Though expected, the hiring of Marriucci is not sitting well with everyone. Attorneys Johnnie Cochran and Cyrus Mehri, leaders of a campaign for more minority hiring in the NFL, said in a statement yesterday, "The Lions have seriously threatened to undermine and potentially violate the new NFL minority hiring policy approved by team owners in December. Prior to conducting a single interview, general manager Matt Millen essentially crowned Steve Mariucci as the Lions' new head coach. He might well have put up a sign at Lions' headquarters reading, 'Head Coaching Vacancy: Minorities Need Not Apply.' "
Who should the Lions have hired then ?
Is this political correctness gone crazy ?
