I'd like to see the number of black assistant coaches who actually submit resumes and show interest in head coaching jobs. In the NBA, black guys actually show interest in coaching positions. Are there an equal number of black guys and white guys interested in open NFL and college jobs? Or do black coaches not submit resumes because they feel there is no chance? If there are 10 open college coaching jobs in a given year, how many black coaches express an interest vs. how many white coaches express an interest? Wonder if those types of figures are available. Because if 10 black coaches interviewed and one white coach interviewed and the white guy got the job, perhaps there are grounds for a case if the 10 black coaches were qualified (i.e. experience, winning records, etc.). For instance, Auburn University is one that I question because the guy from Buffalo had much higher qualifications IMO.
