New SCORE initiative seeks more access for Black coaches in college soccer
The Soccer Collective On Racial Equity (SCORE) released an initiative on Wednesday that aims to expand access and increase representation among Black soccer coaches at the collegiate level.
Dubbed the Clive Charles Diversity Hiring Initiative after the legendary University of Portland and U.S. men's national team assistant coach, the effort is an opt-in pledge by Division I men's soccer programs to include Black candidates in their pool for coaching vacancies. The initiative's aim is to ensure equal opportunity in the hiring of coaches and to address the barriers that have faced underrepresented minority groups.
