San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York sat down with Colleen Wolfe of NFL Network ahead of Super Bowl LIV Opening Night in Miami on Monday and was asked about Katie Sowers. The 49ers' offensive assistant is the first woman and first openly gay coach to participate in a Super Bowl.

But the diversity on the 49ers staff is not just limited to Sowers, explains the team's CEO.

"I think a lot of that goes to Kyle (Shanahan), where he wants to make sure that there are diverse coaches on our staff," York told Wolfe. "And you look at our coordinators; we have three minority coordinators, you've got Katie who's out there, and it sends a message to everybody that you can maybe look different than what the normal makeup of a coach is.

"And Katie, especially, she works so hard, and she's been such a great part of our team. It's inspirational to see that a young lady can come in and step up and be the first woman to stand on the field during the Super Bowl."

The 49ers are scheduled to kick off their media session tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET (6:00 p.m. PT). They will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, February 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
