Huddersfield manager Chris Powell says he would back introducing a similar approach to NFL's 'Rooney Rule' in a bid to introduce more black coaches and managers into English football.
Only two out of the 92 professional clubs in the English Football League are black, with Powell at the Terriers and Keith Curle at Carlisle United.
FA chairman Greg Dyke has revealed a group has been looking into what can be done to address the problem with the NFL's 'Rooney Rule', which states American football teams must interview at at least one black or ethnic minority candidate when hiring a head coach, being considered.
Speaking to TalkSport, Powell believes adopting such a rule, or something similar to it, is worth analysing.
He said: "I think there’s an avenue we can go down, not entirely the Rooney rule, but I think there’s an avenue we can go down because people get despondent.
"Black coaches and ethnic miniority coaches do get despondent. I’ve spoken to them, I’ve had chats with them in the summer at St George's Park. There’s a lot of work going on at the FA and at the PFA but there’s a long way to go.
"I just feel the Premier League, the Football League, the PFA and the LMA, they all have to – if they’re serious about it – get around the table and see what route is best for us in the UK."
