Hire the best coach you possible can regardless of skin color.

And I define best as a coach who has a track record of outstanding performance at high levels in college or pro athletics. That's why the names Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, Bob Stoops are being thrown around this board as opposed to say Charlie Strong or Kevin Sumlin. No offense to Strong and Sumlin, probably the two most recognizable African American college head coaches, but neither has achieved anything close to what Saban, Meyer and Stoops have accomplished.

What appears to be happening here is that you just don't like the answers people are giving you, not that people are interpreting your questions a certain way or making presumptions.

Should ND recruit African American coaches for their head coaching spots? Absolutely. As long as those African American coaches have shown a strong track record of success. Not, for example, because as African Americans, they might relate to African American players better and recruit them better (which is probably a fallacy to begin with).
