The Rooney Rule

Marty Griffin and Wendy Bell
Friday, January 11th
Ed Bouchette joined Marty and Wendy to talk about the Rooney Rule, an NFL policy which requires league teams to interview ethnic-minority candidates for senior jobs and head coaching positions.  He told Marty and Wendy that Dan Rooney put the rule in place and it had an effect for a long time but it doesn’t seem to be the case this year.  Ed Bouchette said that a plausible theory put out by Ryan Clark today is that teams want young or quarterback coaches but minority quarterback coaches aren’t that common.
