A little more intriguing information regarding the three examples I gave......one of the provisions specifically stated in the NLI:
19. If Coach Leaves. I understand I have signed this NLI with the institution and not for a particular sport or individual. If the coach leaves the institution or the sports program, I remain bound by the provisions of this NLI. I understand it is not uncommon for a coach to leave his or her coaching position.
If you ask me, that's pretty clearly spelled out. So a message to the recruits: You're going to college to become educated and to play basketball, just because a coach leaves doesn't mean you can't learn or play basketball.
