If backs make up 13% should they make up more than 13% of the hires?


Yes.

Blacks are 50% of the sport in America in major DI and at the highest levels of the sport for several generations. At the NCAA Championships and USATF Nationals it's mostly black. At the USATF and AAU Jr. Olympic nationals it's about 80% black. The coaches should reflect that.


OR maybe the fact that theres so many white coaches involved in track producing 50-80 pct black athletes at ncaa and usatf shows that white coaches are working well with black athletes. Why change that and risk that the numbers change? Seems like you want to take a chance that black athlete's numbers drop. Thats not nice...


A friend of mine who told me once that he didn't get a coaching job, because he was a non-white distance coach and that the team and recruits may not relate to him well. that's some bull and then they go a hire some no achievement white guy.
