NCAA Football Coach 'Hiring Report Card'

There are 117 head coaches in Division I NCAA football — but only four are African American. Today, the Black Coaches Association (BCA) and the NCAA announce a "hiring report card" that will analyze the search process for hiring head coaches each year. NPR's Tavis Smiley is joined by Floyd Keith, executive director of the BCA, and Ron Stratton, vice president of educational services for the NCAA, to discuss the new policy.
