Why won't NFL teams hire minority coaches?

"Three head. Coaching spots have been filled this week. But none of those. Three coaches were minorities while the Rooney rule has been followed. Some are beginning to believe that minority forty candidates are not being taken seriously for the open jobs and anonymous African American. NFL Assistant Coach said that the League has quote finally shown. It's not the place as for black men to advance. It's ridiculous it's disgusting. We can sell tickets and make plays but we can't lead Shannon. Why isn't the Rooney rule role working? Well I think until skip this diversity thing yeah. Diversity is a great great to talk about but until you get someone the leadership position that says you know what. I don't just want to talk about it. I want to be about it so until you get older ships that actually wants to put some substance to this and this is what that you're GonNa get now if the general manager there's one general manager that's what minority and that's CR- Chris greer in Miami. There's zero owners that are it shouldn't say minorities. I guess because shot con radically a minority. But when you get the gist of what I what. I'm trying to say until leadership gets more diverse. You're I'm not gonNA have a more diverse hiring background skills. This was puzzling to be. Is that Eric. Enemy has the exact Zac job that Matt Nagy had negative and call plays any recall. Please man they can get the job. Doug Peterson sedinko plays true. Recall to play around Rivera's on but Ron Rivera was not the defensive coordinator in Philly. He he became a D. coordinator what's he got to the D. Coordinator in Chicago. You are you in San Diego. Yeah but he got his getting these enter coaching tree. Eric B enemy has the exact same job. That Matt Nagy Doug Peterson has and he's not getting opportunity is spirit but this. I don't really think that they go into it. Unless you incentivize this. Okay if you how minorities kill we maybe you have an extra three to five five dollars and cap space. That's the only thing that resonates with these owners because I get it skipped if I spent three billion. Let's just say I spent three billion dollars for a restaurant run. You Go tell me what the hell I need to cook. Cook whatever I WanNa Cook it there. And that's how they look at it. Jerry Jones spent money for this. This this mind you oh tell me why should get killed but but this notion that Oh and they brought Muhiba Marvin Marvin Lewis. He brought him in to to do that. Situation wasted the same with the giants the giants they had irebi enemy. They what Joe Judge Chris Rashard Rashard. Excuse me Chris Restoring. Yeah so now. Now we're down to one. Vacant Cleveland Reunion. I'm talking about how good already know. Angle get no frills JAYCO network skill. He already interviewed there. So you would now now the take my name off the leader and solid rubber solid. Take my name off the list. Because he's GonNa get Mad Max two and a half years if you're lucky that seems to instead that's all Jimmy can stomach now if you look at it they keep these. You look at Mike Patton. You look at all the guys they've had and these guys have had I think. Hugh Jackson stayed the longest at two and a half years. But everybody's been two years the list huge only two and a half two and a half long but you get you get these other guys you get pretty kitchens and you look at patent and you look at a I forget. Just give all these one year jazz. WE ACHE AAC CLEVELAND. That in Cleveland of the North this skill ruining rules a joke. I get it. You know minorities Cadillac. An affirmative action thanksgiving. Yeah but in -firmative action. I guess it's federal dollars. You'RE NOT GONNA get the money if you don't do this. The NFL is a is a private entity. So what can you do. What Ki- what can you give? Nfl Do not the so. I have been tracking this for a long time because one of my best friends is John. Wooten who is now the retired leader of the Fritz Pollard. Alliance and he was the driving force behind instituting the Rooney rule as I hiring practice in the national shirow all league and John's point from the start was I just need interviews because if a young assistant coach gets interviewed a couple of times times it gets reported in his name gets out there and if another owner sees that name enough over maybe a couple of years hiring cycles else maybe an owner says chee that guy. He's getting a lot of interviews. Maybe I should bring in. Maybe I should be more open minded to him. But if you're GONNA curse because if I get a a lot of interviews and I'm not getting hired was wrong why here the me getting hired cave liability with that. But John's point in the end was I'd rather have interviews than not have interests. Okay okay so let's go back to the stat that I use last week. The Institute of Diversity and Ethics In sports twenty nine thousand nine racial and gender report card for the National Football Bali. The League got actually an a plus for hiring of color. Assistant coaches right a sit a plot. Oh that's progress right. It got a deep loss for hiring head coach of Color White eight-plus assistance d-plus head head coaches. There's a big disconnect there and it shows you. That owners are fine. Oh hire two or three black assistant fine with that but nope nope. I don't want to head coach to be black. Right gives quite to the restaurant you can cook. You'll be in the bank but Michelle not the bridge. I roll up now okay so when I texted back and forth last we can use this last week of John Wooten just beside himself now. He is devastated by this this development his point was that only one. GM Chris Grin Miami. Point out is use. John's word heartbreaking because it could start with the GM right a black GM of or of color could be more open minded to say to the owner. Hey listen this guy is really bring him in. Let me let me introduce him to you right. The conduit to the owner can be stronger. Iran have I don't know six or eight black. GM right right. We've had them around the league four or but all of a sudden there's a dearth to rape Barma with Barma within Cleveland. He'd Gone Rick Smith who I know very well be in Denver. He interviewed for The Washington. Ashington John Daniel Snyder said head coach could be a head coach. Basically general manager after the Washington like who are the head coaching after the draft. The General Mattis. Okay so sometimes there is group think or shink sheep among the owners because in the end they do want to win right. And if they're looking around the League league and that black head coaches really successful they say well I want one of those. I want to go that direction right well. There was one black head coach who started to have success late in the year ear and he happened to be allied with Chris. Clear in Miami and Brian Floors off the Patriots. Well they started out all time badge for about what seven seven games fifty. Nine seven opening renders and then they basically it felt like they turned the whole roster iside down which they needed to do and then all of a sudden the last nine games they go five and four they upset the eagles and then they went to foxborough and just basically ended the season. I thought for the new New England Patriots playoff teams right. Okay so all the sudden Brian floor floor with the help of Chris greer. They're having big success. It looks like it's headed in the right drug us us but it wasn't enough of a splash to create momentum through the hiring process and right because John Wooden again texted me back with so many names he said we have so many in the pipeline. Who already started with Eric? B Enemy and Chris Rock. I think Chris Shaw Bad Year on defense but when I watch him interviewed when I watch his body language. It's a stunt man he's he's got. CEO Written all over him. He looks like a commanding officer to me. There's not enough black head coaches skip. Because because you look you look at Mike McCarthy guest job he hires the guy that gave him his opportunity coordinator fifteen years ago so you see the circle. We'll skip once you become a head coach. What do you do you go to the combine? You go to say elbow you got your drake. He goes to the coaches meeting and Yada Yada Yada and to connect with the boom boom boom right right. So if I'm not in that Lou. How do I get into loops? Because a rid of staff they said eighty percent of the jobs are never posted so in other worth people get hired somebody a friend or family member is not what you know who you know There in live the roof. It does house so to finish John. Bruton's list of pipeline candidates being AMEE. Chris Rashard Robert Sala. He threw Jim Caldwell on his list. Is Jim Colwell was highly successful zestful. Jim called wheel lost his jaw. Going nine and seven in two years Matt Patricia has nine total win and he's still got a job now he goldwell still doesn't have another job he in four years. He went to the playoffs twice in the last year he went nine and seven and they said well you know we need to move in a different direction. uh-huh and the guy that's replaced has yet to win nine total games in two years. Do you still own a still on the clock. Okay Steve wilks got one shot in time. I'm one year in Arizona and he was gone. He's now the defensive coordinator in Cleveland which probably didn't help his cause this year that much but I don't hear his name no in Cleveland right right on the list. And then there's Terrel Austin who's young stripes potential star coach and John Wootton into his list with Marvin Lewis who he thinks deserves a second shy right. Okay so Jerry. Jones did observe in qualified for the Rooney rule by bringing in. I Marvin Lewis. I think Jerry was shrewd operating waiting there. Because he didn't pick a young like like Chris Rashard type interview him because of Jerry had interviewed a young potential upcoming head. Black coach right. There's more pressure on Jerry. What was wrong with right? What's the problem exactly? He went to Marvin Lewis because he thinks Marvin Lewis is kind of old news right right. He got his longtime time shot in Cincinnati. Listen I still think Marvin did a good job job seriously. Yes okay he went. Oh and seven in the playoffs but still it was Andy Dalton Alton you re you with covering the NFL and you remember what Cincinnati before. Marlene got there was John. Carter number one overall. You Got David Cleland with the fourth. The fourth picket. You got big day to day and Wilkerson purse around the second pick in the draft year after year after a year people. Forget what I know. Marvin didn't win a playoff game. But they weren't even getting close to the playoffs for Marvin got there. No so I was disappointed in Jerry because you know my heart Hartz. I'd love to see Jerry Jones higher black head coach and I think I probably won't live long enough or Jerry will live long enough to know.

"Hey coaches and one minority general manager explain that, listen, the Fritz Pollard alliance overseas, kind of diversity or certainly interacts with the league they're not asking for gifts and asking for guys who haven't earned an opportunity there. They know that also. Oh, you're accountable for your wins and losses whether asking for equal opportunity, and in the case of Steve Wilks, you could say even Vance Joseph was those equal opportunities and the other problem and Louis probably should speak to this is what about the front office. Yeah. Yeah. It's. It's obviously the statistics bear out. The fact that it's an issue. It's a problem, and then you kind of go, well, how can you correct? The problem and many of talked about the fact that are minorities being put in positions at the lower ranks in order to ascend to those positions where owners and search firms look for potential head coach and GM candidates. How many director of player personnel? How many president of player personnel minorities? Are there? How many offense a coordinators are there that are minorities? How many quarterback coaches are there that are minorities not very many? And now why why are they being directed to other positions? Are they not? I mean, what are the reasons? Okay. Let's put it this way. One of the reasons why they're not being put in those positions. It's hard. Okay. And I don't mean to cut out trade. It's okay. It's hard to tell ownership who to hire. Okay. It is you can't force them to hire minorities. But what needs to happen? Like, I said at the grassroots level so to speak of scouting in or coaching as that minorities have to be encouraged and have to. Be allowed to be put in a position to earn those positions from which you can then send into these prominent positions. I let me let me ask you a question as a guy who has been through the interview cycle the last few years with several teams. That's not a secret that's been out there, sir. How did you feel like your position as a guy who's been on the field has been in a front office and has done a great job for us like call Jared Goff in the Rams last year called Patrick Mahomes this year, sir? How did you feel? You're interviewing process went in terms of whether it was real or not I had no issues with it. And not tell you what in particular. I will tell you this. And I told many people this when I came back from the giants interview with Mr. mar Mr. Tisch, in of course, who were all sitting in there at the time that was as good of a conversation about football as I have had ever in my life with people who are making decisions about organizations in the NFL. And I thought it was fair. It was open. It was honest. There were things that I said that I'm sure we're things that maybe they didn't expect to. Here as far as how I felt about their football team in directions that I would have gone with it. But Mr. Mara was always very open, and very honest, and very like receiving of ideas, and he wanted to have more conversation. There are many times where we one on one. It was like we were only people in the room, and then we went downstairs and had lunch. And we talked a little bit more about the team about how he envisioned his football team. Getting better we talked about big picture NFL issues about challenges that the legal say it to me. Like, I said it was one of the best interviews and one of the best conversations I've ever had when I walked out of their trained, drove home that night. I felt if that if that is that right there, if everyone is experiencing the interview process that way that I have no issue was that we certainly hope that is the case going forward..

"Former bills general manager now you say oh okay that's interesting doug ueli he wasn't very good at his job god's he's a minority and apparently according to the nfl that satisfy the rule now i'm not here to tell you that i know for sure that it wasn't a sham in our view i'm not here to tell you that i know for sure that their search was conducted totally and completely honestly and the way you would normally and ideally conduct research but i believe aid the browns were nervous about dorsey get the giants job one apparently from hartford or something like that and chew here's the one thing that i would say the front's pollard alliance who's done a lot of good things to raise equity i mean equality and to raise awareness for minorities and to promote minorities four consideration head coach vice presidents general managers that type of thing coordinators they do a good job they're doing what they're supposed to do however they jump the gun on this they jump the gun on this in my opinion i mean dorsey was hired again by eight hours after sashi brown was fired the process had been done the process has been satisfied the browns know that they're going to get whacked if they fall if they don't follow the rudy ruled right so they had to provide some sort of documentation verification maybe even doug willie himself confirmed to the nfl that's what i would assume would happen hey yeah i met with them to interview we met for six hours we had a nice dinner had a good stake we talked about football and they hired somebody else but here's the problem that i had with the fritz pollard alliance in this particular case and anybody that squawking about the rulli rule violation again number one we don't know all the facts again we'll take the browns i guess and the nfl at their word that dog wailing was interviewed and it was a legitimate interview i don't know you don't know they don't know but to come out level a charge essentially of racism before we even know the details is a little bit bothersome to me quite honestly because that's what the fritz followed alliance essential he's doing whenever they come out a hammer team here's the other thing and this is.

"Who broke through mmhmm he was on the cover of time magazine so i'm asked this question again because a guy you know very well close friend of mine john wooten fritz pollard alliance head of the fritz paul lines that oversees the rooney rule for the national football league continues to ask me and others in the media why didn't colin speak up some time in training camp may be weak one this year why did he make a public statement because i've tried to scour the internet i'm pretty sure the last time collins spoke publicly was after his final game that he played last year on january first for the san francisco forty nine he played pretty well in that game they lost barely 25 to 2003 to seattle numbers were pretty good net game he went seventeen a 22 for to fifteen ran fivetimes for sixteen yards but but they hung right in it was close game gamed then so that was it that was the end of colin kaepernick as we knew him as an nfl quarterback it's a long time ago yes and he spoke briefly after that game just about the game and i'm pretty sure even though he released a statement i'm losing track when it was three months ago maybe that i will stand for the anthem this year grit but he has not spoken publicly so i ask you do you think that would have helped see john thinks that you you gave the nfl an excuse because all john here's what he makes calls to teams what's wrong collins happening.
