The Rooney Bill, passed Friday by the Oregon House and now moving along in the Senate, will require universities in the state to use affirmative action laws when hiring new sports coaches.
Previously, schools were allowed to violate state affirmative action laws in order to speed up the hiring process.
Sam Sachs, who has pushed for passage of the bill, says that this is necessary because of the continued disparity in hiring of sports coaches
The bill was originally written to apply to football coaches in the state, but was expanded to include all college sports coaches.
