New Transfer and Red Shirt Rules for CFB

How the new transfer and redshirt rules will impact college football

Transfers may now leave without asking their current school for permission. Under this new “notification-of-transfer” model, student-athletes will have their names entered into a national database, and coaches from other programs can then reach out to gauge interest.

In other words, the power now rests in the right hands: with the student-athlete, not the program which previously had the option of placing stringent and unfair limits on which schools the transfer could consider.

The second rule is nearly groundbreaking in how it reforms the redshirt standard. Previously, players were given five years to complete four seasons of eligibility – meaning one of those seasons had to be spent without participating in any games, often during a student-athlete’s first year on campus.

The same four-in-five timeline exists, only with a catch: Players can now participate in up to four games in a season and still retain that year of eligibility, a change that promotes “fairness for college athletes,” said Miami (Fla.) athletics director Blake James, chair of the Division I Council.
