‘Wondersome’ that Black coaches don’t get second chances in NFL

Former Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis appeared on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel for a segment about why Black coaches aren't getting opportunities to become National Football League head coaches as often as they should.

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis observes during Cincinnati Bengals training camp practice, Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018, at the practice fields next to Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

"You fall into another category along with the Leslie Fraziers of the world, which is an African-American head coach who can't seem to get a second chance when the Adam Gases, the Doug Marrones do get a second chance. Does that hurt?" Gumbel asked Lewis.

"It's wondersome, I guess that's the word I would use," Lewis said. "It makes you question it. You just had Bruce Arians have another opportunity and win the Super Bowl. It's great, but he's obviously a few years older than even I am, but he gets that second opportunity.
