Rooney rule??????

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I know this applies to hiring for a head coach position, but does that include interim coach duties? Someone said they were talking about this on NFLN....

Who'd you hire for one season?

Herm Edwards - MORON

Tony Dungy - Can't Win the Big One

This is a unique situation whereby Coach Payton will be back after the suspension...

Besides Coach Parcells is the perfect payback to the media - if they think Coach Payton was difficult wait till they get a load of the Parcells Nuclear Response!

I don't know the rule completely, or how it applies to this situation, but being that Payton is still under contract, and is on suspension, then to me, the Rooney Rule wouldn't apply. But, once again, I am no expert on this, so someone with a better understanding of this, please explain it to me.

The rule does't apply its only a stand in coach.

The rules are in play if you are hiring a HC full time.

Apparently it was our good buddy Roger Goodell..... But according to NBC, it does apply... Now I am confused....

Rooney Rule has limited application to Saints

We can still hire or "promote" a head coach from within and bypass the rules... my vote still goes to Pete Carmichael
