    I hope this doesn't sound overly bad, but why all the need for "minority coaches?" And are those for white players because they are in the minority of the team members? This is a serious question.

    "The Minority Fellowship Coaching Program provides opportunities to minority candidates of varying backgrounds, but it has proven particularly useful for former NFL players who wish to move into the world of coaching."

    Are these coaches of a minority race or so to speak, minor league type coaches, as in "green horns"?

    Ahhhhh, now that makes sense. They are not coaching minority players but they are minorities who are learning how to coach. So are we hire them or are they doing it free for the experience? The headline from KFFL says "hiring" but the body of the story says "hosting."

    It's looking like one babysitter for each player.
