She will be the first female to coach in a Super Bowl, as the 49ers take on the Chiefs next month.
Sowers shared a video from the on-field celebration as San Francisco basked in its 37-20 victory over the Packers:
The 33-year-old joined the team in 2017 as a seasonal offensive assistant, becoming the second woman to serve in a full-time coaching role in the NFL. Kathryn Smith was the first when the Buffalo Bills hired her in 2016.
