Would there be any recourse...

for recruits that sign with FU on signing day only to find out days later than UM is stepping down as coach? This is mostly a question for people who have knowledge of the NCAA's policies regarding such things or their historic treatment of it. Also, for NoleLaw and FSUn and other lawyers or law students, as a law student the idea of a detrimental reliance claim and some basic contract principles come to mind, that you in essence can't make these guys a slave to their LOI (which is just essentially an employment at will contract as I understand it) and they have to be given some other option for a way to get out of their contract (granted it might be monetary damages that they would have to pay to FU, in which case I know that many recruits cannot afford to pay any sum to get out of such a deal)? Would they have any shot of getting out of their LOI, or have these things proven to be pretty iron-clad in the past?
