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

Can you even imagine someone complaining that there aren't enough white players? Think of the coaches that are white, but why do all the good players gotta be black?

Or not enough white RB's?


It is just as stupid.

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.
Let me clarify. The Rooney rule was put in place because black assistant coaches were blacklisted for years. They weren't getting assistant coming jobs they deserved because of ctheir skin color. And t weren't getting job interviews. Even unbelievably qualified assistants like Dungy. He Rooney Le helped accelerate the balance. And it isn't like affirmative action because here is no quota. It's just an interview not a mandatory hire. For those who hate the Rooney rule take a look at college football where almost every head coach is white. Or nfl front offices. And no, just because David Shaw and ozzie Newsome exist doesn't mean there is Bala ce.

Bullshit. Should we make requirements that you must work out at least one white guy for all skill positions before acquiring new players as well?

We're white players ever blacklisted because of skin color? They were blacklisted because they weren't talented.

The Rooney rule was put in place because of discriminatory practices of the 70s and 80s.

Bottom Line a NFL Owner would hire a guy off the street if he thought they could win.

But they often hire from their network. 10 years ago, they were all white people. Tomlin would never get a head coch position and the dc would have taken ten years longer for him to get.

After the Rooney rule. I don't understand the debate. Black coaches aren't getting college jobs. The NFL has had a ton. The rule has worked. And again, nobody forced these gms to hire black coaches. Just to interview them.
