Who would want to be a coach in this setting?

The reason there is so much oversight by coaches is that the NCAA rules demand compliance and oversight is the only mechanism. I am certain the “car registration” thing came-up because a player broke a rule and the program was punished. “Hey... New rule, guys!”

The other controls are to meet academic compliance (with NCAA rules), and, of course, if you want ot WIN this is the workout/practice schedule.

I can hear it now, “Jones, take the field!” Jones, “Can’t coach. I’ve played in the last series. Shop Rules say you need to put in Smith.”

You watch...

You actually just explained why people would want to coach MORE in this setting. NCAA rules are idiotic and force coaches to do a lot of extra work that results in nothing on the field. When this results in the death of the NCAA coaches will no longer be forced to waste time making sure their players didn’t trade autographs for haircuts.

The NCAA is on its death bed, and their rules demanding players get no compensation, and the way they enforce it frequently vacating wins and punishing players and coaches that weren’t even involved with bowl bans, will kill it. That’s why the super conferences are forming, and players getting a footing to demand some level of compensation puts another nail in the NCAA’s coffin.
