Case study1In 1920, national football league was founded and has 32 franchise located in the majorcities around the world.League is not merely sports it's a business enterprises to earn thelump sum profit. There is accusation on an owner of been racial prejudice, which resultedin lower percentage of minority coaches and administration.The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport (TIDES), located at the University ofCentral Florida (UCF), publishes the Racial and Gender Report Card annually to indicateareas of improvement, stagnation, and regression in the racial and gender composition ofprofessional and college sports personnel and to contribute to the improvement ofintegration in front office and college athletic department positions. The publication ofthe 2015 NFL Racial and Gender Report Card follows the publication of the reports oncollege sport, the National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball. Theremaining reports for this year will be for the Women’s National Basketball Associateand Major League SoccerTo rectify the problem lawyers Johnnie Cochran and Cyrus Mehri has proposed a plan toincrease the number of the minority in NFL. Thus, they make draft choices represent theNFL's essential currency; the proposal depicts that for responsible management, thosewho hire minority coaches will receive extra rewards and other will lose some if theydecide to refrain from hiring minority coaches(Kovach, Kenneth A). No, this draft planwill not work in case the minority coaches, as showed in many cases minority coachesbelieve that the hiring process are biased and there are discrepancies in that. There arefewer chances for minority coaches to be a head coaching position and there is alwaysfavoritism towards non-minority coaches. It was also perceived by most collegiate thatminority coaches lack the necessary experience and skills to serve in leadershipThere are various explanations for the lack of minority coaches in sports as a whole.

The university conference and from where itsbelong whether it was a private institution or public institution and its also depends on theempirical cases of the university all the success and failure result critically examined bythe conference members which influence their decision. Studies show till 2000, there hadnever been a black head coach in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). In the startingseason of Mississippi state university in 2004, the first minor head football coach washired named, Sylvester Croom.Other explored the possibility of racial discrimination in the dismissal and retention ofcollege football coaches by the university administration. Minority coaches stay for thesmaller number of time, and there are chances that the lack of minority head coaches isdue to unfair dismissal and retention towards black coaches. Data on 81 institutions over11 year period that contains the coach's race, variables on cumulative winning records,annual on-the-field improvement, pre and post season game participation and black coachshow a dismissal probability that is 9.6% below that of white coaches. Thus, studies showthere is possible discrimination at college level shown through the disproportionateminority and nonminority coaches.If I have a chance a chance to divert the plantodivert the plan I will surely do making adraft choices represent the NFL’s essential currency, as a proposal for responsiblemanagement, those who hire minority coaches will receive extra rewards, and other will
