As more colleges across the country are confronting racial tensions on their campuses, new statistics are coming to light regarding staff members, too. The University of Central Florida’s The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport (TIDES) released a report last month, “Regression throughout Collegiate Athletic Leadership: Assessing Diversity among Campus and Conference Leaders for Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) Schools in the 2015-16 Academic Year,” that details the lack of diversity in FBS leadership positions — as well as leadership positions on FBS campuses in general.
Presidents of numerous colleges and universities — including the University of Missouri, Yale, Princeton, Amherst, and Johns Hopkins — have made recent headlines for their lack of promoting diversity and inclusion on their respective campuses. The numbers reflect even less diversity than among the head coaches in the NFL: of these head coaches, 16 percent are Black — nearly double the amount than at the college level. According to David Williams, Vanderbilt’s athletic director, the talent is there — it’s just not being utilized.
Karl Dorrell, who served as head coach at UCLA and now coaches the Jets’ wide receivers, agreed that there is definitely talent in the pipeline.
But so many coaches receive these jobs based on existing relationships — a pattern that makes the cycle that much more difficult to break.
Bernard Franklin, chief inclusion officer and executive vice president for membership and student athlete-affairs for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), admitted that this practice hinders opportunities for qualified minority coaches. For its part, the NFL has in fact taken a more forceful approach with the institution of the Rooney Rule.


For the Black coaches who do get the opportunity to serve as head coach, remaining in the field is the tough part, according to Dr.
Hill found that of the 28 Black coaches who were fired or forced to resign, all of them were succeeded by white coaches. Of the 128 head coaches in the Football Bowl Subdivision, only 11 are Black — a dismal 8.6 percent.
While it’s not comparable to the number of Black players, it was still higher than the current number and indicated a small step in the right direction.
Some people in the athletic industry believe that Blacks simply don’t receive the same opportunities as whites.
Established in 2003, the rule requires the NFL to interview minorities for head coaching and senior-level jobs. Why ain’t those micro-aggrieved whining students DEMANDING proportional racial representation on their various sports teams?
And sucker poor white folks are bamboozled into defending the plantation, even though they’ll never benefit from the system.
The program must have a proud history, a ton of exposure, and big-time recruiting advantages.


Writing, and sharing opinions, about sports is a true passion to the native of the Midwest who is often on the move.
It was the first time the teams were playing each other when they both had a Black head coach.
Lapchick has sought for the creation of a similar rule for the college head coaches but has so far been unsuccessful. Hill is the former head coach at San Jose State and, after doing extensive research on the subject, believes that Black coaches do not receive the same number of chances in their jobs as their white counterparts. There also has to be solid fan support and, in most cases, it should be located in a desirable location. The appreciation and understanding of sports has come from years spent viewing and discussing games with his father -- and continues today.
