ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A new study of the racial and gender makeup of leadership and coaching positions among the Football Bowl Subdivision membership shows it remains largely white and male.
The report Wednesday by the Institute for the Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida says that 100 percent of FBS conference commissioners, 76 percent of school president positions, and 84 percent of athletic director positions are currently held by white men.
The report shows a decline in the percentage of women in campus leadership positions with a slight increase in the representation of people of color, especially for Latinos and Asians.
There were 18 minority FBS head coaches to begin the season, down from an all-time high of 19 last year.
