...even though he’s using an Alabama RB with a phallus protruding from his helmet.

Love the Oklahoma QB, being coached by the Alabama QB, getting their clocks cleaned by the Buckeye DE.

Unlike you, I never applied a specific example to all “black guys”.  In Taggart’s case, he was in his 30’s when he got his first HC opportunity (is still young) and he happens to be black, which can be very relatable to targeted recruits—which could be one additional attribute in an overall resume.

I never applied this scenario to all black coaches.  Dino Babers, David Shaw, James Franklin, Kevin Sumlin are just a few black HCs who were hired with some amount of previous success and have continued to succeed, more or less.  I applaud any effort to get more minorities college coaching experience, allowing them to work their way up the ladder.   However, in Taggart and Locksley’s cases (Locksley had a 3-31 record as HC when Maryland hired him), their attractiveness (call it charisma) to the recruiting pool can’t be overlooked when their previous HC records are considered.
