I listened to Goodells speech at the owners meeting and he said we can hire from within and the rooney rule would only apply if we try and hire outside of the organization

EDIT: NFL Network just scrolled across the screen that Spagnoula and Carmichael are still possibilities to take over this year

Now read what NBC said on the link I posted..... Because it seems to conflict with what CBS said.

Its the most stupid rule in the league.

You can honestly ask any black guy hey you want the job and he says no you're covered.

We are covered if Parcells take the job he is a minority...

Irish and Italian.

Doesn't have to be black... just minority even though its heavily favors blacks.

It would also apply to an interim hire, if the head coach had been fired. But Payton is suspended and still under contract, so the Saints can do whatever they want here.

I don't think you can bypass the rules, thats how we got here in the first place. You guys act as if interviewing an African American candidate is the worst thing in the world. You can do what the Cowboys did before they hired Jason Garrett, interview someone on staff already and then just hire your guy. Its good coaching experience for the candidate. Curtis Johnson the former WR coach, Henry Ellard, just for example I don't know what the big deal is.
