Charles Barkley has said and done a lot of controversial things in his days, but his latest comments might bring about the most change. Contrary to popular belief, I don't agree with everything Barkley says, but on this issue I don't see how you can't. Barkley stirred the pot recently and he went on the Dan Patrick Show to apologize to new Auburn Head Coach, Gene Chizik, and to reiterate the need to hire Black Coaches....
Look....it's OBVIOUS that College Football programs aren't hiring Black Coaches. It's even more OBVIOUS that Turner Gill needs to be picked up somewhere and soon, but until either someone at a large University makes a stand or players boycott places like Auburn, nothing is going to change. And that's pretty depressing if you ask me. Your grand total of Black Coaches in Division 1-A is four....four people out of one hundred and twenty. Unbelievable.
Oh and be sure to listen to the rest of the interview, and especially the part when Barkley explains how he was kicked off the Auburn Basketball coach search committee. Hilarious story.
