INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A new study by the Black Coaches and Administrators says minorities are getting more interviews but are still not getting enough jobs in college football.
The annual BCA hiring report card released Wednesday says almost a third of the candidates interviewed last year were minorities, but only four were hired among the 31 openings in the NCAA's FBS and FCS subdivisions.
The recent firings of Ty Willingham at Washington and Ron Prince at Kansas State leave the NCAA's top division with only four blacks, one Latino and one Pacific Islander as head coaches. BCA executive director Floyd Keith says the report's message is that the process is being followed but with poor results.
