Student-athletes no longer need permission from schools to transfer

NCAA announces transfer, redshirt rule changes

Division I Eliminates Permission-to-Contact Transfer Process

Once the name is in the database, other coaches can contact that student.

Previously, only players who did not play a snap in a season or were sidelined by injury before playing in more than four games were generally granted redshirts by the NCAA.

It will begin this fall, with the 2018 season, wiping away the need for schools to petition the NCAA for a medical redshirt if a player had already played in a game. The new process allows the athlete to notify his current school of his desire to transfer and will then require the school to enter the student's name into a database within two business days of the request.

Raptors pick assistant Nick Nurse as new head coach
He won a pair of championships in the British Basketball League in 1996 and 2000, as well as D-League titles in 2011 and 2013. On Tuesday, reports surfaced announcing the Raptors had settled on assistant coach Nick Nurse as their next head man.

It also adds tampering with a current student-athlete at another school to the list of potential NCAA Level 2 violations, which is considered a significant breach of conduct.

With the rule change, schools can't prevent specific programs from contacting a transferring student-athlete.

Nicholas Clark, a former football player at Coastal Carolina and a student representative on the council, said the change promotes fairness and the well-being of college athletes.

The NCAA's Division I Council approved the new rule this week.

Beginning in October, Division I student-athletes will have the ability to transfer to a different school and receive a scholarship without asking their current school for permission.

However, under the new system, individual conferences can agree on their own transfer rules - like mandating time off of competion when an athlete transfers within his or her conference.

Behind that cold front, overnight lows will get back into the 60s for Monday night into early Tuesday morning. Tonight - Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly before midnight, with some of the storms possibly severe.

This new rule comes following a recommendation from the NCAA's 19-member Division I Transfer Working Group, who studied, researched and debated the issue for six months. "This will clean the process up and give more influence and flexibility to the student-athlete". "It's a positive for our student-athletes to be afforded the opportunity to get some limited game experience without penalizing them". As of now, schools can not cut off an athlete's financial aid based on intent to transfer at the end of a term - but the NCAA will vote on two different proposals that would allow institutions to end aid after an athlete's intent to transfer has been made clear. Now, coaches will be able to use a true freshman on a limited basis in up to four games and that player would still have four years of additional eligibility. "Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressure to play through injuries", NCAA Division I Council chairperson and Miam athletic director Blake James said in an NCAA statement.
