Can there please be a rule


Recommended Posts

That says if you recruit a kid and he signs with your school, you then can't hire a family member to a job at the school.

 

shouldn't this be along lines of company nepotism? or companies not hiring other family members?

 

I think no one would ever get hired then.

 

Most job leads come from a personal connection... that's the power of the ND network (extended family / brand). If the person is deemed qualified, the person is qualified.

 

The questions to ask are:

1. Is the person qualified

2. Is there a conflict-of-interest (personal enrichment) related to the hiring.

nepotism comes to mind.

and companies have policies not to hire family members all the time.

 

it smells too much like if your kid signs with us we will hire you too

Again, your connections (family, friends or more distantly, your school affiliations) get you in the door of consideration... then it should be your qualifications.

 

If a committed / signed player "A" is coming to ND.. and mom wants to follow, and she needs a job. Coach may say ... "hey, what are your qualifications? do you have a resume? I hear there's an opening in some places, I'll pass your resume along." The hiring manager looks at the resume ... has 15 candidates who are all qualified, including the recruit's mom... so does it matter who's hired then? The hiring manager gets a qualified worker.

 

It would be ethically problematic if there was retribution against the hiring manager for NOT hiring the player's mom, or if the hiring manager got a "kick-back" or benefit for hiring the player's mom, or if the mom got paid, but didn't have to do anything.

 

The fact that people get hired through help of connections is not suspect in itself.

John Calipari does this I know....while it is obvious that people are hired for their kids talent I'm fine with their not being a rule against it....maybe my son will play for ND one day and I can turn into the Special teams coach we've always wanted

 

OMG! How old is your son and how long do we have to wait for that to happen?
