This is happening because collegiate sports are looked at as "business" by coaches and school officials.

it is also looked at as a business by the athletes as well. most of these kids are getting 100K educations and are using college as glorified internships to pad their resumes for their upcoming job.

I don't know about most of them because only a small percentage of college athletes make it to the nba, nfl, mlb, or nhl. Some may get sports related jobs such as broadcasters or coaching if they were good enough in college but a lot of them have to go through the same dramma finding employment that any other college graduate has to go through.
