The NFL and the Black College Football Hall of Fame will join forces to again host the Quarterback Coaching Summit.

The third annual event will take place virtually, on June 22 and 23.

“The Quarterback Summit brings together the brightest, most innovative and successful offensive minds from around the country,” NFL executive VP for football operations Troy Vincent said. “From professional development to networking to coaching best practices, this summit should leave no doubt about the promising pipeline of championship play callers within the sport of football.”

The executives involved will be Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II and Buffalo Bills owner Kim Pegula.

“We are excited to continue this partnership with the National Football League as qualified coaches and executives come together to advance their careers,” said Doug Williams, co-founder of the Black College Football Hall of Fame (BCFHOF).

Sessions will focus on building a coaching staff, QB position fundamentals, “and other best practices for career advancement.” Members of the NFL’s Workplace Diversity Committee will also take part in the event.

This year’s event is especially timely as the NFL has taken some action to address the league’s paltry record of hiring minorities to positions of power within organizations. Heading into the 2020 season, of the 64 head coaches and offensive coordinators within the NFL, only five are black.
