Did the paid coaches have kids or family members playing? Years ago Jimbo Fisher was able to get around some football recruiting restrictions because his kid was playing in the same 7-vs-7 tournament as a kid he was trying to recruit
I have seen D1 coaches out at the field and other events, but they also have kids playing in the tournament or participating in the event. I have also seen "furloughed" coaches out at the field watching games.
