NCHSAA to meet with coaches about pod system

The N.C. High School Athletic Association will meet on Tuesday with football coaches from the state about the proposed pod playoff system.

According to Rick Strunk, the associate executive director of the NCHSAA, the coaches are being asked to provide feedback, suggestions and ideas about the proposed system. Those ideas would then be brought to the Board of Directors for consideration.

At the spring meeting, the NCHSAA Board of Directors voted to change the current playoff system to a pod playoff system. The change would mean instead of dividing the playoffs into east and west divisions, they would be divided into east, mideast, midwest and west divisions. The goal of the system is to limit travel time and cost in the earlier rounds of hte playoffs.

The pod playoff system is expected to be implemented in time for the 2010 playoffs which start in November.

At the same meeting last month, the NCHSAA voted to change the length of football season from 12 weeks to 11 weeks. The number of playing dates, however, would not be reduced from 11, meaning teams would not get a bye week if they chose to play an endowment game.

The new season schedule is expected to be in place for the 2011 football season.
