Arians said, per the team's official website . “One thing I have learned from players is, ‘How are you going to make me better? If you can make me better, I don’t care if you’re the Green Hornet, man, I’ll listen.’ I really believe she’ll have a great opportunity with this internship through training camp to open some doors for her.” Here's Welter's response on Twitter: I am honored to be a part of this amazing team. Special thanks to @BruceArians & the @AZCardinals https://t.co/FcDG1b7P4E — Dr. Jen Welter (@jwelter47) July 28, 2015 Notice the "Dr." part? Yes, Welter is a heavyweight, it turns out. She has  a master’s degree in sport psychology and a PhD in psychology. Welter also was the first female to play a non-kicking position in a men’s pro football league, spending time at running back and on special teams, for the Revolution in 2014. This is a meritorius move, Arians said, not a publicity grab. Arians said: “She came for an OTA and I met her, and I thought she was the type of person that could handle this in a very positive way for women and open that door,” adding that Cardinals veterans said “they were all very cool with it.” “It’s not going to be a distraction in any way,” Arians said. It has been a banner year for women in men's professional sports. Not only is the NFL bringing on its first full-time female official in Sarah Thomas this season, but an NBA team — the San Antonio Spurs — won a summer league championship with Becky Hammon, whom they hired last year, running the squad .
