The NFL Got It Right

Luke Visconti’s Ask the White Guy column is a top draw on DiversityInc.com. Visconti, the founder and CEO of DiversityInc, is a nationally recognized leader in diversity management. In his popular column, readers who ask Visconti tough questions about race/culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability and age can expect smart, direct and disarmingly frank answers.

Ask the White Guy Luke ViscontiQuestion:
DI asks, “How Will the NCAA Address the Lack of Black Coaches?” The Oakland Raiders’ Al Davis, decades ago, already had the correct answer. “Just win, baby.”

 

Care to comment?

 

Answer:

Al Davis is right, but you can’t win if you don’t have a chance to play.

 

I had dinner with Cyrus Mehri last week and he stressed the importance of simple solutions. The NFL made it a policy to include at least one non-white candidate for every coaching opening. It worked.
