 MIAMI (AP) -The NFL has maintained a steady number of black head coaches, while slightly increasing the ranks of minority players, earning a B+ in an annual diversity study.
However, the league didn't get a grade for gender diversity in results released Wednesday. The NFL is the only pro sports organization that refuses to share its data with University of Central Florida researchers who do the annual studies.
In the 2007 season, 66 percent of NFL players were black, a one point decrease from the previous year. White players continued to make up 31 percent of the total, but the difference was made up by a small increase in Latino and Asian players.
The NFL has six black head coaches and five black general managers entering this season, the same as 2007.
