ORLANDO — A new wave of college football head-coaching candidates is going to school this weekend.

Seven African-American coaches, including three former NFL players, were participating Friday in The Champion Forum, the top tier of the NCAA’s coaching academy, during a weeklong convention of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics.

The academy is part of the NCAA’s effort to increase the number of “ethnic minorities” in head coaching positions at the 583 institutions with football teams. The primary message being delivered this year is that today’s head coach does more than teach blocking and tackling.

The responsibilities include fundraising and budgeting; media, alumni and booster relations; compliance considerations and managing a large staff.
