When Ashley Gardner heard about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts having an all-women management team, she thought the news was unprecedented.

“Women have remained underrepresented in sport leadership for a long time, so Jalen Hurts deciding to bet on women with his all-women team is really unprecedented,” said Gardner, who is an assistant professor at Temple University’s School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management. “His decision has created another legacy off the field for these women.”
