RE: Proposal to let athletes transfer instantly after a coaching change picks up steam
The latest from the NCAA--

The working group is not considering — and never entertained — a model that would allow all student-athletes to transfer and compete immediately. Member schools noted that such a rule change would not lead to more student-athletes achieving academic success and graduating.

However, the Working Group did not dismiss the Big 12’s rule allowing players a free release after a coaching change. It is also considering endorsing an expansion of the graduate transfer rule for certain high-achieving undergrads:

Some exceptions now under consideration include:

--Allow students who meet specific, high-achieving academic benchmarks to play immediately after the first time they transfer during their college experience.

--Allow prospective student-athletes who have signed a National Letter of Intent to transfer and play immediately if a head coach leaves the school of the student’s choice, as well as under other exceptions already in the rulebook. Because the Collegiate Commissioners Association manages the NLI, this idea would be referred to the CCA for consideration.

Have to imagine the "free release" is serving both sides. There will never be a fix to the "not my kid" thing unless schools fully commit to the recruits. They said they were going to, then backed out. Shocking.
