Survey: Non-White Coach Hires Dip In Women's Hoops

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - The number of nonwhite coaches hired in women's college basketball has declined in the latest assessment from the Black Coaches and Administrators group.

The fourth BCA report found that five nonwhite coaches were hired out of 18 openings from 2009-11.

That's down from the record nine who were hired out of 16 openings in 2007-08.

Eleven of the 18 schools identified in Friday's report received A's for their hiring processes.

Five didn't hire nonwhite candidates, but got credit for their diverse candidate pools and search committees.

The BCA has also graded college football since 2004.
