RE: Pat Casey Leaving Montana State for Oklahoma!
but the student-athlete, when signing the NLI and scholarship, is not signing an NLI or scholarship to be coached by some one in particular. They are signing a scholarship to be able to attend a University at a discounted rate in exchange for their performance. it says so right on the NLI.
the coach also signs a contract with the school, and they are bound by the terms of that contract. if it includes buyouts or penalties, then the coach has a choice to make when leaving. just as the kid has a choice to make when deciding to transfer.
the coaches don't sign a contract with the kid, and the kid doesn't sign a contract with the coach.
if one purchases a car because of the salesman instead of the quality of the vehicle, then that was an unwise choice.
equating coaches to athletes is not a fair comparison. coaches don't get paid upfront regardless of how they perform. student-athletes do.
