COLUMBUS, Ohio — The college football coaching world is changing quickly. The regular season just ended, conference title games are still ahead and all across the Power 5 conferences, head coaches are being hired and fired.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Sunday, and he’s not the only one who thinks it, that the new early signing period in college football, with recruits inking football national letters of intent on Dec. 20 for the first time this season, has increased the speed of coaching moves.
Meyer almost called it panic, but then he said it’s understandable. If you don’t want to lose a recruiting class, you really need to make a quick call or a firing and a hiring. Mid-December is much different than early February, which remains as the the normal national signing day.
But a lot of kids are going to go now.
So schools are going now.
This will be a tracker for all the head coaching moves among the 65 teams in the Power 5 conference, who’s out and who’s in.
