The big reason why there are not any black hirings today is because there are no black coaches calling the plays for their team. The league is hiring offensive coordinators and these people need to call their plays.
The Rooney rule is great.
How is any of that "Great for the NFL?"
Maybe good for the guys who get an interview, but most of those guys are already on the short list as potential HC candidates anyway. Forcing someone to interview them however furthers no cause.
