Seems like NCAA is voting in April to ban these types of moves with prospective players to coaches to get hired by that schoool that's trying to sign a recruit. Michigan has been exhausting this type of rule for years and they are at it again with two more players most notably Michael Johnson Junior. Good thing Miami made that hire with the South Ridge coach before this was set in stone. What do you guys think about this rule change?

They just need to make the break at the FBS level, and go with about 70 schools. Leave the rules as-is for them, and drop the other 50 programs to FCS.

At this point, they're attempting to change rules to protect the lower level programs. And they're better off letting those programs just compete against similar programs ... including FCS teams.

It's already in effect in basketball. And if the coach is brought on, it has to be an on court or recruiting coordinator gig, or something like that. None of these "advisory" bullshit positions that Michigan and the sister fuckers have a ton of.

Agree with this!

The idea is that you won't be able to hire 97 members as support staff (Baez and Cooney for us) from different high schools, the high school coach would have to fill an assistant coach role (9 allowed currently, 10 in the near future). This affects basketball more so as they only have 3 or 4 assistant positions. It still allows HS coaches to move to the college ranks but not as support staff (would have to be Rumph type hire vs. Cooney type hire).

How is a HS coach suppose to move up the ranks into college?

lol like they always have. now you cant push a player to a school and get a job as a reward

It supposedly affect if that school is recruiting a player from the the same school same year that tha player is attending. It would violate NCAA rules if they suddenly hired that coach and signed any of his players that year.

So is this a rule to limit support staff? Otherwise how do they enforce the "prospect coach" part of the equation?

I get the outrage in some cases, but not with this last harbaugh one. The Dad coached Harbaugh when he was in the league. They had a relationship before the kid was even born.

Michigan was trying to hire the father of a top 2019 QB from California, Michael Johnson Jr, but Oregon swooped in & hired the dad Michael Johnson Sr instead.

Harbaugh got beat at his own game... But he's done that before, he hires the high school Coach or the parent of a top recruit, just to land the kid.

DJ Durkin did the same thing at Maryland with McFarland.

He can start at a major school as a grad assistant, especially if he's a young coach.
Otherwise, he can log some years at a JUCO, smaller division schools or, if he's really that good he
can be worth a spot on a Div1 school ala Art Briles, Jeremy Pruitt or Chad Morris.
