    If that owner wants to hire his limo driver to coach his team that's his business. There is no evidence, none, that this coaching change was racially motivated. Either make a legal case and sue the guy or shut up about it. You don't go off like those people up there unless you have decent evidence. All that is up there is speculation...total b.s.

All the African American coach’s that got fired this year all had terrible records. Steve wilks was the only person that got so called black balled but maybe you should put a fire under the cardinals owners ass. Not a whole race.

    i dont really understand the whole black coaches thing, if 5 out of 32 coaches are black that means 15% of the coaches are black in a country where black people make up 12% of the population. i feel like thats normal. Now i dont know what the numbers are for all coaches in the nfl but there is no abnormal disparity in head coaches.

    BUT I BET, IF A BLACK COLLEGE COACH WAS HIRED, SAS WOULDNT HAVE MUCH OF A PROBLEM WITH IT. LIKE IF A FEW YEARS AGO KEVIN SUMLIN WAS GIVEN AN NFL COACHING JOB, SAS WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE, IM SO PROUD. Maybe it needs to be asked, why arent there many black QB coaches? bc that is usually how it seems to work. QB coach moves up to OC, then HC. We keep seeing plenty of black collegiate QBs, if they flake out in the NFL, why dont they pursue coaching??? Seems that white QBs do, so why dont black QBs? RG3 is still trying to play in the NFL, but he ran quite a system at Baylor, learned some from Shanahan. He could be learning to become a QB coach someday soon. What these black analysts and commentators need to really push is to why not former black QBs are not trying to get into coaching???? Are they trying and not getting the opportunities, or are they just not going after them??? Look at Kingsbury and LaFleur. both tried the NFL, neither had any success. What did Kingsbury do? he went back to college, TT, and started there. LaFleur started as a QB coach, learned under Shanahan, McVay, just was an OC with TITANs.

  • Vijay Swearingen

    The fact of the matter is NFL owners feel more comfortable hiring their white counterparts, over any racial alternative. That's their prerogative and their right because it's earned in a country that idolizes wealth & material things and is run by boardrooms. Max makes a great point about the "pipeline" not being there for black coaches being the new offensive innovators vs defensive coaching candidates. New offense playcaller/coordinators are the current flavor of the month. In time, defensive head coach hires may become a priority but likely not because Championships are won with an offensive head coach's mind meshing with a QB's mind and NFL QBs are the premier, rare athletes of today.

    Texas Tech is a hard school to recruit to. Lincoln Riley isn’t a better coach in the big 12 than Kingsberry, he just wound up in a very favorable situation. Texas Tech is a hard place to recruit to and by comparison recruiting to OU is easy. Why did LR get the job at Oklahoma as an OC, because they were looking for the next Kliff Kingsberry.

And then non-black around them participate in this sickness...knowing full well that they own teams. But that African man chooses to be victim instead of fighting the good fight. Own a football team and stop it.

    Stephen needs to stop pulling Africa-American's aren't respected in sports. They get paid millions of dollars to play a 3hr game. They also get paid to sit on the sideline like Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell.
    I understand Kapernick's situation. It's his right to sit during the national anthem. Kap doesn't have a job right now because of his views.
    For the people who are going to react negatively about my view on Kap. It's not only African-American people kneeling during the anthem it's white people too.

    Well you look at the black quarterbacks and black head coaches I think Mike tomlin's done a hell of a job Todd Bowles is a good defensive coach Jon Gruden is known for winning a Superbowl with Tony dungy's team and Tony Dungy went and won a Superbowl with Indianapolis Patrick Mahomes is biracial probably in MVP Michael Vick the most electrifying quarterback ever Russell Wilson Super Bowl winning quarterback Dak Prescott one of the most successful quarterbacks in his first two seasons so yeah I think it's time black people get more opportunities and head coaching management positions and ownership positions is quite obvious we know what the hell we're doing

    Only racists care about the color of someone's skin. On the espn app right now there are several articles in which black writers say they want more black head coaches. They want more people hired for no other reason than the color of their skin. I find it interesting that their idea of equal would be a league in which the majority of coaches are black and the majority of players are black. Caring about some people more than others simply because they share your skin color is the very definition of racism. Shame on you

    Some black people's lives are so deeply indoctrinated with American culture that is makes them uncomfortable to continue to bring up the issues with race in our society. I may not agree with everything Stephen A says but Im not gonna shit on what he is saying because bringing up race is always valid. We all know that Stephen A is not the most qualified black man in America to talk about race, you know who else knows that? Disney. But we don't want to read between the lines and realize Disney is using Stephen A to divide black people further, we just want to hold Stephen A accountable for bringing up race, the producers tell them what to talk about and what angles to take. When are all of you stupid motherfuckers going to exercise some critical thinking?

    This was a bad hire as the Cardinals are total dumbasses. With that said the coaches that got fired deserved it. Hue Jackson is arguably the worst head coach in NFL history, Steve Wilks and Vance Joseph had no business being head coaches in the first place. I feel Todd Bowles is good coach and deserves another shot down the road.

His offense was even worse. He took an 8-8 competitive team and turned them into trash. Please justify keeping him due to race. Drug test these fools

    Truth is nobody wants to hire a black coach because they don’t want to be called racist by the racist media if they don’t do a good job and have to fire them. The black head coaches that were fired had a winning percentage of 43 percent, the white head coaches fired had a winning percentage of 56 percent. The real question is WHY ARE WHITE HEAD COACHES HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD. And I already answered that, because owners and GMs really don’t want to have to fire black HC out of fear of being called racist. Now they aren’t hiring them for that same reason. How many non-Jewish white men work at ESPN ? If you were really worried about inequality maybe start there.
