2013-14 NCAA Football Coaching Changes Thread

Recommended Posts

We will not wait until December and bowl season. Let's just start this thread now. As is always the case in this part of the season, there has been a lot of talk and speculation on possible Head Coaching changes within the FBS ranks. This thread will attempt to list and track those changes.

The FBS had 30 head coaching changes in 2012-13 and 26 changes in 2011-12.

We might as well start this thread today as Lane Kiffin is looking to get a settlement and leave USC.

This thread will try to update itself on the most recent changes with all head coaching positions.

FBS coaches who are possibly in peril:

Texas: Mack Brown

USC: Lane Kiffin (started before Marquis Lee was carried off)

Mississippi State: Dan Mullen

Washington: Steve Sarkisian

Virginia: Mike London

Iowa State: Paul Rhoads (Then again he coaches that team to the record which IA State typically gets to)

UConn: Paul Pasqualoni

Officially announced vacancies are highlighted in red, and officially announced replacements will be highlighted in blue. Interim coaches will not be listed.

USC: Lane Kiffin (fired 9/28) ----------> Steve Sarkisian (hired 12/2)

UCONN: Paul Pasqualoni (fired 9/30)---------->Bob Diaco (hired 12/12)

Miami(OH): Don Treadwell (fired 10/6)----------> Chuck Martin (hired 12/3)

Florida Atlantic:Carl Pelini (resigned 10/30)---------->Charlie Partridge (hired 12/17)

Eastern Michigan: Ron English (fired 11/8)----------->Chris Creighton (hired 12/11)

Wake Forest: Jim Grobe (retired 12/2)--------------->Dave Clawson (hired 12/10)

Washington is doing really good this season...

Historically, Sarkisian is a 5-4 coach in conference. I am not sure if going 6-3 is good enough for him since he and Washington is set up to be 3rd in the Pac-12 North and be 3rd for years.

It is about expectations and UW has large expectations. Meanwhile they will be the #2 North team in the Pac-12 North at best if they beat can Stanford.

Mullen is in trouble since he went 9-4 in year 2 at Miss State, yet went 4-4 in the SEC and lost to Alabama, Auburn and LSU. That school cannot win the SEC West, yet has expectations to win the division. Last season, Miss State started out 7-0 (3-0 in SEC) yet finished 4-4 in SEC and 8-5 overall with a bowl loss to Northwestern.

EDIT: Mullen and Sarkisian are within one game for overall record, yet Mullen has to play both LSU and Alabama each year and this his conference record is worse. IMO, if one is fired, the other should go since the schools are football equals since 2003.

Sarkisian's not getting fired this year barring a catastrophe.

Bronco Mendenhall might be worth adding to the list. BYU fans are sick of losing to Utah and want him out from what I've heard.

Bronco is safe. Recall, his AD at BYU is Tom Holmoe whose coaching record at Cal was 12-43. He does not have the cred to hire a new coach.

Besides BYU has figured out a solution to the "lose to Utah" problem: Don't schedule them.

not a shock condensing haden canned the bball coach early in the season...........but now who is next in line??

Ditto on Uconn getting a new coach after this season: No way Pasqualoni's surviving this campaign based on the 0-4 start.

when you get hammered by buffalo who needed 5ot to beat a FCS team(granted uconn got whopped by theres), and give up 70 to baylor , your not comming back next year

I agree that some Mississippi State fans are getting tired of not doing any better, but this is as stable as the football program has been since the late 90's. This season isn't looking so hot, but next year we have an easier schedule and more experience. If he doesn't win 9-10 games next year, he's probably gone.

The only way Mullen gets canned this year is if he wins less than 5 games (at 2-2 right now, with Kentucky, Bowling Green, Arkansas, and Ole Miss being the easiest games left).

People always say that Mullen's biggest mistake was winning 9 games in his second season and getting hopes way too high. Fans expected that we would be able to compete with LSU and Alabama on a yearly basis, but realistically that's not going to happen in football.
