Does the NCAA Coaching Carousel Hamper the Professional Prospects of College Football Recruits?
College football recruits choose their schools partly for the opportunity to play for a specific coach. It is not unusual for the coach who recruited the player to leave before the end of the playerâ€™s career. This article investigates whether these departures affect a playerâ€™s National Football League (NFL) draft prospects. Regression results indicate that, for players drafted, a coaching change drops the average drafteeâ€™s position nearly two thirds of a round, potentially costing the player hundreds of thousands of dollars in guaranteed money. This harmful effect holds regardless of why the coach left, such as being fired or accepting a new position elsewhere.
