NFL assistant coaches may want to form a union
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:
NFL assistant coaches are considering unionizing because they believe that team owners have stripped them of benefits.
NFL Coaches Association executive director Larry Kennan, a former assistant coach, said Friday that a letter was sent to the group's representatives on all 32 teams urging them to "explore the possibility" of a union. By doing so, assistant coaches could gain negotiating rights they do not have as an association.
