NCAA Board of Directors Rescind Ban on Division I Football Coaches Working “Satellite” Camps

Breaking News

Yesterday, the NCAA Board of Directors rescinded the ban on Division I football coaches working “satellite” camps.

From the NCAA press release, “The Board’s action means the camps and clinics rule currently legislated is in effect and football coaches may be employed at any camp that follows Division I camps and clinics rules.”

Those of you who follow college football recruiting probably saw media reports a few weeks ago about the NCAA Council voting to ban Division I football coaches from working “Satellite” camps (camps owned by outside entities where the coach is a guest speaker or instructor).

The rule received much media attention with southern region universities wanting to keep northern coaches such as Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh from working camps in the south.

Don’t be surprised to see coaches from southern football programs like Nick Saban and Les Miles appearing at camps in the region of Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania this summer!!
