Jonathan Webster Selected For NFL Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship

Northwest Mississippi Community College assistant football coach Jonathan Webster has been chosen as a participant for the 2017 NFL Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship.

Webster has been assigned to the defending NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons’ training camp, which begins Tuesday in Atlanta. He’ll be with the team from July 25 until their first preseason game at Miami on August 10.
“This is an opportunity for me to become a better position coach and help Northwest become a better team,” Webster said. “Whether that’s defensively, on special teams or even day-to-day operations, I’m just looking to bring anything back to Senatobia I can.”
Webster’s duties in Atlanta will revolve around numerous defensive positions, while he’ll also help with film cut-up and breakdown and also hopes to work directly with head coach Dan Quinn.
“It’s going to be 24/7 football,” Webster said. “They’re all going to be getting ready for the season and the things that I will be doing is not only preparing during training camp, but also to get them ready for the first few games of the season. This is going to be another great opportunity for me.”
This is Webster’s second NFL training camp as part of the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship, also working with the San Diego Chargers in 2014. He worked specifically with special teams and was on the field for the Chargers’ 27-7 preseason win over the Dallas Cowboys.
The NFL Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship is proud to celebrate 30 years of helping outstanding coaches gain exposure to NFL training camps and offseason workout programs. The program’s objective is to use NFL clubs’ training camps, offseason workout program and mini-camps to give talented coaches opportunities to observe, participate, gain experience and ultimately gain a full-time NFL coaching position.
Designed as a vocational tool to increase the number of full-time NFL minority coaches, all 32 NFL clubs participate each year. Specific aspects of the program — including hiring, compensation and coaching duties — are administered on a club-by-club basis.
Webster will enter his fourth season as the Rangers’ defensive backs coach in 2017. In his first three seasons with Northwest, Webster’s stingy secondary has combined to pick off 35 passes in addition to 97 breakups, 16 forced fumbles and six blocked kicks. Kaleb Chalmers’ 13 breakups and Tito Windham’s 10 both ranked in the top 15 in the country nationally last season.
Eleven of Webster’s former players at Northwest have gone on to sign scholarships to compete at the next level, including five Division I signees in 2016 in Kaleb Chalmers (South Carolina), All-American Tito Windham (Memphis), Fred Garth Jr. (Bowling Green), Wesley Bush (Middle Tennessee State) and K.T. McCollin (Southeast Missouri). All-American Treston DeCoud (Oregon State/Houston Texans), Tino Thomas Jr. (Texas Southern), Brandon Mack (Southeast Missouri), Marcel Newson (Mississippi College/Pittsburgh Steelers), Steven Bradley (Mississippi College) and Javonta Woods (Univ. of the Cumberlands) have also inked with four-year schools.
Webster played collegiately for Northwest under Bobby Franklin in 2003-04 and finished his career at Arkansas Tech. He had over 230 career tackles and 30 breakups.
