Post Parrish: SEC dusts off the robes

Tuesday April 24, 2007

Sportsline’s Gary Parrish points out today that recent changes among the SEC’s men’s basketball coaches have left the league with only one minority coach, Georgia’s Dennis Felton.

I won’t even address his suspect stretch to link another bizarre Arkansas personnel decision with a conference-wide backlash against minority coaches.

But I will ask this question: does such hysteria when a minority coach is fired make programs more or less likely to take a chance on a minority coach in the future?

(Don’t tell Parrish, but it’s even worse than it appears. Three of the four vacant SEC women’s basketball coaching positions this spring – all formerly held by women – went to men.)
