Mods, please feel to put this in the Coaching Carousel thread if necessary, but since it's a general question, I thought it was best to have its own thread.

I was always under the impression that there was unwritten/unspoken "code" that a head coach wouldn't jump schools in the same conference, with the AD not asking for permission out of respect for the fellow conference programs, and the coach not going out of respect for the current program. I also thought the same could be said for assistants moving to HC positions, though less so because they are assistants and it would be a step up, not a lateral.

Am I delusional? (Wouldn't surprise me in the least...)
