The evolution of high power offenses has made it to the NFL. Not just college anymore. Owners will gamble with more points being scored, and hope the defense will just make enough stops. I mean look at Alabama now.

Really. It’s a race thing? Fuckkk no. Cardinals hired kliff to bring in a big personality that we haven’t had since BA and try to develop Rosen and this offense that was ruined by a bad defensive minded coach.

I personally would have given Wilks one more year to see what happens, unless the team totally quit on him. I don’t think I would have hired Cliff Dingleberry though.

Jeff Fisher had the same record or worse with the Lions but he didn't get the axe after one year no matter what team he was with. Marvin Lewis been in Cinncinatti for 15yrs and didn't do much of nothing. Much like Jason Garrett in Dallas. Lovie Smith got the axe after leading the bears to a SB. But wasn't Adam Gase part of that racist hazing down in Miami? Ijs. Romeo Crennel has shown he's HC material once again. Kris Richard as well. But to be fair, the Browns have cut coaches, black and white, in midseason. Kudos to UNC Tar Heels, Arizona State, UCF in Florida, Texas, & Penn State for getting the right HC to turn those prestigious programs around. But the NFL has just a little more power in the hiring process. Especially with the Rooney rule in affect. It seems that most NFL teams are finding "their" way around the rule by saying "oh we interviewed minorities" or "we gave him a year and it didn't work out". No ones saying give minorities the job because of the color of their skins(smirk), however like the FT panel has pointed out, just like the QB controversy, there are men of color coaches that have worked hard to be a HC in the NFL and for more than a damn year. Organizations like Arizona, Cleveland, NY Jets, Green bay, & Miami are going to take more than a year or two to turn into playoff contenders. Look how long Sean McVay took to take the LA Rams to the SB. Or Tony Dungy in Indianapolis, Harbaugh in SF and his brother in Baltimore, Andy Reid in KC, Anthony Lynn in LA, and Ron Rivera in Carolina. So if these owners care about winning and winning the big one as they put on, then they'll be a bit more realistic with their personnel hirings. Especially with the hirings of minorities.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Notice how Black Men never talk about owning shit. Even after an Arab bought the Jaguars. Just notice...African men NEVER talk or discuss owning anything! 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.

Look at the Jew...talking about so-called soft racism! Black men lack the mental acuity to fight these types of battles. We have never demanded to own a team...like the Arab who owns the Jaguars. Black men have chosen to be eternal victims...victims of their own doing.

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.

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.
