What I'd like to see is, if a school hires a coach under contract, all players at the hiring school can transfer without penalty. This may make the hiring school think twice about hiring someone who is currently under contract as it could delay the rebuilding process if half the players leave.
It's not a bad idea. The musical chairs that is going on with coaches these days is getting to be ridicilous.
I think signing day should be moved back as well, and there should be an NCAA rule that coaches cannot interview for other positions until their current teams season is complete, regular season + bowl game. If you violate the rule, the coach is suspended for 1 year, and the program that interviews them loses schollys. Coaches campainging for new jobs during the regular season needs to stop.
