WFAA Dallas broadcaster Dale Hansen sounded off on the NFL's slate of offseason head coach hirings on Wednesday night, commenting on the six jobs filled since the regular season ended on Dec. 30. Hansen specifically noted the Cardinals' hiring of former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury, noting the move as another example of white privelige in the NFL coaching community. 

"Kingsbury fits all the criteria to be a head coach in the NFL," Hansen said on WFAA's nightly newscast. "He's an offensive genius, he's young — and he's white, and not necessarily in that order... There have been six new coaches hired so far, all white and two coaches of color. They are replacing Steve Wilks, fired in Arizona after just one year, and Vance joseph in Denver after just two."
