The Betting Implications of the Dolphins, Browns Tanking Seasons

February 4, 2022

Former Dolphins head coach Brain Flores filed a class-action lawsuit Tuesday alleging racial discrimination in the NFL hiring process.

Flores claimed the NFL suffers from systemic racism and accused the league and multiple teams (Giants, Broncos) of sham interviews and improper hiring practices, calling into question the NFL’s Rooney Rule. The Rooney rule requires NFL teams to interview two external minority candidates for vacant head coaching jobs.

The NFL currently has only one active Black head coach, Mike Tomlin of the Steelers. White men have been selected for the six openings that have been filled thus far this offseason, with the Saints, Texans and Dolphins still searching.
