What percentage of NBA coaches are black?

With the number reaching 13, nearly half of the NBA's head coaches are Black, placing the league far ahead of other major North American professional sports with respect to diversity.

On the 30 NBA team rosters, 46.8 percent of assistant coaches are Black, while just 20 percent (six out of 30) of full-time head coaches are Black. That number rises to 23.3 percent when you include Atlanta Hawks interim head coach Nate McMillan, who replaced Lloyd Pierce (also Black) after Pierce was fired Monday.

There have been roughly 260 different coaches in the NBA, excluding short-term interim fill-ins, since Russell was hired, and 1 out of 3 of those coaches have been Black.
