    Art Shell resumes career

    Art Shell to resume career as the go-to minority candidate other teams “interview”
    sportspickle.com

    Former Oakland Raiders head coach Art Shell said he is disappointed his return to the NFL as a head coach lasted only one season, but is confident his name will be linked to many other job openings very soon.

    “I’m still just 60 years old and only a week removed from being a head coach,” said Shell. “So plenty of teams will still want to pretend to have interest in me when they are looking to meet the league requirement to interview a black coach. Giving phone interviews and brief in-person interviews is how I spent most of the past 10 years, and it’s how I’ll probably spend the coming decade, too.”

    Shell said he doubts he will be offered another head coaching job, however.

    “When Al Davis fired me he promised me he would recommend me to other teams,” said Shell. “That’s nice of him, but it also pretty much serves as a death sentence for my career.”

    When I hear that Davis is considering John Shoop as a head coaching candidate, I can believe that last quote.

    He could start a business.


    He pretends he is interviewing for vacant headcoaching jobs so teams can meet the minority interview requirements and he charges them $50,000 and gets a free trip and expenses paid.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
