To update on a past AG article concerning head coaching hires, ESPN has put together a slew of resources to illustrate just how badly the NFL messed this one up. With the Bills latest hiring only the Raiders remain without a headcoach. There were 9 NFL head coaching vacancies this offseason, 8 have been filled with 7 first-time coaches and one so-called "retread." Of the eight hires, none was a minority. We shall see what Oakland does, but even 1/9 if it were to happen is pretty sorry given that 65% of the league is black.

Minority candidate pool runs deep by ESPN
Great article displaying all the qualified minority canidates that were passed over by NFL teams.
