    Getting drafted into the NFL : measuring the efficiency of NCAA football coaches by McDermott, Eamonn

    NCAA football currently serves as a minor league feeder system for the NFL. College football coaches are some of the highest, if not the highest paid officials, at their respective schools. With salaries in the millions, coaches are expected to be able to execute numerous responsibilities for their universities and players. One of the reasons why student-athletes pick certain universities is because of the coaching and development they will receive. But do coaches have any impact on getting their players drafted into the NFL? By looking at data from 2003-2013 almost 30,000 student-athletes were measured by 232 coaches. The results of this study show that coaches do in fact have positive, negative and no effect on getting their student-athletes drafted into the NFL.
