NFL Diversity

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.
