She will be joining Michigan football in a graduate assistant role where she will coach the quarterbacks starting on June 1. She also played women’s college basketball for Boston College and Georgetown (2017-2021) and averaged 12.6 points per game in her final season with the Hoyas after starting in all 29 games. Growing up, Bolden-Morris also played softball and flag football.
Here is what she said after being asked how her experience playing a lot of different sports can be transferred over to the football field:
“I’m so blessed in that I played multiple sports growing up,” said Bolden-Morris. “Because my IQ in everything that I played was always so high. Playing catcher, I had to call pitches some games. I had to situational stuff. Then in basketball, the same thing happened. I had to know the time, the score, how many timeouts. Now football, with having to read defenses. The coverages and stuff like that will help us get an advantage.”
“I think that everything I’ve done so far in sports has played a role in the way that I understand it.” @_milan23_ is @UMichFootball‘s newest Coach and the first female GA Coach in in Big Ten Football history.

Lastly, she talked about how her time in sports has helped with this job with Michigan football.
“It just gives me a different perspective in the way that I conceptualize things,” said Bolden-Morris. “Being able to translate all that is really cool, and has been a huge asset to everything that I’ve done in my life.”
