And, teams are allowed to "hire who you want period." This isn't about forcing someone to be hired. This is about opportunity.
The reason why the rule was put in place is because white coaches were getting rehired and fired 3 or 4 times and no minority candiates were getting interviewed.
Explain how bringing in a minority who is a coach you don't want helps anything?? In 2003 the Lions wanted Steve Mariucci they had minority people scheduled but they cancelled because they knew the Lions wanted Mariucci.. So the Lions got fined 200,000 for not interviewing any minorities..
