Coaches group proposes multiple ‘National Signing Days’ for college football

Jayne Kamin-Oncea/USA TODAY Sports

Is the current National Signing Day formula about to see a major revolution? If one proposal succeeds, the recruiting world is on course for big changes.

The American Football Coaches Association proposed Wednesday a shift to multiple signing days.

If that proposal is adopted, the results will have a wide-ranging effect on recruiting. Currently, recruits can sign letters of intent to play college football on the first Wednesday in February, which this year is February 1.

Discussions about changes to the current signing day format are not new, but the AFCA’s endorsement likely will intensify those debates.

Several SEC coaches, including Nick Saban of Alabama and Barry Odom of Missouri, have expressed opposition to changes in the current system.
