Yet six black head coaches in Division I-A out of 119 teams. That's a very telling stat.
well i agree with you Severn, it is a stat. Stats change every second however. IMO, as time goes on and more and more minorities get into coaching, the more minority coaches there will be. The fact of the matter is that there are way more caucasion coaching candidates compared to minority coaching candidates. once THAT field is leveled out, there will be more of an even ratio. you cant expect an even reation of coaches to minority coaches when there are only 2 to 3 black coaches for every 10 white coaches.
i think that the coaching situation is right in major sports, you just have to lood at the availability of one race to the other.
like i said, quanity brings quality. there are more white coaches than black. there are more unquality white coaches available than unquality black coaches. if we see more minority coaches, we'll see more permanent minority coaches.
