    Marist lawsuit & coaching change

    Marist MBB coach took a new job & took some recruits with him.

    A clause in his contract said he could not do that.
    They took the coach to court and won. This is and interesting read.

    Sorry CF if this is the wrong board for this, but this could impact ISU when Fred retires in 25 years.

    This court decision is good for college basketball. A coach should not be able to do what this former Marist (now James Madison) coach did. Just wrong.

    A guy from my high school played there too in the late 90's. First I had ever heard of Marist. This fact is also fun.

    I went to Marist, as did Rick Smits, two more fun facts.

    Re: Marist lawsuit & coaching change

    you shouldnt be allowed to prevent a coach from taking players that he recruited...he went after those guys because he fit his system..just because he chooses to take a better job doesnt mean he shouldnt be allowed to take his players with him. demarcus cousins is a good example of this. why should he be bound to play for memphis after calipari left. he was going to memphis to play for calipari...after calipari was gone, what motivation did he have to stay there or compete at a high level for that school.

    I think this decision will have a lot less impact than people think. Coaches usually have more leverage in these things. College athletics, as a whole, needs to recognize that athletes are committing to coaches, not schools. I doubt that we'll start seeing this as any sort of standard clause in coaching contracts.

    If the coach doesn't like it, he can take it up when the contract is written. If it is in the contract, it should be enforceable. And, according to this court case, it is.

    As long as a contract doesn't require any illegal activities, it's valid. And nothing about this decision would say that a player like Cousins would be required to "stay there or compete at a high level for that school." He's free to transfer. There's nothing unjust about that clause. If the coach had a problem with that provision, he had the right to negotiate. He also has the option to not take a different job. He wasn't fired. He chose to leave. If anything, the coach knew he couldn't recruit those guys away if he left, yet he recruited them with one foot already out the door. If he didn't tell the players about the contract he agreed to, he's the one acting inappropriately.
