Again, white coaches have more connections in general and white men make up most of the coaching and executive positions in the NFL.
Does it shock me that Rick Smith hired a white guy that he just happened to know from his time with the Broncos to coach the Texans? Not at all.
However, the Rooney Rule allowed for at least one minority coaching candidate to interview with the Texans and gain experience and connections that he didn't have that Gary Kubiak did and was able to leverage into his position.
I'm just going to come down on the side that you're just a flat out racist.
Edit: Also Jerry Reese wasn't even general manager when Tom Coughlin was hired you racist moron.
You of course are 100% correct.
