Coaches aren’t happy with rule change

This much we know: The new overtime rules for the playoffs didn’t have the support among coaches that it did with ownership.

The group is even less pleased with how the rule change was voted on. Coaches don’t have a vote, but they expected to be in the room when the vote happened.

It was originally set for Wednesday, but ownership quick-snapped the vote while coaches participated in a golf tournament Tuesday.

Jay Glazer tweets: “Coaches and execs were supposed to be in the room. It was supposed to be done tomorrow, not today. These coaches are beside themselves.”

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen says there is precedent for such a plan.

“This is what happened when 2-point conversion passed; it’s an end-around with the procedure by voting this afternoon instead of Wednesday,” Mortensen tweeted.
