its a waste.the only reason you are interviewing that person bc they are not white.usually teams know who they want, and go get that person.it is a bullshit rule saying we are not going to hire you, but you can be our minority in for an interview.

It's not like they're setting hiring quotas.

There are more black coaches working in the league now since the rule was implemented. That's a good thing, and that's what they intended. Equal opportunity, and it's working.

Now, if some team has their heart set on a particular candidate - for whatever reason - who's to tell them they can't hire the guy they want, regardless of what color he is?

Forcing a business to consider people dependent on their skin color isn't equal opportunity.

If the Vikings decide to hire Frazier do they have to interview a White candidate first?

Nope.

But Frazier has pretty well proven he's qualified for the job. I don't really see a problem with that.

Fewell


I could really see Fewell getting the interview. He grew up in Gastonia and has fielded some good defenses.
