Robert Saleh: Changing New York Jets Football

On Thursday night, New York Jets fans got a huge piece of hope as the organization hired former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, one of the most passionate coaches in the NFL as well as a defensive mastermind. Saleh spent 2017-2020 as the defensive coordinator of the 49ers where he lead two top ten defenses and also led a dominant defense to a Super Bowl appearance in 2019-2020, although they lost. This news is also very important because of the fact that Saleh is the first Muslim head coach in NFL history and will continue to try to break barriers.

From a football standpoint, I love this hiring for the Jets and I think he will be a great head coach and leader. Saleh is a young, passionate, and smart head coach who will bring a different energy to this team and organization. After having a mediocre coach like Adam Gase who the players did not respect or like, Saleh will be refreshing as he was known very well around the league for having a great relationship with his players and passionately cheering for their accomplishments nonstop.

Stopping Subconscious Bias in Sports is Something We All Need to Work on

There is no doubt that there is racism and bias in sports. Every single day, players face the harsh reality that they are often treated differently based on their race, religion, and/or sexual orientation. I believe that no matter how much we try to combat this issue in sports, there will always be some level of subconscious bias. No amount of education and punishment can completely eradicate the discrimination our country faces, but it is a good place to start.
