Earlier this month, the NFL modified the 2003 Rooney Rule, which requires every professional team to interview one or more diverse candidates.
“Since the inception of the Rooney Rule, we have seen the rule adopted across business sectors and considered an industry best practice to increase diversity," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement on December 12. "The policy updates made today will bolster the current Rooney Rule requirements and are intended to create additional opportunities for diverse candidates to be identified, interviewed, and ultimately hired when a vacancy becomes available."
