My god, this has "TTT" written all over it. Hire the best damn candidate possible, regardless of their race!

Quote:Per multiple coaches, the school has conducted some phone/Zoom interviews in recent weeks. Additionally, we are told that Southern Miss President Dr. Rodney Bennett has spoken with Maryland head coach Mike Locksley, who in August announced that he helped found and launch the National Coalition of Minority Football Coaches to help increase hiring of minority candidates at both the collegiate and professional levels.

No doubt it will be a hire based on race which is unfortunate. If the best candidate is a minority then great hire him. However to make the hire based on that is a bad idea

Hired last coaching staff from the SWAC. What's the next progression? Asking for a Dixie Darling.

Calm down, fellas [he typed, as if that would happen].

Per this earlier report based on emails acquired via FOIA, Locksley reached out to us first, and why the hell would you not call back somebody who already has a vetted list of candidates? The best guy available just may be on there. Don’t read too much into it [he again typed as if he didn’t know his audience].
