Lets look at the real numbers. In college division one football there are only 5 Black head coaches despite many of the starting players being African American. This is even more true for division one basketball. Many of these coaches are making well over $2 million a year.
The University of Texas, accoording to CNBC, made over $63 million off of its football program this year. Its coach makes over $3 million a year. If you extended this over all the division one foot ball teams, then these colleges are making millions off of these Black student athletics. But they don't want to hire any of their former players as head coaches or assistants, once or if they graduate.
The college boosters concede that you need these young black bucks to be competitive, but they have told the schools, just make sure that this doesn't bleed over to the coaching ranks, because we are the one who write the checks.
The NFL is a little better better. 68% of the players are African American and they finally do have a handful of Black head coaches. But when they had 9 vacancies this season, most owners decided to hire all white first years coaches who never had NFL coaching experience before. The message seems to be clear.....Black man, you can perform on the field, but when your playing days are over, we have no more use for you...What do you think?
