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."

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.

Do we really think the NFL is keeping the black coach down?

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.
Who could be a good coordinator?

Herm?

Herm didn't want to be a coordinator because he doesn't know how. He's not a play caller. He's a fraud.

I remember people complaining about how Art Shell deserved a head coaching job around 20+ years ago. He was a good cordinator but not a good head coach. The end.

Maybe the NFL should just pay reparations to every black coach in America so we can stop looking backwards all the time and instead look to the future...

The problem in the NFL isn't race, its a lack of quality coaching. The disparity in football lies between the teams that can pay big bucks for a coach and those who can't. The real problem is in college football where some schools can pay coaches competitive wages with the NFL and those who can't.

The comparison I always make is... Imagine a black student ten times more qualified than you didn't get into Harvard. He gets denied by jobs because of race.

20 years later, your resume is 20 times better. And it's not because you're smarter or more qualified. That's the heart of the Rooney rule. Again I think it's out served its purpose and I hate that the NFL would mandate hirings. But the Rooney rule was a great one early on.

The only adjustment needed is to get rid of it. The Rooney Rule does a disservice to black coaches (who are 99.9% of the time interviewed just to fill a quota instead of being given a serious look) and wastes everyone's time.

I think the Redskins and the Chiefs should be required to interview Native American coaches...

I think teams should be required to bring in white wide recievers and running backs.
