If HC leaves, then I am all about that.   

I do not like the basketball transfer by law being banted about with no wait time on transfer

Only as long as they declare the transfer immediately to give the original school a chance to account for the departure.  Definitely before the early signing period, and I'd say small window, like within two weeks of the coach fire or resignation.  And as long as the season is complete.  And no way on the sixth season.  Move on with your life.

Hilarious the example by the author states exactly what would not be the case.  OSU player transfers to Mich and wouldn't need Urbans approval to play right away.  Well if he was eligible for the rule, Urban wouldn't be the coach at OSU.

Thought the same exact thing about an OSU transfer. Silly stuff.

I am in favor of allowing players the opportunity and freedom to make personal decisions regarding their futures. I would even let them go with their former coach should they want to. 

I do not think that there would be mass exodus in many cases because many kids make their school choice for reasons other than the head coach. Also potential receiving schools of a newly "free agent" player have limited recruiting resources and limited roster spots available. 

How about a hypothetical where coaches have to face a similar rule for changing schools? I know it would never happen but what if Texas A&M could hire Jimbo but he couldn't officially serve as the head coach until after a year under an interim.

I would agree for both those same reasons.  And would add that the players closest relationship is with their position coach which may not always change out with the head coach.

Today coaches are fired extremely quickly at the college level.  This would almost completely reverse this, and you'd see a lot of schools keeping head coaches, even as puppets at  schools to prevent an exodus.  You'll see coordinators now hired and fired left and right instead.

I don't think that this would make much of a difference. We are living in a world where Kevin Sumlin just received a 10 million dollar buy to get out of dodge. In the current climate of major college sports I think the administration would be quite fine letting both coach and players leave just to move on to something new and put their imprint on the change.
