Jim Caldwell nearly went undefeated as a rookie coach in Indianapolis three years ago and he's one win away from returning to the Super Bowl as an assistant with Baltimore.
Yet Caldwell didn't get one interview for any of the eight coaching vacancies in the NFL this year.
``That's almost impossible for me to comprehend,'' John Wooten, chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance Foundation, told The Associated Press on Friday.
Eight teams hired new coaches and six more filled general manager positions with one opening remaining. None of those jobs went to a minority.
Now the league is considering revisions to the ``Rooney Rule,'' which mandates that teams must interview at least one minority candidate for front-office and head coaching jobs.
