Rick SmithNASHVILLE, Tenn. – NFL rules require the Titans to interview two persons of color or women for their open general manager slot. Rod Graves, executive director of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, intends to offer himself as a resource to the franchise for finding those two candidates.

The alliance champions diversity in the NFL through education and works as a resource for member scouts, coaches and front-office personnel. It’s named after the first African-American NFL coach.

“I’ll be reaching out to the Titans relatively soon for assistance with the process,” Graves said.

He has a list of 36 candidates, 32 who are currently working in the NFL and four who are currently inactive.
