Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones weighed in on Brian Flores' lawsuit against the NFL alleging racism in hiring practices. Jones acknowledged that diversity in head coaching is something the league needs to improve.
"I can see it's an area, one of many, that we can do better," Jones said Wednesday while attending Senior Bowl practices, per USA Today's Jori Epstein. "The area has some good attention. This is obvious if you look through that that the league and coaches are trying to improve there."
Flores was fired last month after three seasons as head coach of the Miami Dolphins despite notching winning records in back-to-back years. He completed interviews for head coach openings with multiple teams this offseason, and he was considered to be one of the most popular candidates this hiring cycle.
