Hate to say this because the rule is actually there for a reason but is abused and made into a sham and situations like this reenforce that thinking, Mayo is only getting an interview here to satisfy the NFL 'Rooney' rule.

Is he a good coach, most likely.
Will he get a shot at moving up, most likely.
Does it hurt that he is getting the interview, even under this guise, probably not.

Let's just be happy one of our former players is thought of enough in the NFL to get an interview for a HC position regardless of the circumstances.
Hell I'd love to see Mayo get it! But come on! Can't these organizations at least PRETEND not to be going through the motions with the Rooney rule? There's way more qualified minority candidates out there I'm sure! How is anyone not considering Eric Bienemy? Have you seen what he's been doing with KC's offense?
