DALLAS, Oct. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Former NFL cornerback James Hasty is working to eliminate biases and racial disparity in sports hiring through his new search firm, Eneje (pronounced IN-N-JAY) Consulting, and a proprietary candidate evaluation tool called the Coaching Performance Assessment System (CPAS).

Eneje is the first African American-owned search firm to work exclusively in the sports industry. Hasty founded Eneje to help ensure more diversity and inclusion in sports.

"On the field and court, some of the most lauded athletes are among the most underrepresented groups in the coaching and management of collegiate and professional organizations," Hasty said. "We're here to change that."

Among Eneje's supporters are key NFL figures like former player and Fritz Pollard Alliance Chairman John Wooten, who led the nonprofit that champions diversity in the NFL from its 2003 inception until his 2019 retirement.

"Eneje can be a great spoke in the wheel for diversity and inclusion in the NFL," Wooten said. "There is more work to be done, and I believe Hasty can make a huge difference in working with the NFL for candidates of all races and backgrounds."
