Coley and Gran being white really held them back recruiting black players.
"I never knew I had a foot until I noticed it was on your neck"
No it's not, but when someone just throws out "and he needs to be black" there needs to be a good explanation.
I understand having black coaches on staff helps, but having a black QB coach is definitely not a necessity.
I work in high poverty schools, and when you have a great black educator, it matters. They are hard to come by. Read what I said again.
I'll take more proven and preferably black.
90 % of the clientele are black and many low income. It has to help.
I prefer much more experience than skin color.
If I had two equal guys at the position, I would take the black guy. Just a business decision. This is business.
Can white people not coach qb's? How about Asians or Hispanics?
However, Jimbo is already qb coach-Craig was a recruiter only (never an actual coach) but putting recruiter only on the resume is not good for career advancement.
bringing in a qb coach adds nothing to this staff.
I can point out black coaches who are/were poor recruiters. Eg Tyrone Willingham. Great x's and o's guy, was not keen on kissing the arses of 17 year olds.
As to Clientele, 90% of qb candidates are not black. Maybe not 50%.

I was speaking of replacing Craig the recruiter, and all I said was if all things were equal, I would prefer a he was black to better relate.
I guess if all things are equal for you, you can flip a coin.
