In 2015, Jen Welter made history becoming the first female to hold a coaching position in the NFL.. Once again, she has cemented herself in history, becoming the first female head coach in Madden.
"For the first time in Madden history, a woman is on the sidelines leading a team," according to the developers of Madden NFL 20.
Welter is featured in the game's new Superstar KO mode, a brand new, online eliminator mode for Madden NFL 20. In a deep-dive discussion about the new mode on the EA Sports website, the developers note that the new mode is "a celebration of football, a game that combines Superstar X-Factors, custom rules, and unique teams with a new, unique stadium and commentary style to provide a brand-new play experience you can't get anywhere else."
Players will have the opportunity to select Welter's Shutdown team in the new Superstar KO mode.
