does college football need a 'Rooney rule'?
very few black head coaches at college level. (13 of 120 major programs; in 2008 it was 6, 2009 - 4, 1997 - 8 ) ( h http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1365/is_7_39/ai_... / )

'UF athletic director Jeremy Foley said Muschamp was the only person offered the job and the person targeted to replace Meyer, who surprisingly quit on Wednesday'. ( http://www2.tbo.com/content/2010/dec/11/112032/gators-c... / )

apparently no black candidates interviewed, much less considered.

1. People hire who they want. No Rooney rule will change that.
