A new study gives college sports a B grade for racial and gender hiring practices, though the overall numbers have dipped slightly from last year.
The 2012 College Sport Racial and Gender Report Card was issued Wednesday by the University of Central Florida's Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport.
The mark for gender hiring rose slightly to 81.3 points from 80.7 a year ago, while the number for racial hiring dipped to 81 points from 82.2. The overall score fell to 81.1 points from 81.5.
The study showed areas of improvement but pointed out concerns. The proportion of African-American men's basketball coaches in Division I dipped to 18.6 percent, down from a high of 25.2 percent in 2005-06.
