    White people are blind and naive to anybody but themselves. Most of the players in the nfl are black for a reason. They’re better. Faster, stronger etc etc. they have no choice. Literally. The players are too good. But they do have a choice with management. and they pick and choose who they want in leadership position. Blacks make up most skill position coaches in the league. Blacks obviously can coach. They play the game bitch obviously they can coach it!!! But when it comes to leadership and somebody making decisions and representing the organization, they pick a white face. Even if thar person has failed numerous times and doesn’t have the most stellar resume. White people in this country make me sick 😂😂 shit be so obviously fucked up and y’all go along with it. Y’all not the ones having to coach line backers for 20 years just to get an interview. While young white coaches internship, and coach got literally a couple years then get a job I.E Sean mcvay lol. Y’all get way more opportunities because whites prefer whites like blacks prefer blacks. Shit not fair to blacks. Fucking crackas

    The stupid ass white people in this comment section is the problem with America lmao. Of course you white people wanna dislike the video and say ignorant shit. Blacks aren’t getting the same opportunity as whites. Period. How ironic that blacks make up 80 percent of the league but it’s only a couple hand coaches and 1 general manager? You think black people don’t know football?? You think them dudes ain’t retiring trying get into coaching?? While people like kliff kingsbury could have a losing big 12 record and get a job 😂😂😂. Shits ridiculous. White owners and general managers are more willing to give people that look like them opportunities. They over look black coaches. It’s hundreds of black assistant coaches with the same exact resume as a lot of these white coaches but there not getting a fair shake. If you watch a nfl game and check the sidelines most the position coaches are black. How ironic 😂😂 fuck outta here. White Americans are blinded and naive and bias af

    Maybe it’s cause they make up only 13% of the population and so in that regard it should be at around an 8-1 ratio but clearly these broadcasters have their heads up their azz, or maybe the elephant in the room is blacks are more athletic so usually they just focus on playing the game were as there white counterparts are usually slower or not as fast and focus on the film room or jobs that require more thinking aka quarterbacks, kickers, coaching ect. But these pussyfooting cowards won’t speak the truth cause PC BS!

    The issue is the owners. They want white guys in front of the cameras. Not black guys that's why they don't have jobs in college or D2 & D3 some of these hires are just creating a pool of coaches that can coach different teams. Ala Gase! Some of these guys have 3 and 4 different stops yet an African American gets one shot and that's pretty much it. It's the average. Something needs to be done especially since the NFL is 78.9% black. What's the issue if it's not the owners.

  • Yohan Ds

    You’re crazy if you think the NFL cares about race. They want to win why? The money they will hire who ever they think is the best candidate. But what Espn is doing here is serving to their masses which is mainly Black males.

  • Brian R4520
    Brian R4520 6 months ago

    I'm not sure if I'm 100% correct, but the NFL is really bad at trying to get the next coach like__. For example, when Dungy and Lovie doing well. Shortly after that you saw Herm Edwards, Marvin Lewis, Hugh Jackson, Rivera, Mike Singeltary, and others get hired. There obviously is a problem in the NFL with the lack of minority coaches, but I also don't see any black offensive coordinators who are coaching unique high powered offenses or high flying dominate black coaches in college. Let me know if I'm forgetting about someone who fits that mold that the owners are looking at right now.

    Lets do some math. 13% of the population is black, 70% of the NFL players are black, 15.5% of head coaches are black.
    Now, I propose we fire at least one more black head coach and fire about 60% of all NFL players and exclusively hire Whites, Asians, and Mexicans for a while, just to make it more fair and diverse. I think everyone would agree that it would be very progressive.

    ESPN loves to stir the race pot. If the most qualified minority candidate did not get hired then I would agree that it’s a problem in that case. If the most qualified candidate did in fact get hired and they happen to be white then that is not a problem. The most qualified for the job should get it period.
    They are essentially implying without meaning to that those minorities are not good enough on their own merit and need an extra boost just to satisfy a subjective view of social justice. Or that the system is against them which I would then argue why would the oppressing system want to help them? If they want to hold you back they are not going to change things to help you out. So what is the true solution here?
    Plus when they say minority they really mean black because I’ve yet to see an ESPN show (unless I missed it but I doubt it’s happened) be up in arms because of the lack of Hispanic or Asian jobs in pro sports.
    In before hateful and ignorant comments from people who won’t understand what I’m saying here. They things they perpetuate actually hold black people back more than they help.

    The scarcity in black coaches is the same as the scarcity in white RBs... the good ones are still need development.
    The lack of black owner is the same as the lack of white DBs... not enough blacks are wealthy enough to buy a team and not enough white boys are athletic enough to be DBs... and if they are.. they stick to being WRs even if they are likely to fade into obscurity.

  • Gabriel Carrasco
    Gabriel Carrasco 6 months ago

    People need to realize it's about organizational structure and not about race. Good teams simply aren't going to can a good coach. Even if they are not a good coach as long as they are routinely getting in the playoffs those jobs aren't going to be available. So McCarthy in GB, Tomlin in Pitt, Belichek in New England, John Harbaugh in Baltimore, Pete Carroll in Seattle. Those jobs aren't open until recently in regards to McCarthy. Even middle of the road teams like Dallas, Bengals, Houston, they aren't going to fire their coaches because they are afraid of starting over. When you bring in a new coach, philosophies and schemes change. You saw in Oakland how getting Gruden transformed that roster and it's not always for the better. You may go on a 3-5 year drought of not being good, and owners aren't keen on sucking for years. And the positions that are available are typically available because the players on the team aren't very good, and impatient ownership like the Browns get rid of coaches very quickly not allowing them to install their system. So on a bad team a white coach is just as likely to get fired as a black coach if their team sucks regardless if they have good players or not. Now sure, maybe start training minority coaches more in the lower levels to take on that HC role, but it's not that teams dont' want to hire minority coaches, it's that there are only a few openings per year and coaches that get fired regardless of race are fired too quickly.

    The football hiring process is rigged in favor of whites. Virtually all of the skill positions in football are dominated by blacks because skill can rarely be manipulated. You don't need to run a 4.4 40 or jump 40 inches to throw a football. This is why white parents and coaches can put white kids at the quarterback position and disguise their discrimination under qualitative descriptors such as football intelligence, moxy and leadership. It's not any different for coaches. They put the "good ol' boys" in coaching positions because their success can easily be manipulated and lack of success can easily be excused.

    I'm all for hiring the talents for the jobs, but you can clearly see that there is a serious problem when it comes down to hiring minorities who happen to be qualified or sometimes overqualified in the world of sport, and in life overall.
    Even a blind cat can see there is a problem.

    I’ve excepted the NFL for what it is. I’m not going to stress about how many black, or Latino, coaches there are. There is no rule you can really have of making sure you have this many coaches that are black and brown. The fact of the matter is that the NFL is the the Not Fair League. But it has also been unfair to quite a bit of white coaches as well. The only difference is that the rehire rate for white coaches is higher.

And im a rams fan and i find it weird how teams are obsessed with our assistants lol, its like any young guy whos coached with mcvay or talked to mcvay is mcvay and we must hire him!

      Jacob Marchant neither does Zac Taylor. You’re making the point. Two people, both OCs, both do not call plays, but one gets a head coaching job

      Anglo American no they’re not. That can’t be proving Bc we live in a racist country. They implemented an entire rule just so organizations were forced to interview minorities lol. Like you dk what you’re talking about and have no facts just random percentages. Stop it. you can say black players are better because you can find no greater talent in the majority whites lol. You can’t say that for coaching because it can’t be proven. A little skinny white kid will never be Lebron. Athleticism, speed, strength can be measured lol. Drawing plays on a board more people can do if given the opportunity. Everyone can’t go score 40 TDS given the opportunity. You clearly never played. You’re comparing on field skill to the man who sits on the sideline and watches it happen

      Malik Will there’s no merit because the coaching positions are based on coaching talent just like your playing talent, white coaches are better 90% of the time just accept the reality

      Anglo American you missed the whole point. Their is no merit because it’s based on playing talent! Lol you made my point!! 😂. You can’t name any white players who are getting fucked out of the league but you can name black coaches and other minorities who don’t even get a chance to coach because they wanna recycle the majority coaches lol.

      Malik Will and maybe white coaches are better at coaching just like how you say black players are better at basketball. It’s not a lie it’s the truth both ways, but people gonna complain and bitch. It’s ok for 90% of nba players to be black and 80% of nfl players to be black but not ok to have white coaches cos we need to give them to “minorities” even without merit, just cos they are black.

      Zach well then he has no point. Black players are better at basketball like wtf lol. The point is coaching and higher up positions not players who are drafted based on talent. Name a white player better than those bad boys at duke? How can talent on the court be disputed? It can’t but who gets a shot at coaching talent can be a dispute.

    Maybe because, there aren't really that many minority coaches for real, I can only think of only a couple, I can only think of 2 in college.

      @Jan-Michael Vincent
      Let me educate you on how things work in the league. As a former drafted NFL player, I can tell you from my personal experience that there are coaches who have no goddamn business coaching in the league, and it's far more prevalent than you may think. I'm sure you'd like to think that the best and brightest always rise to the top, but that's just not the case. Unfortunately much of the league is on a "who you know" basis (including nepotism). And politics is rampant in the league as well. And as far as the minority issue goes, there's a reason why they implemented the Rooney Rule, because the league recognized how much of an imbalance existed between the players playing the game vs representation from the coaches on the sidelines. And to be frank, it was embarrassing enough for them to at least push for more representation when it came to minority coaches getting an opportunity to at least sit down in front of owners & top management to make a case why they should be considered for a head coaching position. And while it's gotten better, there's still more need for improvement. And finally, if you think there's a problem with the NFL hiring minority coaches in high positions, college football is straight up pathetic!

      Steven Lee well I think that’s the problem that they are talking about. What goes on “behind the scenes” is networking and who you know. So sometimes merit isn’t taken into account and historically quarterbacks were white and in some cases still are, which in turn has a trickle up effect.
