Apparently, it just dawned on a few folks that the NCAA’s proposal to expand FBS coaching staffs to 10 members means the big boys are set to raid other coaching staffs to get theirs.
Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby, chairman of the NCAA’s football oversight committee, and Todd Berry, executive director of the American Football Coaches Association, acknowledged that 130 teams hiring a coach when staffs are typically set could create an inconvenience for schools that lose assistants.
Still, they say it is not worth waiting.
“(The committee has) talked about it at length. Tell me if you think it’s less disruptive if it’s Aug. 1, Dec. 1 or Jan. 15?” Bowlsby told the Associated Press Thursday. “There’s going to be disruption no matter when it goes into effect.”
Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “coaching season”, doesn’t it?
