Why does this rule even exist if football teams rarely take it seriously. Yes, I'm looking at you, Cardinals. They interviewed Horton? Really? I bet the interview went something like this.

Bidwell and Horton are walking down the hallway in opposite directions.

Bidwell: Morning, Ray.
Horton: How you doing, Mr. Bidwell?
Bidwell: Good. You know, you'll probably make a fine head coach someday.
Horton: (silence)
Bidwell: Good talk, Ray.

As he walks away...

Bidwell: Black guy interviewed...check. I hope Reid's number is right on my speed dial.

Now I don't know what kind of coach Horton is but I hope they give him a nice raise for being the token interview when he had to know they were never serious about hiring him.

I wonder...since Cleveland is gung-ho on Chip Kelly, who their token black interview will be?

Just do away with the rule, already. Owners hire who they want, regardless of color. Only once in a blue moon does a Tomlin or Frazier make it through.

Shame on you

This thread isn't going to last long but I agree. If you're not a HC candidate, you're not a HC candidate. Making teams interview people of different races just so they have to do it, is pretty ridiculous. Especially when 95% of the time, they have no intention of even giving the candidate a fair shot.

Seriously. Read the rules before posting again, especially in news forum.

He's right though. You have guys with no chance at getting the job being interviewed to satisfy this rule. It's insulting.

I do agree with this .

I believe it made more sense back in the day when people were being overlooked for this reason.

Now a days , i don't see it being a problem in the league .

I would Def be insulted and would be a waste of my time.
