Head Coaches Pic …
Can You Spot The White Guy?!?

No, this is not the new Republican party intern photo … it’s the NFL’s annual head coaches pic — and as you can tell, it’s overflowing with diversity.
IMPORTANT FACT — Mike Tomlin is missing from the photo … but so are 5 other white coaches.
As you can probably tell, there is DEFINITELY not enough black representation in the head coaching ranks … something the NFL has acknowledged.
The league has the Rooney Rule — which requires NFL teams to interview minority candidates for every available head coaching job … but as you can see, it ain’t always effective.
The good news … there seems to be a crop of talented, young black assistant coaches who are all making compelling cases for a head coaching gig in the near future, including guys like Kris Richard, Eric Bieniemy and Teryl Austin.
… but for now, this is it.
