New football podcast: Diversity & Inclusion in the NFL

On this edition of the Off The Charts Football Podcast, Matt Manocherian (@mattmano) and Mark Simon (@MarkASimonSays) are joined by N. Jeremi Duru (@NJeremiDuru), an author and law professor who is an expert on the NFL and its head coach hiring practices as relates to People of Color. The group discusses how the NFL is doing in that regard (2:56), how owners often rush head coach hiring decisions and don’t know what they’re looking for (4:42), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a model for putting together a coaching room (9:31), and the idea of a hiring moratorium during the playoffs (14:24). With this being Black History Month, they also touch on the importance of knowing who Fritz Pollard is (21:04).
