Earlier this year, Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores shook up the NFL when he filed a lawsuit against the NFL and various teams over discriminatory practices. His lawsuit reignited the conversation about why there are so many black players in the league, yet so little head coaches of the same race to lead them.

On Wednesday, The Washington Post kicked off an editorial series detailing the struggles of Black coaches in the NFL, and Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson provided an interesting theory as to why Black coaches are not hired.

Tomlinson stated NFL owners aren’t familiar enough with the way Black coaching candidates communicate and express themselves.
