A great milestone was achieved when the top 25 rankings came out for week 12 of the college football season. For the first time in history 4 African-American coaches had their respective teams ranked in the top 25. When you take a step back 4 out of 25 teams isn’t even a lot, it’s only 16% if you break it down. It’s crazy it took to the year of 2012 for this milestone to happen. On a positive light it shows that the coaching landscape is changing slowing but surely.
Highlight the 4 coaches:
Each coach is in a different conference placing their footprint on the game. Hopefully this record doesn’t stand long because records are made to be broken and if it doesn’t stand long it means African American’s are getting more shots on the big stage.
I want to shout these coaches out for their great achievement. I know the mainstream media isn’t shedding much light on these four coaches so I wanted to do my part. Much success to the rest of their season and future endeavors.
