Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio spoke Tuesday about racism in America and compared it to what he's seen in the NFL.
"I think our problems in the NFL along those lines are minimal. We're a league of meritocracy, you earn what you get, you get what you earn. I don't see racism at all in the NFL, I don't see discrimination in the NFL," Fangio said, according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold.
Fangio has been coaching in the NFL since 1986 - aside from the one year he spent as the defensive coordinator at Stanford in 2010. He made the slow climb from position coach to defensive coordinator before landing his first head coaching job with the Broncos in 2019.
The 61-year-old said he'd like to see people of different races coexist in society much like they do in football.
"We all live together, joined as one, for one common goal, and we all intermingle and mix tremendously," he said. "If society reflected an NFL team, we'd all be great."
