Titans hire more minority coaches than other NFL teams; NFL has only four Hispanic coaches

WBIR-TV, Knoxville reports that in the NFL, only four Hispanic coaches or assistant coaches can be found. Tennessee's team boasts 40 percent minorities, compared to the NFL average of 30 percent.

"[Tennessee Titans Head Coach] Fisher filled two recent openings created by the departure of white assistants with minorities."

"Ray Sherman, who is black, took over for Steve Walters as wide receivers coach. Norm Chow, who is Asian, replaced Mike Heimerdinger as offensive coordinator."

"Chow rates as one of the most high-profile, non-black minority coaches in the NFL, which has just four Hispanics, three Asian-Americans and one Samoan among its coaches."
