The NFL has opened the application process for the Bill Walsh Minority Fellowship program for the 2020 cycle.

Each of the NFL’s 32 clubs participates in the program, which aims to provide on-the-job training for minorities over the course of the off-season program.

Though the league does not place hard parameters on each team’s program, the NFL encourages teams to hire fellows through the duration of training camp and the preseason and, in the spirit of the program’s namesake, hire at least two fellows with an offensive coaching background.

To be considered, applicants must be a former NFL player or have coaching experience at the high school level or above.

This is in addition to the new year-long fellowship program the NFL launched last month. We’re told one of those hires is Akron defensive quality control coach Jett Modkins, who will spend the year working with Denver Broncos wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni.
