Penalties for Weasel Coaches

I've had enough of vile coaches who go in to a school, break a bunch of rules just to win a lot of games and then when the NCAA turns up the heat, they bolt, only to leave the school to suffer the consequences. Does the name Pete Carroll mean anything to anyone? But he is not unique, this has been a problem for decades. It is time for the NCAA to take a stand. Obviously, they can't penalize the coaches who have left since they have no jurisdiction over them, but there are things they can do.

I think if the findings of the NCAA result in penalties being imposed on a school, that same penalty ought to follow the responsible coach and any of his staff that are implicated to where ever they may land on the college scene. For instance, let's say that in five years, Pete Carroll decides to leave the Seahawks to coach at let's say, ummmmm, Tennessee for instance. That thought actually makes my head spin, but let's say that Tennessee is unhappy with Derek Dooley and want to hire Pete for the job of head coach. The team hiring Pete would immediately incur the same sanctions that USC incurred as a result of Pete's ethics at USC and are banned from bowls for two years. The hiring school will want  to have him really bad to make that decision, won't they?

It won't be impossible for them to get a coaching job, but it could affect the compensation they get and the quality of school that would hire them. I couldn't see a team that is in serious bowl contention hiring them, but a school who wants to turn their program around might.

I'd like to know what your opinions are on this subject.
