Minority coaches have been attempting to break through the glass ceiling for years and took a step towards that last night by winning a Super Bowl. However, a great night for all minority coaches, with Tony Dungy's victory, was marred by a crushing loss on the same evening for Lovie Smith leaving black coaches at .500 for the big game. Because minority coaches were not hired early on in NFL history, and have been historically underrepresented in numbers, it isn't fair to count the all-time Super Bowl victories. However, it would have been a huge feather in minority candidates caps for them to have a lead in winning percentage. Unfortunately, Lovie Smith could not come through with his opportunity leaving black coaches tied with white coaches in all-time winning percentage at 1-1 compared to 40-40. It is rather unfortunate because if black coaches could have gotten to 2-0 last night it would have been truly historic.
