As many know, Dan Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, created the Rooney Rule in the National Football League.

Within the last five years, five of 10 head coaches who led their teams to the Super Bowl were African-American, and the teams coached by two of the five African-American coaches won the Super Bowl. Despite disputes over whether the Rooney Rule is necessary or politically correct, its success is notable.
