Should There be an NCAA Rule Against Hiring Coaches Until After the Season?Posted by Buckeye Backer on 12/4/12 at 2:59 pm
Should there be an NCAA policy that you can not hire a coach until after the season is over? It just lacks charachter to me. Look at how many teams are screwed out of good coach. The players are the ones that get the shaft. I just have a problem with coaches leaving their teams weeks before their bowl games. Wisconsin, Kent State, Arkansas St, N Illinois, Florida St ect all just lost coaches. What do you guys think?

So, they have to stay where they are and coach the bowl game. Then they can be interviewed and hired with just a few weeks to go until NLOID.
Either way one school gets screwed. The sooner you cut ties the sooner the new coaches can begin recruiting for their new school and buttoning up recruits that are already on board. Beliema is an idiot if he wants to stay to coach the Rose Bowl at Wisconsin. That's just stupid.

I see both sides, which is a potential problem with "early signing" periods locking kids in. If the coach leaves, kids are screwed, but the kids can't leave
I also understand that, for example, Smart leaving Bama could really hurt them in the NCG. I think LSU had a coach leaving in 2007 before the NCG, which didn't hurt them giving OSU sucked donkey balls in that game
