    Stephen A. Smith on ESPN First Take said, "The Arizona Cardinals fired a black coach, Steve Wilks after only 1 season. They didn't even give the man a chance. Then what did they do? Did they go hire and look for an experienced coach? NO! Did they consider any black coaches? NO! They went out and hired a white coach from a Texas Tech in Kliff Kinsberry who didn't even have a winning record."
    He went on to repeat it after the break how the Cardinals organization is racist

    His rant about not enough black coaches started with a quote from today where Jerry Jones stated that Jason Garret would be coaching in the NFL next year.

    Stephen made it about race and why there aren't more black coaches, only 1 black GM (in Miami - and he said he's doing a great job by trading for picks) and no black owners.

    Interesting first take for the morning

    Stephen A is an idiot. If the Cardinals were a racist organization they wouldn’t have been the first to hire a black GM (Green) and they wouldn’t have hired Wilks last year.

    His head will implode when VJ is let go at the end of the season!!!

    Never mind our track record, don't let facts get in the way of his rant -- afterall, Wilkes has proven his brilliance, he has built a "dominating" defense over in CLE.

    The Cardinals may be a dysfunctional franchise, but they certainly are not a racist one.

    I don't even know who Kliff Kinsberry is & I'm pretty sure we didn't hire him.

    Amazing how this claim comes up when the black DC for the cards is on a very hot seat, and rightfully so, what a joke this isn't 1950 , do your job well nobody cares about the color of your skin.

    The biggest reason he has a job is because he's a black dude.

    This is old news, is it not? Wasn't this complaint made more than a few times?

    Steve Wilks was a horrible coach and is proving that again in Cleveland. It was not because of his skin color, it was because he is a PROVEN poor coach.

    You wanna be pissed there are not more black coaches in the NFL?

    Go talk to the coaches and tell them to do better.

    Its 2019, not 1990. If you can win football games the NFL will hire you and pay you.

    Steven A. Smith is doing more harm then good in regards to this issue with his ignorant "hot take".

    You guys are right. He is setting the stage and will go even more ballistic if we fire Joseph.

    If he actually said “white boy” he should be suspended.

    And then they want out and drafted a black qb number one overall? I mean I know the Cards have been inept but to not even be able to get being racist right?

    There is nothing interesting at all about this "first take." Just a loud-mouth douchebag trying to get attention, who obviously knows nothing about the history of this team, or, apparently, how awful Wilks was last year.
