KANSAS CITY, Mo – Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick has joined the Kansas City Chiefs staff as a coaching intern as part of the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship program.
Vick has been to the Pro Bowl four times during his 13-year NFL career. He will be working closely with the quarterbacks about development, technique, and fundamentals.
He was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison for operating an unlawful interstate dog fighting venture. He served his sentence in Leavenworth, Kansas.
The summer intern program Vick is participating in is designed to give aspiring coaches the opportunity to observe, participate, and gain experience on an NFL practice field and ultimately gain a full-time NFL coaching position.
