I’ve seen it at the HS level and can’t imagine the damage to a college team

When I lived in Florida, our local HS hired a big dog coach from Tallahassee with a history of success to turn the football program around. He brought a son who was going into his junior year year, another son 4 years younger, and another 4 years behind the middle boy. Guess whose sons played QB for 10 straight years?? They were pretty good and the teams were successful ( one trip to state championship game and two trips to state semis) but it caused a lot of drama.

I can’t imagine all the problems it creates for a college team. That’s a much more complex dynamic. A HC should think really hard before signing his own son, especially at QB.
