Together with the NFL's coach


Together with the NFL's coach and general manager hiring cycle now in full swing, there is a sense of optimism in those early phases of the process about Madden nfl 21 coins the hunts being more diverse and inclusive than anything we have seen in the last several years. It's much too preliminary to make any proclamations, but through the first interviews for applicants not under NFL contracts, owners seem to be performing a more-than-cursory task of meeting with varied candidates, and there is a growing awareness among former and current NFL executives, training representatives, and one of the candidates of color themselves that 2021 may in reality be reflective of the composition of the NFL's locker rooms.

I'd call it cautious optimism, as NFL teams start to submit formal request slips to interview coach and GM candidates. Along with Rod Graves, head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which operates together with the NFL in the pursuit of diversity in the coaching and management ranks.

"A lot of credit goes to (Commissioner) Roger Goodell and (VP of football operations) Troy Vincent for its feeling of urgency which has developed about this issue over the past 8-to-12 months"

There's not anything to champion until we see the final results of those hunts, but it appears more than lip service is being paid to The Rooney Rule, and there's a sense within the classes doing the hiring which the time for words is over -- this league must be more equitable in who gets to sit in positions of power within the sport, and, ultimately, only the owners themselves may alter that.

Knowledgeable coaches such as Marvin Lewis and executives such as Rick Smith seem really poised at this point to have a legitimate opportunity with multiple teams.

The league has become more aggressive, proactive and consistent with its messaging to teams about the requirement to alter the way they have been doing business, and I've heard repeatedly from people doing the hiring, and people who represent many of the top candidates, the nature of this cycle will in fact differ.

"I have never felt that a vibe similar to this earlier," said one prominent agent. "I think Goodell has put the hammer down and these groups are receiving the message."

In the past Graves has broached the subject of pushing back all hires until after the Super Bowl to try to level the playing field to this in and beyond the match, giving the rules that regulate the sport. However, so many coaches and GMs being let go in-season this year -- creating a stronger cycle of buy mut coins madden 21 interviews while games were still being played -- is a lively that also could foster diversity.
