NFL Teams Now Required to Hire a Minority Offensive Assistant Coach

Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

According to ESPN, every NFL team is required to hire one minority offensive assistant coach — the hire can be a female or a member of an ethnic or racial minority — for the 2022 season. Each coach will receive a one-year contract and “work closely with the head coach and offensive staff to gain experience,” Sports Illustrated said. NFL owners made the move during their annual Florida meeting as part of the league’s diversity efforts.
