I hate focusing on color in anything, but the NFL has more black than white athletes, and these kids are given a lot of money all of a sudden. I think there is an advantage in having a black head coach if he embraces the "father/mentor" role in helping develop character. Most of these kids are from broken homes.

Coach Flores --- On what goes into signing Williams, who wasn’t drafted for off-field issues: Team does a lot of research on every prospect. “People forget the fact these guys are just kids. I remember being a 21-, 22-, 23-year-old, I didn’t make the best decisions.” Adds, “I take great pride in trying to help these young guys.”

Good luck being a "daddy" to this guy. He had good mentorship from ex-Canes HC Mark Richt.

Walton, 22, is currently facing a felony weapons charge after he allegedly fled police with a gun and marijuana. In separate incidents, Walton had been alleged to snatch a phone and possess marijuana.

Obviously the Dolphins feel they can help the players, in the same way they believe the players can help the organization.
