Nice Summer Job: Interning Under Chiefs Hall Of Famer Emmitt Thomas

Chris and I were joking the other day that we need to hire some interns here at Arrowhead Pride (Hey, coffee doesn't make itself). We both figured that writing about sports, specifically the Chiefs, would be a pretty cool internship.

I think I've found an internship that would top that: Interning under Chiefs Hall Of Famer and secondary coach Emmitt Thomas.

That's what James Colzie, West Georgia assistant football coach, will be doing this summer as part of the NFL’s Bill Walsh Minority Fellowship Program.

Colzie, who is entering his third season as the Wolves assistant head coach, defensive backs coach and special teams coordinator, will head to Kansas City Chiefs training camp in St. Joseph, Mo., where he’ll work with Chiefs secondary coach and Hall of Famer Emmitt Thomas, as well as renowned defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel.

Colzie will remain with the Chiefs through their first preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons on Aug. 13 at the Georgia Dome, meaning he’ll miss West Georgia’s first week of preseason practice.

I'd imagine you'd have a hard time beating that internship.
