    No disrespect intended but topics like this do far more to fuel racism then no minority coached being hired. The coaches that where hired all have proper backgrounds and experience and where hired strictly on ability and how the people they interviewed with viewed them and not skin pigmentation.

    Yeah, I should have mentioned this in the post but wasn't sure how many minorities were even interviewed but it did seem like I could think of virtually NONE!

    I guess some ppl are still just blind to it...it's how white rb/wr are viewed in the nfl..how black qbs are viewed (although they've come a long way from that)...it's how white basketball players are viewed in the nba...it's why ppl were so amazed at the Jeremy Lin story...and yes black coaches in the NFL fall under this

    and why is it a bad rule? Should the Nfl only have white coaches?

    Hilarious. I'm a 45 year old college educated white male who happens to think minority hiring in sports, and in this case the NFL specifically, comes up WAY short of where it should be.

    Easy, open your eyes. No one is saying owners are sitting back saying not to hire minority coaches. But your witnessing the affects of the generations before that DID say that. Same ones said black qbs weren't intelligent and my new fav the ones who said spread offense scramblers will never make it in the nfl.

    Whenever Stanford's coach decides to leave for the NFL, that's a sure bet minority hire.

    Mmm, but I do think someone should have hired Lovie. I'll take Lovie > Arians
    how so? plays Lovie missed the playoffs 6 straight years, thats not gonna intrigue a team

    Are there too many black players in the NFL?

    Should there be a quota that reflects society in general?

    Maybe based on the city or region that the team is located? Oakland has X % of black or white or minority citizens so the team has to have a similar % of black or white or minority players.

    What would you call the hiring practices of a company that had 60% minority "Workers" but less than 10% minorites in "Management" positions? I'd say there's some racial biased in there!

    No problem, sounds great. Management and players will reflect the community at large, at least to some % goal. So if the region has 40 % blacks there must be, as a goal, some effort for the team and coaching staff to reflect that. If the region is 95% white there must be some effort for the team to reflect that.

    I applaud you for bringing this issue to our attention!
