Number of African-American coaches remains unconscionable

Let me guess: You never saw the story. Or if you saw it, you didn’t care. Or if you did care, you don’t know what can be done about one of the most depressing numbers in major college football.
Four.

That’s it. Four African-American head football coaches out of 119 Football Bowl Subdivision programs, the lowest total since 1993. It used to be six — whoo-ee! — but that was before Washington pink-slipped Tyrone Willingham and Kansas State pulled the rip cord on Ron Prince’s purple parachute in recent weeks.
