ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Black Coaches and Administrators organization has updated its annual hiring report card for college football head coaching jobs and found the same percentage of Division I schools received an A grade as last year.

The report originally released Nov. 15 gave A's to 55 percent of the programs evaluated in the 2010-11 hiring cycle. That was down from 59 percent the previous year. But the BCA said Tuesday that it had updated several grades. The result is that now 59 percent of the schools received A's.

The BCA overall cited encouraging progress in the inclusivity of hiring processes in the report, done in conjunction with The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida.
