Re: Around the League
Sign with the school, not the coach.
Daly’s case is one of the very rare waivers I’d be okay with. He did his sit out year, and then his coach was fired. In that situation, no harm done.
One other thing I’d like to see is a four-year scholarship guarantee if a player signs an NLI. If a kid wants to transfer, okay, but no more coaches running kids out of town because they aren’t quite up to snuff. If a player is meeting the academic and program requirements, he should be able to ride it all the way out.
Recruiting evaluations and mutual commitment need to matter. Players aren’t slabs of pasta slung against the wall by al dente-gauging line cooks.
