This thesis will investigate the existence of racial biases in the National Basketball Association by examining the probability of African-American head coaches being separated from their assignments, conditional on several factors, for the last twenty-three regular seasons. The research is widely descriptive, and tends to determine whether racial bias has existed in the separations of African-American head coaches in the NBA. Comprehensive analysis of the most significant factors that affect the coaches’ tenure in the league is performed. Based on the estimated results, recommendations are offered on current policies to continue reducing any racial bias in the NBA, to not only emphasize the current situation, but to create additional and specific bases for future studies.
