Hope coach makes sure he didn't cross the line with the NFL or an agent

Coach is smart but the rules are complex, here's just the highlights:

NCAA rules forbid student-athletes to agree, orally or in writing, to be represented by an agent or organization in the marketing of his or her athletic ability or reputation until after the completion of the last intercollegiate contest, including postseason games.

The NCAA prohibition includes an agreement that is not effective until after the last game.

NCAA rules forbid a student-athlete or his/her representative from negotiating or signing a playing contract in any sport in which the athlete intends to compete, or to market the name or image of the athlete.

NCAA rules forbid a student-athlete to ask to be placed on a professional draft list, whether or not the athlete withdraws his or her name before the draft, whether or not the athlete is actually drafted and whether or not the athlete signs a professional contract.
