I thought Gregg Easterbrook has an interesting spin on how the NCAA should deal with this (of course, this would only apply if they weren't all about the money, instead of actually caring about the student-athletes they supposedly hold in their best interests):
TMQ dislikes that coaches get away with self-serving behavior which would never be tolerated from players. When NCAA football players transfer to a new college, they must sit out a year. There should be an equivalent rule that when an NCAA coach leaves before the expiration of his contract -- Kelly's contract ran two more seasons, though had a buyout clause -- he must sit out a year before starting the next job. This would treat players and coaches equally, while reducing the temptation for weasels like Kelly to become promise-breakers.

So does he have to quit a year before a job opens?
Or does the new place have to go a year without a coach?
