Wooten: KC has interviewed minority candidates
Associated Press - February 5, 2009 3:44 PM ET

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance says that if the Kansas City Chiefs do not name a minority as their next head coach, it won't be because they failed to follow the Rooney Rule.

FPA chairman John Wooten told The Associated Press on Thursday that he's been distressed to hear that Kansas City has not talked with any black candidates.

Wooten said he personally knows of several minorities who have interviewed with Scott Pioli, the Chiefs' new general manager. Wooten declined to identify them.

Pioli fired coach Herm Edwards last month and immediately began his search for a new head coach.

.
On March 10, 2003, the Fritz Pollard Alliance was formed as an affinity group of NFL minority coaches, scouts and front office personnel. During the last couple of years the FPA has worked with the NFL to develop hiring guidelines for front office and scouting positions as well as talent development programs. The FPA advocates for policy changes in the NFL hiring practices and working in partnership with the NFL to create opportunities for minority candidates.

It's either the media isn't really giving a flying doody about the Chiefs or Clark and Scott are doing a heck of a job disguising everything.

And so was everyone else. Anyone that thought the Chiefs wasn't going to interview a minority candidate is brain dead

Well, if this had been a quote from Clark during an interview last Saturday saying that the Chiefs had met the Rooney Rule, then yes.

But it's not, so no.

Valiant effort, however ...

I still think Leslie Frazier would make just as good if not a better HC than Haley.

Ah well.

Nope. Unless his backtracking over at WPI and his comment on Frazier were all part of his clever ruse...

You do realize this backs up what was reported already... the Chiefs did NOT interview Frazier...

And if he knew about other candidates, why the backtracking...

You are looking the fool with this comment...

Apologies if the comment was meant to be a joke (like your boss)

They must care. Everyday they throw out two or three new theories on who our HC's gonna be.
