New NCAA Recruiting Rule Limits Head Coaches In-Waiting

An NCAA rule adopted 1-16-10 applies all recruiting limitations currently reserved for head coaches to head coaches in-waiting.  It covers any FBS assistants publicly designated to become the next head coach.  According to Chip Brown, this rule was proposed by the Sun Belt Big East Conference and has definitely caught Texas off guard.  The only other major program currently affected is Maryland, since FSU's, Kentucky's, and Purdue's new coaches have already taken the top position.

This is obviously a serious hit for Muschamp on the recruiting trail, not the least of which limits him to the same single in-home visit as Mack.  Really, any school would be hurt by removing a coach from such a critical task.  What's left to determine is UT's next action on the matter.  Will they be allowed to un-designate Muschamp as successor?  Is there some loophole UT's lawyer's can dig up?  I just heard about this from Ketchum and Brown on 104.9 this afternoon, so please provide any additional details if available.  The link below is an OB message board post listing the rule (possibly a draft), but that's all I could find for now.
