The NFL received another high grade for its racial hiring amid concerns over a significant drop in minority head coaches this season.
The annual report by The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport on Tuesday gave the league its fourth consecutive A grade on racial hiring practices and a C+ for gender hiring. The league received an overall grade of B.
The number of coaches of color has fallen from a league-high eight in 2011 to four this season. The report also expressed concern that of the eight NFL coaching vacancies this offseason, none was filled by minority candidates.
However, the total number of women and people of color at or above the vice president level in the NFL increased by 11 percent this year.
