There's no excuse for teams to pass on black coaches

Before I was promoted, the position I now hold was always filled either from the current management pool or from outside the company. I got promoted and took my team from last to first within two years, and it was like the light went on in my company. "What? Non-management to management and it worked? This is do-able?" The question before us is, "Is the light on yet in the NFL?" A winning team can happen when a commitment is made to a new QB or coach but the owners don't always take chances-they hire the tried-and-proven. Who does that leave out? Also, sometimes old beliefs stay in hiding even from ourselves and when it is time to hire, the old beliefs come back to the surface. Maybe their internal picture of what a head coach is doesn't include a dark skin (something akin to dealing with inter-racial dating). Is the light on yet? I'm not sure.
