Indianapolis, In - In an effort to address significant issues that pertain directly to the participation and employment of minorities in sports, the Black Coaches and Administrators (BCA), will release the 6th Football Hiring Report Card on Wednesday, November 18, 2009. The full detailed BCA Football HRC #6 will be published on line no later than 9:00 a.m. at

"On a yearly basis, it is the hope of BCA that a fair and equitable search will provide more opportunities for coaches of color. The initial focus is on making sure a quality list of candidates are represented in the pool and then to show that the quality of coaches across the board is very good, regardless of color", said Dave Leitao, BCA President.

Floyd Keith, BCA Executive Director states that "many advocates have joined the BCA to address the inequity in the hiring of collegiate head football coaches at all levels. Most recently, the efforts of Mr. Sam Sachs, a concerned Oregon citizen, helped spearhead the passage of our country's first state law which essentially put the context of the NFL's "Rooney Rule" into legislation for public collegiate athletic program in Oregon."

The BCA Hiring Report Card highlights hiring practices for head football coaches in Football Bowl Subdivision and Football Championship Division. As we continue to move forward, we cannot continue to accept the current hiring practices in college football, because they do not work. We need more firepower in college football.
