I personally think it's an awful rule. Not because I don't believe in minorities getting the job or anything, but I think it sends the wrong message. They have to interview somebody because theyre a minority. I honestly think a coach should only be interviewed if he's a legit contender, not because he's black, or hispanic, etc.

It's a dumb rule.

" (Dakota) Prescott completed 58.4 percent of his passes in 2013, 11th among the 13 SEC quarterbacks with enough attempts to qualify. He threw 10 touchdowns to seven interceptions, a TD-to-INT ratio more on par with Arkansas' Brandon Allen (13-10) than Manziel. " -Hugh Kellenburger

Well no shit. But it's also because theres more and more minorities becoming coaches every day.

One reason I've always liked sports is because it allows people from different backgrounds to come together, both as players and as fans. When you're out there on that field, you don't have time to worry about what color the 350 lb guy who's hauling ass about to knock that football out of your hand is. Sports are the great equalizer. Jackie Robinson would never have played for the Dodgers because someone was interested in integrating baseball if he was a mediocre player. Dude could play and at some point you have to get the best damn player available. Sports have also been a way for whites to start accepting blacks more and more as well. Things still aren't perfect, but it feels like we're headed in the right direction.
What really needs to be addressed in this country is poverty and education.
