Georgia State football coach Trent Miles said he was disappointed in the NCAA’s decision on Friday to abolish the use of satellite camps. The NCAA also ruled that coaches employed by other schools can’t be employed at another coach’s camp.

Miles hosted Penn State’s James Franklin and his staff at a camp in 2014, and then again along with Nebraska’s coaches last year.

Miles last year discussed future camps with Notre Dame and Indiana.

“It’s very disappointing for the student-athletes who can’t afford to travel out of state to be seen by coaches and schools from other regions. Like the young man from Atlanta who would like to be seen by a Big Ten school but can’t afford to travel there. Now he doesn’t have that opportunity.”

The NCAA’s FBS council voted to outlaw the camps on Friday. Among those in the Group of 5, the Sun Belt was one of two conferences that voted against the camps.
