NFL looking to adjust Rooney Rule

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/88...sure-diversity

There has been plenty of turnover in coach and general manager positions in the NFL this offseason, but the league acknowledged Friday that teams can do better when it comes to hiring minorities.

NFL vice president of human resources Robert Gulliver said the league is looking at making adjustments to the Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview a minority before making a hire.

Of the eight new head coaches and seven general manager jobs that have been filled since the end of last offseason, none have gone to a minority. The Jets have yet to officially hire a new GM, though sources tell ESPN that it will be Seahawks executive John Idzik, who is also not a minority.

Mike Tomlin of the Steelers, Marvin Lewis of the Bengals and Leslie Frazier of the Vikings are the only black coaches among the 32 teams.

"While there has been full compliance with the interview requirements of the Rooney Rule and we wish the new head coaches and general managers much success, the hiring results this year have been unexpected and reflect a disappointing lack of diversity," Gulliver said. "The Rooney Rule has been a valuable tool in expanding diversity and inclusion in hiring practices, but there is more work to do, especially around increasing and strengthening the pipeline of diverse candidates for head coach and senior football executive positions.

"We have already started the process of developing a plan for additional steps that will better ensure more diversity and inclusion on a regular basis in our hiring results. We look forward to discussing these steps with our advisers to ensure that our employment, development and equal opportunity programs are both robust and successful."

Teams looking to hire a new HC must interview at least one minority.

It's a joke is what it is.

It's the reason you end up with people like Romeo as a HC.

I think you should get the job NO MATTER what the color of your skin is, not BECAUSE of it.

They didn't earn? They are hired on merit. I'm sorry people are putting such a fuss over a team losing a few hours of their time. The idea that gms are forced to hire anybody they dot want to hire is ridiculous.

So just break out the 'each team has to alternate between black and white head coaches' rule and be done with it.

nope
here is the answer
the will all hire a minority assistant head coach
and keep him on staff to be a place holder
talent and intelligence has no racial or sexual bias

jebus why don't they interview women too?

This is dumb. Could it possibly be because teams are looking for the coach they feel has the best chance of turning their team around regardless of his skin color? The Rooney Rule is ridiculous, almost as stupid as affirmative action. And I am black.

Yea, there seems to be a lack of good black candidates out there right now. It all runs in cycles.

I don't see a lot of Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Islander candidates out there either.
