Ziggy Hood named Washington 2020 Bill Walsh diversity coaching fellow

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Football Team announced today that former DL Ziggy Hood has been selected as the team’s only Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship recipient. Hood will primarily work with the strength and conditioning staff during training camp.

Hood was selected in the first round (No. 32 overall) by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2009 NFL Draft. Hood played in 10 total seasons in the NFL, including three with Washington (2016-18). He finished his career appearing in 142 games with 73 starts and registered 231 tackles (141 solo), 14.0 sacks, 21 tackles for loss and five fumble recoveries.

Hood appeared in four postseason games in his career, including Super Bowl XLV. He finished his postseason career having played in four games with three starts and registering 14 tackles (12 solo), 2.0 sacks and two tackles for loss.

Established in 1987, the Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship provides NFL coaching experience to a diverse group of participants every year. The program is named after the man who conceived the idea – late Pro Football Hall of Fame head coach Bill Walsh – and exposes talented minority college coaches, high school coaches and former players to the methods and philosophies of NFL coaching staffs. Walsh introduced the concept to the league in 1987 when he brought a group of minority coaches into his San Francisco 49ers’ training camp.

The program has tutored over 2,000 minority coaches through the years and has grown to the point that every NFL team participates during offseason workout programs, minicamps and/or training camp.
