The New York Jets interviewed Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy in January 2019 for their head-coaching vacancy. Had the Jets hired Bienemy instead of Adam Gase (and all other variables remained constant), they would’ve received the 73rd pick in the 2020 NFL draft, not the 79th pick, in accordance with a proposed update to the Rooney Rule.
"Clearly we are not where we want to be on this level," Roger Goodell said in January regarding head coach and general manager opportunities for minorities. "It's clear we need to change. We have already begun discussing those changes, what stages we can take next to determine better outcomes."
One change could be a draft-pick incentive if teams hire a minority head coach and/or general manager. NFL.com’s Jim Trotter reported Friday the league will vote on several updates to the Rooney Rule, including:
“If a team hires a minority head coach, that team, in the draft preceding the coach's second season, would move up six spots from where it is slotted to pick in the third round. A team would jump 10 spots under the same scenario for hiring a person of color as its primary football executive, a position more commonly known as general manager.”
Five months after hiring Gase, the Jets hired Joe Douglas as general manager. Had they hired a minority general manager, that 73rd pick would’ve been 63rd pick, minority hires.


Other potential changes including compensatory picks: Third-round compensatory pick to any team whose minority coach or front-office members leaves to become a head coach or general manager for another team, fourth-round pick to any team that hires a minority as quarterbacks coach, and fifth-round pick if a team’s minority assistant leaves to become a coordinator for another team.

I think changes like these lessen the work that Tony Dungy, Mike Tomlin, Lovie Smith, Marvin Lewis, Art Shell, Ozzie Newsome, Tom Flores and others have done.

I’d love to see the NFL turn into a battle of who can hire the minority worth the most draft picks.

Team such and such hired a Japanese, Muslim from South Sudan who became non binary last week as their new GM. Every pick is now a first rounder

I wonder how much that corrupt piece of shit Roger Goodell and the Rooney family are getting paid under the table by the special interest groups that run this country to make this happen?

I still don't get how Bienemy hasn't gotten a job when retreads keep on getting hired and teams still suck. It's ok, though, he can stay here in KC and run the offence.

I'm still waiting for them to have a mandated immigrant hiring rule in the NFL

I would think of another 'reward' if you are going to do this.
