Under Armor to invest $1.5 million in minority coaching coalition

There are too few Black head coaches in college football. In a sport that is roughly 50% Black at the player level, only 15 of 131 FBS jobs are held by Black men. According to an NCAA race and gender demographics database, 61% of football players in the SEC are Black, and yet there are no Black coaches in one of the richest and certainly the most recently successful conferences in the sport. Qualified Black coaches are out there, but the responsibility rests with athletic directors to follow through and hire them.
