          NFL: Commissioner Paul Tagliabue contributed an op-ed
     in Sunday's N.Y. TIMES on the league's goal of "sound equal
     employment policies."  Tagliabue: "All of us in football --
     professional and college -- must do better in identifying
     top coaching talent from a diverse, growing pool, including
     African-Americans and those from other minority groups."  He
     challenged NFL owners and collegiate execs to "be innovative
     in their approaches to finding and developing coaching
     talent" (Paul Tagliabue, N.Y. TIMES, 1/4).
