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).Slippery slope. I’m of the opinion that if the HC leaves before you’re on campus, you have the option to void your LOI and sign somewhere else. It’s ridiculous this happens after signing day. Nebraska did it right, and then got their hire right.
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.
