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.
