In the legal action brought against the NCAA by the states of Tennessee and Virginia, head coach Josh Heupel of Tennessee was named as a defendant. Heupel is a defendant alongside offensive lineman,  Jackson Lamplecoy, founder of Spyre Sports James Clawson, and athletic director Danny White of Tennessee.

Heupel explained the context of NIL in the current college football landscape in a statement that was filed with the courts on Friday. He outlined the challenges of coaching college football under the existing setup, citing uncertainty among all parties involved in the process.

Should Josh Heupel consider going back to Oklahoma if offered?

“The NCAA has ambiguous and complex rules. They occasionally contradict with earlier advice from the NCAA and are often subject to revision. The information recruits receive regarding NIL chances connected to a particular institution is often unreliable and inadequate due to the NIL-recruiting restriction. Athletes want to know about and comprehend their opportunities, but like my colleagues UT coaches, I feel compelled to refrain from helping athletes navigate this challenging climate or addressing NIL opportunities in any way, especially at a high level.
