ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) A report on the NCAA and its member institutions shows fewer women holding jobs in college sports and only a small improvement in racial diversity.
The report, released Wednesday by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, gave college sports a B grade for racial hiring practices and a C-plus for gender hiring. The racial score of 82.3 points in 2013 increased from 81 points in 2012, while the gender score decreased from 81.3 points in 2012 to 75.9 in 2013.
College sports has the lowest grade for racial hiring, and only ranks higher than the NFL for gender hiring, among all college and professional institutions the Institute studies.
The Institute also produces report cards on the NBA, WNBA, Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer.
