The one way street of discrimination continues...

Muffet McGraw Says She Won’t Hire a Man on Her Coaching Staff. Let Her Tell You Why

“Men run the world. Men have the power. Men make the decisions. It’s always the man that is the stronger one,” McGraw said, her voice rising in response to a question about saying in a recent ThinkProgress article that she would not hire another man for her coaching staff.

“When these girls are coming out, who are they looking up to to tell them that’s not the way it has to be?” McGraw continued. “Where better to do that than in sports? All these millions of girls that play sports across the country, we’re teaching them great things about life skills, but wouldn’t it be great if we could teach them to watch how women lead?”

...
“When you look at men’s basketball, 99 percent of the jobs go to men, why shouldn’t 100 or 99 percent of the jobs in women’s basketball go to women?” she said. “Maybe it’s because we only have 10 percent women athletic directors in Division I. People hire people who look like them. That’s the problem.”


Does she even understand that she is doing the same thing she is protesting by discriminating against men who are qualified?



The UConn staff seems to get it...
Auriemma’s leading recruiter for 34 seasons has been the associate head coach, Chris Dailey. While building teams that won 11 N.C.A.A. titles at Connecticut, Dailey has been offered countless head coaching jobs, but she stayed to sustain the Huskies’ success.

“Women can be empowered by a lot of people, men included,” Dailey said after McGraw spoke on Thursday. “Opportunity for women is important, and it’s being brought to the forefront, which is amazing. But I do think you want good people in the game without excluding anyone.”

If it wasn’t for title 9 it wouldn’t be an issue. The only reason she has a league to work in is because the law forces it and sucks the profit off the men’s leagues to subsidize it.
