  1. While there is a current season thread, there needs to be one regarding coaching changes here plus to discuss how long does a coach need to succeed. There are seven FBS openings already and since the 2008-09 season there have been an average of 24 head coaching changes per year at the FBS level (firing, retiring, taking another job). This thread is an attempt to track these changes. After the 2008 season: 22 coaching changes. Seven of those new hires are already gone (1 retire, 2 firings, 4 took other jobs). After the 2009 season: 23 coaching changes. Five already fired and one other (Vandy) was an interim coach at the start of the season. After the 2010 season: 24 coaching changes. Two coaches were interim (tOSU and UNC) and one already took another job (Ark. State) After the 2011 season: 27 coaching changes with John L. Smith already ruled out as the permanent coach. The current openings are (former coach in italics). New coaches in bold. Arkansas: John L. Smith ---------> Bret Bielema [hired 12/4] Arkansas State: Guz Malzhan [hired by Auburn 12/4]------> Bryan Harsin [hired 12/12] Auburn: Gene Chizik [fired 11/25]------> Guz Malzhan [hired 12/4] Boston College: Frank Spaziani [fired 11/25]------> Steve Addazio [hired 12/4] California: Jeff Tedford---------> Sonny Dykes [hired 12/4] Cincinnati: Butch Jones [hired by Tennessee 12/7]--------->Tommy Tubberville [hired 12/8] Colorado: Jon Embree [fired 11/25]--------->Mike MacIntyre [hired 12/10] Florida International: Mario Cristobal [fired 12/5]--------->Ron Turner [hired 1/04/2013] Georgia State: Bill Curry [announced retirement 8/15]--------->Trent Miles [hired 11/30] Idaho: Rob Akey--------------> Paul Petrino [hired 12/3] Kentucky: Joker Phillips------------> Mark Stoops [hired 11/27] Kent State: Darrell Hazell [hired by Purdue 12/5]------------>Paul Haynes [hired 12/18] Louisiana Tech: Sonny Dykes [hired by Cal 12/5]---------->Skip Holtz [hired 12/14] Nevada: Chris Ault [retired 12/28]----------> Brian Polian [hired 1/7/13] New Mexico State: DeWayne Walker [resigned 1/24]]----------> NC State: Tom O'Brien [fired 11/25]-----------> Dave Doeren [hired 12/1] Northern Illinois: Dave Doeren [hired by NC State 12/1]----------->Rod Carey [hired 12/2] Oregon: Chip Kelly [hired by Philadelphia Eagles 1/16/13]--------->Mark Helfrich Purdue: Danny Hope [fired 11/25]---------> Darrell Hazell [hired 12/5] San Jose State: Mike Macintyre [hired by Colorado 12/10]----------->Ron Caragher [hired 12/17] South Florida: Skip Holtz [fired 12/2]---------> Willie Taggart [hired 12/8] Southern Miss: Ellis Johnson [fired 11/27]----------->Todd Monken [hired 12/11] Syracuse: Doug Marrone [hired by Bills 1/7/13]----------->Scott Shafer [hired 1/11/13] Temple: Steve Addazio [hired by BC 12/4]----------->Matt Rhule [hired 12/17] Tennessee: Derek Dooley-----------> Butch Jones [hired 12/7] Texas Tech: Tommy Tubberville [hired by Cincinnati 12/8]----------->Kliff Kingsbury [hired 12/12] Utah State: Gary Andersen [hired by Wisconsin 12/20]------->Matt Wells [hired 12/20] UTEP: Mike Price [retirement]--------> Sean Kugler [hired 12/10] Western Kentucky: Willie Taggart [hired by South Florida 12/8]------->Bobby Petrino [hired 12/10] Western Michigan: Bill Cubit---------> P.J. Fleck [hired 12/17] Wisconsin: Bret Bielema [hired by Arkansas 12/4]------->Gary Andersen [hired 12/20] If you think a coach is on the hot seat, list it. IMO, the list of to be fired coaches include: Eastern Michigan: Ron English (10-38 in four seasons) New Mexico State: DeWayne Walker (career 10-39 in four seasons) South Florida: Skip Holtz (team has not improved) Southern Miss : Ellis Johnson (in a season, they went from 12-wins to 0-12) UNLV: Bobby Hauck (a late night loss @ Hawaii will make him 6-32 in three seasons) USC: Lane Kiffin (AD Pat Haden said after the UCLA game that Kiffin would return, but after losing to ND he may have his voicemail full and the bigger question is who to replace him) Washington: Steve Sarkisian (took over a o-11 team, but he is just 26-24 in four years going into a new Husky Stadium. They thought he would be better and spent $$$ for higher priced assistants and lost to a 2-win Wazzu.) Wyoming: Dave Christensen (22-27 in four years and his tirade after the Air Force game didn't help)
