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."

If they are going to change anything, they need to find a way to get more minorities hired on at the start of their careers, and then make sure they have the same opportunities as their white peers to progress up the coaching ladder. I'm curious what the racial makeup is for scouting/positional coaches. If there is a relatively higher percentage there than at the top, then that is a good place to look for a way to fix things long term. JMHO
Nope. I don't find it odd.

You here to tell us that all 32 teams are run by racists?

If an owner could win the Superbowl with an asian transvestite midget coach, he would hire one.

Color doesn't matter when it comes to winning.

It is a little unfair to just look at this year and say that there is some sort of issue with the amount of minority coaches in the nfl. The current number does not reflect the unfair hiring practices of the NFL teams but lack of production of 4-5 black head coaches the past couple of years. I think there were about 25% of minority head coaches in the NFL last year but several black coaches were fired for valid reasons. I think this year is just a bump in the road for minority coaching. I see more and more black coaches coming through the ranks and it is only a matter of time before some of them are deemed ready to be the head coach. I don't think this has anything minority coaches being overlooked.

The Chiefs interviewed a ST coach who had no shot. I don't think anyone really considered hiring Lovie Smith though he interviewed with several teams. There weren't a lot of candidates out there besides Ray Horton. There certainly won't be any who get experience in college football. Its even worse there. Its going to continue until more black coaches can build a resume. How many coordinators are black?

Blame colleges for not having minority candidates for coaching.
