ORLANDO, Fla. -- A new study finds a lack of diversity in
the key leadership positions at Football Bowl Subdivision schools
The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the
University of Central Florida released the report Tuesday. It found
that for the 362 campus leadership positions studied, more than 91
percent of the officials were white.
The report examined positions such as conference commissioners,
school presidents, athletic directors, faculty athletics
representatives and head football coaches. It found that white men
made up 77.5 percent of presidents and 82.5 percent of athletic
Institute director Richard Lapchick says "the numbers simply do
not reflect the diversity of our student-athletes."
