Mallory Pugh is currently an American football player who usually plays as a wide forward for the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women's Soccer League. She was chosen in the third round (instead of the fourth round) of the NFL draft by the Chicago Bears. She has yet to sign a contract with the club. She was a name brought up early in the 2021 drafts by the New York Giants and Houston Texans but ultimately signed with the Chicago Red Stars.
Pugh was born in Carbondale, Illinois, daughter of a French Canadian father and a Maryland American mother. Mallory is described as being an athletic “wide receiver” at the high school level. She was a starter her sophomore and junior season but redshirted as a senior. During her two years at Carbondale, she played both offense and defense and was also a nose tackle. While at the college, she became interested in sports and medicine and attended a number of colleges and universities. Mallory ultimately chose to attend De Montfort University in Scotland where she became a member of the athletic staff as a physiotherapist, dietitian, trainer, and physical education teacher.
As she grew older, she pursued her degree in exercise science and began working as a nurse in a hospital. During this time, she became interested in coaching youth football and began working as an assistant coach at the High School and eventually the College. The responsibilities didn't end there, though. She coached the women's swim team for two years before taking on a leadership role in the women's soccer department. After three more years as an assistant to the athletic director at the university, Mallory was promoted to become the head football coach at De La Salle.
Mallory is originally from Maryland but now lives in California. She began her playing football at a very young age in High School but did not make any appearances on the field as a senior. Instead, she excelled in the classroom where she earned a degree in mathematics but found herself enjoying soccer even more as her opportunities for playing on the field dried up. She earned a master's in education but never had any thoughts of a professional career.
Mallory started her career as an assistant at Bowling Green but did not get any playing time due to injuries. However, she was hired by Southern Miss University to be the strength and conditioning coach. She worked with athletes such as Brooke Lucken to help them improve their speed and endurance but the focus seemed to always be on soccer. This led to Mallory becoming a part-time coach at Alabama A&M and then at Mississippi State University before becoming the new AD at North Carolina.
Mallory has always remained focused on her football career. She is well-known for her work ethic and willingness to learn. She is very successful in getting the most out of her players. Her players will be very happy to have her as their coach because she is passionate about her profession and always wants to see her team do well. As a former Division I college star, there are a lot of expectations for Mallory Pugh but she is ready to prove that she deserves them all.
