MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — University football coach John Kelley joined the Sportsline for his take on the State Board of Education tabling the proposal to extend the summer practice session.
“I think they made a very wise decision to table it and study it a little bit and see exactly what those who proposed it had in mind,” Kelley said. “This isn’t a ‘victory’ for those who opposed the proposal – I just think it’s a smart move to step back and take a look at it.
“They’re going to do this very carefully and that’s really what I would like them to do,” he continued. “I’m not saying 100 percent it should never happen, but you had better have some guidelines. I just think the opportunity for abuse was tremendous, but I think with these guys sitting back and looking at it with limitations and rules to follow, maybe we can avoid that and come up with a compromise.”
