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."

Only if she paid me, she can afford it.

She's gay anyway. I think Gail is her girlfriend.

I doubt Stedman ever tapped it.

But by minority candidate they mean Black. You don't ever hear ESPN bitching because a man who is Chinese wasn't interviewed. I think forcing teams to act based on race is apart of the problem, not the solution. It couldn't be that Lovie Smith, or Ray Horton, weren't hired because they're defensive coaches and all the teams were looking for offensive minded coaches.... no, couldn't be that.

I think the nfl, the coaches, the owners, and the players union are sexist. After all this is the new America and there should be at least 2 women starting on every team. This cannot be ignored any longer.
I feel age discrimination is at play here too; each team shall have two children between the ages of 14-17 on the team for every play as well.

Pipe dream. Never happen.

And any minority that begins to see through all this Democrat oppression , use and abuse of minorities and decides to escape that progressive plantation is vilified !!

I get your point and totally agree, but no way in hell they give up that kind of leverage especially when you have the majority of the press in your pocket who will be your pit bulls on call at any moment.

Political Correctness in the NFL ! Don't ya love 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?

There are only 32 head coaching jobs.
There are only 32 GM jobs.

It's not going to be representative of anything because its too small of a club.

The NFL should instead celebrate that one of its best coaches is black (Tomlin).

The NFL should celebrate that on of its best general managers is black (Newsome).

And tell Tony Dungy to quit bitching and start coaching if he wants more blacks roaming the sidesline. You too Herm. That dude could be a damn good coordinator but he would rather be a celebrity.

I'm so sick of this $hit.
Sick of what shit? The Rooney rule is a great rule that outlived its purpose.

I've never understood the "black people NEED easy street" logic.

Look, When blacks needed to break into athletics, it was hard. When they broke through it was the best of the best shoving racism down everyone's throat. I don't care if you point to Jackie Robinson or Warren Moon destroying the 'black guys can't play QB from the pocket" myth.

When you create a system that fast tracks unqualified people because of race, it can justify racism. The best way to end racism is by allowing black people to prove it's bullshit.
