Herm Edwards is an idiot. He does a poor job on ESPN. I think he had a poor career as a player and a coach too?

As a coach he didn't even have a .500 win average, it's something like a .422; close but no cigar.

I'm confused a bit. Does the Rooney rule say that a minority must be interviewed first?

I believe it does, but we aren't hiring a new coach. We have a head coach.
We're hiring a 1-year stand-in.

I'm pretty sure the Rooney rule doesn't clarify that if your head coach is supended for a year you must interview a minority candidate.

Personally I think applying the Rooney rule here is making a mockery of the intention of the rule.

Here's an idea I'd be OK with... Have all 32 teams set up at least one interview with a minority candidate regardless of their coaching situation. After all, one of its main benefits is to get minority coaches accustomed to the interview process and it also gives 32 teams better insight and information on minority coaches throughout the league.

It may be a bit patronizing, but no more than the original rule itself is.

um its a interim job. If this is the case then if you fired a coach half way through the season then you would have to interview before premoting before the next game. Dungey is such a ignorant SOB. The key would here is INTERIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most teams are settled on who they wanted before the process begins.

Let's face it, the NFL is usually DEAD in March thru the draft. The Saints are the ONLY GIG IN TOWN for opportunist writers and journalist.
and its why this whole thing is kind of stupid, herm edwards is no journalist and jerry rice is no writer.

I love the cult of personality. Poor taste, unfulfilling. Kloe and Paris have more insight.
