'Historic' black coach hires at Texas, Penn State

FILE - In this Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014 file photo, Texas new head football coach Charlie Strong speaks to fans during a timeout against Oklahoma in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Austin, Texas. There are 125 colleges playing in the top-level Football Bowl Subdivision. In 2013, 13 of them had black coaches. That was down from 15 in 2012 and an all-time high of 17 in 2011. Strong and James Franklin at Penn State have not been replaced by African-Americans, so the overall numbers remain low. (AP Photo/Austin American- Statesman, Ricardo B.
