Diversity Group Seeking Minority Interviewing Rule in College Football
MIAMI--Cyrus Mehri, the Washington attorney who serves as counsel to the Fritz Pollard Alliance, said today he'd been contacted by NCAA President Myles Brand to discuss the possibility of a minority interviewing rule, like the one the NFL has for its coaches, being implemented in college football.
The NFL requires each of its teams with a head coaching vacancy to interview at least one minority candidate and the Fritz Pollard Alliance, the group formed to promote diversity at all levels of the NFL, would like to see a similar measure enacted for college football programs. Mehri said a meeting with Brand had not been scheduled yet and he didn't know the chances of such a rule being put in place for colleges.
"That's why we want to sit down with Dr. Brand and talk about it," Mehri said. "What we do know is the status quo is not working."
