COWBOYS DEAL WITH NAACP -- ADD MINORITY EXECUTIVE
Published November 29, 1994
The Cowboys, accused by the NAACP of not hiring minorities to help run the team, will hire at least one African-American to their front office. The person will most likely serve as a director of community relations. The Cowboys and NAACP will hold a joint news conference today to announce the agreement. The NAACP had asked the team to "create a trio of vice president positions for African-Americans in three areas: community affairs, player relations, and minority procurement and diversity" (Price & Fisher, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/29).
