RE: IS IT FAIR?
As the article notes, this rule already exists for college basketball:

Quote:It would mirror a rule already in place for NCAA basketball.

The rule exists to keep teams from paying for recruits and disguising the payment as a job.

It sounds like the explosion of non-coaching staff positions at the wealthiest football programs, like Alabama and Ohio State, has caused people at other programs to suspect that jobs are being handed out as inducements for delivering a player.

Remember that Chip Kelly got into trouble at Oregon (and got a show-cause penalty) for paying a "street agent", giving the guy money allegedly for recruiting reports but really for delivering a recruit to Oregon. Under the current football rules, there was a perfectly legal loophole that Kelly could have used instead: He could have given the street agent a no-work job on the Oregon staff with some official-sounding title.

If they change this rule for football to make it consistent with the basketball rule, that loophole will be closed, which is a good thing.

Think it's fair but.

That said if you watched the 30 on 30 'One and not Done' last night you could see varies examples where calls go against the non blue bloods. At the end of the show they wondered if Memphis won the National Title, would they have gone after Memphis and the NCAA did not prove the case against Memphis.

See UNI vs Texas AtM a couple years ago. UNI held a 15 point lead with less than 2 minutes left and LOST. CBS wanted the OU v AtM sweet 16 matchup and they got it.

The UNLV rule. UNLV hired a winning head high school football coach in Las Vegas.

They can still be hired for one of the nine (soon ten) on-field positions, just not for quality control, director of football operations, recruiting coordinator.

UNI simply didn't know how to run an inbounds play. That was on the coach. They couldn't get the pass inbounds.

I still think it's stupid. For every example of someone abusing the practice for a recruiting advantage (looking at you Harbaugh) there's five where the off-the-field position is an actual entry level position for a high school coach into college coaching. Clemson's new Safeties coach Mickey Conn spent a year as a defensive analyst, Georgia's RB and former Georgia Southern interim HC Dell McGee started as an analyst at Auburn, Olten Downs, current Safeties coach at Georgia Southern started as a quality control coach at UGA.

All this is doing is limiting the opportunities for coaches to advance in their careers. Stupid rule.
