Legal action could be required to force change

The Black Coaches Association (BCA) recently released its annual report card on minority hiring (or lack thereof) in major college football. Much of the attention was focused on the sorry numbers, but not much attention was given to the BCA's comment that legal action might be necessary to get universities to make the hiring process for minority coaches fair and equitable.

Let's face it: Legal action is inevitable to coax universities to do the right thing. That's because social change rarely happens without legal action or legislation.
