The NFL passed the Rooney Rule in 2003 to increase opportunities for minorities seeking to become head coaches. It seemed to help for a while, but in retrospect, it looks like Tony Dungys coaching tree fueled a short-term spike that has been unsustainable.Here are the top takeaways from our study on the NFLs minority coaching failure:1. Recent stagnation: Twenty-one of 22 first-time head coaches hired from 2012-2016 were white. Thats identical to hiring figures from 1997-2001 and a clear regression from the first nine years of the Rooney Rule (2003-11), when 32 of the 42 first-time head coaches were white. A minority assistant coach said: Remember the old thing [where they said] you cant win with a black quarterback? It is almost like that for the coaches.2. White coaches fill the most upwardly mobile jobs: Eighty of the NFLs 85 current offensive coordinators, QB coaches and offensive quality control coaches are white; 23 of 32 current defensive coordinators are white. The Rooney Rule does not currently apply to coordinator openings, which Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he would like to see change.?3. Clear path to becoming a head coach: Ninety-four percent of head coaches hired over the past 20 years had previously served as NFL coordinators, pro head coaches or college head coaches. With the majority of coordinator positions occupied by white coaches (as discussed in No. 2), minorities are at an inherent disadvantage for head coaching positions. The result? White coaches have filled 120 of the 141 head coaching vacancies since 1997.4. Missing Dungy: Coaches with ties to Dungy account for 43 percent of minority head coaching hires over the past 20 years, including 39 percent under the Rooney Rule, but Dungys coaching tree stopped growing when he retired following the 2008 season.5. Difference between coaches and players:?Approximately one-third of all NFL coaches are minorities, while two-thirds of players are African-American. One minority coach said you better have some [coaches] who can relate to black players, but only three coaching staffs have at least 50 percent minority coaches this season.Nmd Uomo Ingrosso .

It also was a bit surprising.Dr. Robert Cantu, a concussion expert and co-founder of a center that studies head trauma at Boston University Medical School, on Tuesday told The Associated Press a raucous football sideline typically wouldnt be the ideal environment for a person who just sustained a concussion.We normally dont encourage people to be in stimulating circumstances right after a concussion, Cantu said. So we normally wouldnt bring someone back to the sideline. Wed keep him in a quiet environment -- not a dark room and all that, but not the stimulation of a football field. So thats a bit atypical.But I dont know what his symptomatic status was, Cantu added. If everything cleared up real quickly, it wasnt necessarily wrong.Armstrong, according to Nebraska director of athletic medicine Dr. Lonnie Albers, went through a very thorough medical and imaging process at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center and left the hospital without symptoms.A member of the Nebraska medical staff was present throughout the evaluation at the hospital, through the dismissal process, and on the sideline upon Tommys return to the stadium, Albers said in a statement. Tommy left the hospital symptom-free and reported no symptoms during post-dismissal monitoring at the stadium.Coach Mike Riley said Monday that Armstrong was going through a concussion protocol and would require clearance from the athletic departments medical staff in order to play in this Saturdays game against Minnesota. Riley characterized Armstrong as day to day.ddddddddddddantu, a consultant to the NFL Head, Neck and Spine Committee, said if Armstrongs symptoms cleared up quickly, it would not be unreasonable to expect him to be ready to play in the next game.The important thing is how fast the symptoms cleared up, Cantu said. The fact he was briefly unconscious is largely not important in terms of severity of the concussion. The severity of the concussion is much more correlated to how long it takes for symptoms to clear. So the fact he was unconscious for a few seconds, that means he had a concussion and needs to be checked out, but it doesnt necessarily mean its going to be a long period of time hes away.Nebraskas concussion protocol will require Armstrong to complete a computerized neurocognitive test to show he has returned to his normal neurological state. He then will be monitored to see how he tolerates increasing levels of activity. If he shows he can handle activity without worsening or new symptoms, hes allowed to return to competition.Dr. Arthur Maerlender, director of clinical research at the universitys Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, is charged with interpreting Armstrongs neuropsychological test results in the protocol.There is no magic window of time to stay out, Maerlender wrote in an email to the AP. Loss of consciousness (LOC) is not a very good predictor of anything. Given current knowledge, athletes can return to contact if all signs, symptoms and test scores are back to baseline and they complete a step-wise physical exertion process.Future research may show that to be inadequate, but we have no solid evidence of that yet, he said.---More AP college football at http://collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
