I mean, it's a supply/demand problem that has a major supply problem.
They aren't rewarding teams to let go of minority assistants, they are incentivizing teams to HIRE more assistants so they actually have minority assistants to let go of
Your comment predisposes that there are a lot of minority assistants to begin with. There aren't.
You don't build Rome in a day. If the NFL wants things to change they need to incentivize more assistants to get hired and this does that, increasing the HC minority candidate pool and allow minorities to develop.
It's wrong to give draft picks for hiring a minority HC. That should be on merit. And the minority candidate would probably feel the same way. The current incentive is enough as an "icing on the cake" to a quality candidate.
I think this system is pretty well thought out without creating perverse incentives. The NFL probably hired some sort of economic firm to create this.
