2022-23 College Football Head Coaching Changes

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Wisconsin

The coaching carousel for the 2022 college football season is already spinning, with hirings and firings coming throughout the season and beyond.

In the latest carousel moves, the hiring of Deion Sanders to Colorado was made official. Also, North Texas reportedly let go Seth Littrell after seven seasons.

 

The carousel has also taken some well-respected head coach, as Wisconsin showed Paul Chryst the door a month into the season. Chryst led the Badgers to three Big Ten title games and a 6-1 bowl game record. Jim Leonhard, a former Badgers player, replaced him on an interim basis. The Badgers hired Cincinnati head coach Luke Fickell the day after the regular season ended.

On Oct. 31, Auburn announced it was releasing coach Bryan Harsin, just hours after hiring a new athletic director. The Tigers lured Hugh Freeze away from Liberty.

As of Dec. 4, there are 18 head-coaching openings in FBS and eight are still open. There are no coaching changes to this point in the Big 12 Conference.
