>>NFL Amending Rooney Rule After Lack Of Diversity Hires

(New York, NY) — The NFL is amending its Rooney Rule after few minority candidates were hired in recent years. The league adopted the rule in 2003 to require teams to interview qualified minority candidates for head coach and coordinator jobs. Now, teams will need to interview at least two minorities for head coaching jobs and one for a coordinator’s post.

>>Chiefs Re-Open Facility
