The Coaching Wire: Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013

Update 3:12 pm EST.
- NCAA: The NCAA passed 25 of 26 proposed rule changes as part of its effort to streamline the Division I rulebook and move toward “a more flexible manual based on common sense.” The changes eliminate some rules (such as prohibitions on texting recruits and regulations of printed recruiting materials) and adds others (schools can pay for medical expenses and can’t scout opponents in person). The only proposal that did not pass was the universal start date of July 1 before a prospect’s junior year for off-campus contact, which was tabled for further discussion in April. The rule changes go into effect August 1, 2013. You can read the full list of rule changes here, and a Q&A with NCAA President Mark Emmert here.
- Wisconsin: The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents has approved contracts for incoming football coach Gary Andersen and his offensive and defensive coordinators. Andersen will be paid $10 million over five years. He’ll make $1.8 million in 2013, and then get $100,000 raises in each of the next four years. Offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda both received a two-year deal worth $480,000 per year. That’s $215,000 more than their predecessors made last year.
- Miami (Fla.): Hurricane offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch has been hired by the Jacksonville Jaguars for the same position. Fisch has been offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Miami the past two seasons. He was the quarterbacks coach in Seattle in 2010, where he worked with new Jaguars coach Gus Bradley. His NFL experience includes stints with the Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, and Minnesota Vikings.
