MLS earns marks for diversity

Major League Soccer received an overall grade of B+ for its diversity hiring practices for the second straight year.

The overall grade of 85.4 was up almost a full percentage point than the 84.6 it received last year, according to the annual report released Thursday by The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport (TIDES) at the University of Central Florida.

The league received a B+ for its racial hiring practices. MLS received a B for its gender hiring practices, with a three percent increase from last year.

Richard Lapchick, principal author of the study and director of TIDES, says it shows MLS Commissioner Don Garber's commitment to gender hiring practices.

However, the MLS got a C+ for coaching hires with only two minority coaches among the 20 teams -- Oscar Pareja of the Colorado Rapids and Jose Luis Real of Chivas USA.
