Delany seeking the power to fire coaches

Apparently the Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany is pushing a proposal that would give him authority to fire coaches of member institutions.

Think about that for a second. Sound insane? We think so too. 

According to the article from The Chronicle of Higher Education, the plan would give Delany and and a powerful committee of conference presidents the power to "penalize individual members of an institution, should their actions significantly harm the league’s reputation."

Now, we don't have all the facts at this time, but this sounds ridiculous. Here is the original article to take a look for yourself.

Why would any university give an outside entity the power / authority to terminate contracts? 

Comments are welcomed below or on Twitter (@FootballScoop); but this one just makes absolutely no sense at all to us.
