When did the NFL begin hiring non-white NFL employees?

The New York Jets are still hiring for the position of assistant football coach, but the New York Post is reporting that the team is now hiring for its full-time position as an assistant coach.

The post cites two sources, one of which is a person familiar with the hiring process, as saying that the position is being filled at a rate of 10 to 12 per year.

The Jets are expected to hire a new head coach at some point in 2017.

ESPN reported in October that the Jets were interested in hiring former Clemson defensive coordinator Kirby Smart for their full-timers. 

The NFL said at the time that the NFLPA was reviewing the hiring of assistant coaches. 

A league spokesman told ESPN that it had no comment on the Post report.
