ST. LOUIS (AP)—The NFL denied the St. Louis Rams’ attempt to rework a contract with coach Jim Haslett that would ensure him a job beyond this season if he won six games because of a requirement that minority candidates be interviewed for head coaching vacancies.
Just tell me what the league thinks they’re accomplishing here? The Lions went through the same BS a few years back when everyone knew Mariucci would be the hire.
As I recall, it was difficult to get minority coaches to even interview for that job because they knew it was a charade. Or maybe it was difficult to get anyone to interview because it was the Lions… but I digress.
Pretty soon the team that plays in DC will be the Washington R-words.
