Florida Head Coach Jim McElwain Says He Would Never Fine His Players

Earlier today, images leaked of the fine structure that was in place at Virginia Tech. The Hokies coach staff was apparently set to fine players for various transgressions, many minor like having a dirty dorm or locker. Cincinnati's Tommy Tuberville has also expressed interest in fining his players out of their cost of attendance stipend. Will Florida be jumping in on what, in our opinion, would be an awful trend? Absolutely not.

Fining players would prove to be a P.R. disaster for programs, and would invite plenty of negative recruiting. Expect many other coaches to come out against the practice in the coming days.
