Nominations can be submitted by anyone at anytime (former coaches, athletes, fans, relatives etc.). The HOF “Archive & History” committee may nominate potential inductees as well. A person cannot nominate himself.
Former players and coaches must be at least 5 years removed from graduation/retirement to be eligible to be nominated and inducted. Teams may be nominated and inducted after 10 years. Contributors may be inducted at the discretion of the selection committee.
The deadline for consideration each year will be April 30th. Selections will be made and announced in May each year. Nominations will be kept on file for at least 5 years. After 5 years, the selection committee can choose to keep or eliminate each individual nomination.
