I never heard about the Rooney Rule til today, but since it doesn't require one to hire a minority, just to interview a minority. No one is being forced to hire a minority, so this isn't social engineering.
Personally when I first read the title of this thread (Breaking News/Strong Rumor) I thought y'all were talking about Charlie Strong, who left UF coaching staff to become Head Coach at Louisville a few years ago.
I was disappointed to see that Strong isn't the subject of this thread at all. And he would satisfy the Rooney Rule, but that isn't a factor because he's a great coach and was actively recruited.
