DRC: Where UNT's search for a new assistant is headed as the AFCA convention begins

Recommended Posts

To me, this makes a lot of sense:

 

"It'd be a surprise if UNT doesn't go with a minority candidate who has experience coaching running backs."

I thought it was supposed to be the best candidate, not the best candidate of a certain race, gender, sexual orientation, etc?

I guess Bret doesn't want give any blame to GH for the offensive melt downs the last half of the season.

 Absolutely. In the end that is all that matters. But one of the factors that should come into play is how that coach will be able to relate with the players. Additionally, the RB coach position was the tenth coaching position which was authorized only last year; therefore it is also likely a lower pay slot, which means you likely will be getting a younger coach. They hopefully also played the position. Put all that together and a young up-and-coming African-American coach (like Coach Choice) makes a lot of sense for this hire.

UMMMM no thanks, I'll take the best offensive mind I can get, that can connect with players, and recruit.  Skin tone doesnt make a S******************* when hiring this spot.

I didn’t say it had to be, just that it made sense. Not sure why so many seem to be bothered or confused by the notion of hiring well-qualified black coaches to work with young black kids.

I get what you're saying, but it's not necessarily true.  Coaches who come from different backgrounds can relate just fine.

Dang y'all that quote had zero context or information.

It felt just thrown in there so I'm not sure if it was conjecture (no Rooney rule in cfb) or if it is known who it is going to be, or if it is through some program like the Champions Forum to increase diversity in the coaching ranks (because there are good minority coaches that get buried in the sea of milquetoast because they don't have the same connections, for example).

Y'all just chill with the "I don't see color" approach.

I was more caught on the " he has never coached running backs so no way he is qualified" comment

so is Riley on the staff or not?  I realize he may not end up being the RBs coach, but he would be a great hire if we can find a spot for him.

This is the 100% facts right here. We want the best coaches we can get, no doubt. I believe there is a way to get the best coaches and have a diverse staff.

I don't care what the skin color, religion, or any other defining characteristic outside of being a good coach.

Hire the best coach for the job. Win football games. Period.

I mean, as long as they aren't a UTSA grad.  We have standards.

If they're qualified, who cares if they're black or white. I mean hell, I guess Bedford should've been more successful than McCastland.  And I don't think anyone said that you implied that the coach HAD to be.
