Following a successful 12 year college basketball coaching career which included a National Championship and National Coach of the Year honors in 2017, King decided to step away from basketball to coach football full time. After attending the 2018 NFL Women in Football Forum, she obtained an internship with the Carolina Panthers where she worked consecutive off-seasons and preseasons with the wide receivers and running backs. King was the Assistant Wide Receivers Coach for the Arizona Hotshots in the Alliance of American Football and worked the 2019 season at Dartmouth College where she worked with the wide receivers and assisted with offensive quality control for the 2019 Ivy League Champions.

In February of 2020, King was named Offensive Assistant with the Washington NFL franchise, becoming the first black female full time coach in NFL history.  Her duties include working with the running backs and assisting with offensive quality control. King has also played women’s tackle football for 13 years as a quarterback, wide receiver and safety for the Carolina Phoenix, N.Y. Sharks and D.C. Divas.  She has been named All American on 7 occasions and has won 2 National Championships.
