I could live with that exception as well but I think some of this has to be on the school (firing a coach) and some needs to be on the kids signing (coach transfers). It's not 100% fair, but nothing is. If you (and likely your parents/handlers/HC football coach, etc...) didn't realize you signed up to play for a dbag that was going to ditch you before you stepped on campus, some of that is on you. If we had a "before you're on campus" exception, I think it would change when coaches quit (which is a good thing). But there are ~65 other scholarship kids on the team and they need to be looked at as well, IMO.
