PAC 12

The annual hiring/firing season of college basketball coaches created a potentially troubling issue in the Pac-12. For the first time since 1972, there are no African-American head men’s basketball coaches in the league. In fact, of the 24 men’s and women’s head coaches in Pac-12 basketball, Arizona’s Adia Barnes — who is biracial — is the only person of color currently employed as a head coach.

The Big 12 has just two minority head basketball coaches, Mike Boynton of Oklahoma State and Shaka Smart of Texas. -Greg Hansen, Arizona Daily Star. Read More.
