1.) College football is not the only sport that has dealt with the issue of under representation of African American coaches. Are there other collegiate or professional sports that have done a better job at hiring African Americans as head coaches? If so, why?
2.)Should the NCAA implement affirmative action initiatives to promote the hiring of more minority coaches? Why or why not?
3.) If the NCAA were to regulate hiring processes of member institutions, would that be enough to create a larger number of minority head coaches? Explain.
