RTFA. This shirt is just sad. While I love keeping Bienemy at the Chiefs as OC, he really deserves a shot at a head coaching position.

Also, WTF? The only Latino head coach works for the Redacteds? No idea how Dan Snyder, racist asshole, let that happen.

I'm glad the rules now specifically state "external minority candidates". Too many teams basically give quick "invite in for 10 minutes" chats to their existing minority RB or LB coach just to get it out of the way. Then they can say "What? We interviewed a minority, he just wasn't a good fit!" whenever anyone asks why they went with some warmed-over coaching retread or a random coordinator or college coach no one else was even thinking about.

The rules passed (ESPN link) also prohibit teams from doing the "We're blocking assistant coaches from interviewing elsewhere because we pinky-swear are planning on promoting them someday" thing. Unfortunately, what they *DON'T* do (at least, not that I can see) is block the "Oh, we've already spent time and effort grooming this guy on our staff (who's been there 3 weeks and has a title of "Locker Room Mentor") to be our new coach, so we clearly don't need to interview anyone at all" loophole. [I can't find all of the rule changes over the past few years, and I know the Raiders-Gruden hiring triggered a bunch, so maybe they already took care of this earlier.]

Can anyone explain to me why the NFL is classified as a non profit?

They ended that but it really never was. I mean, technically "the league" was but the teams aren't. All the revenue generated goes to the teams and the league office (NFL) just basically manages that. The individual teams then pay the taxes otherwise they would be taxed twice on the same revenue.

Think of it like a payroll company that doesn't charge for their service. A bunch of companies have all their revenue go to the payroll company and they distribute it to those companies employees.

The league office doesn't make any money, the individual teams do.

I don't know if I did a good job explaining it. It's a little confusing but makes sense. There are plenty of articles out there explaining how it works though.
