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 last carousel move, Navy elevated coach Brian Newberry to replace Ken Niumatalolo.

Mississippi State moved quickly to make its defensive coordinator, Zach Arnett, the new head coach in the days after the passing of Mike Leach. The move comes before MSU has hired a full-time athletic director. Also, Kent State hired Minnesota associate head coach Kenni Burns to be its new head coach.

Purdue hired Illinois defensive coordinator Ryan Walters to take over the program. The North Texas Mean Green hired Eric Morris, the former head coach at Incarnate Word who spent last season as the offensive coordinator at Washington State.

Also, Sacramento State coach Troy Taylor is taking over at Stanford. Scott Satterfield left Louisville to take over at Cincinnati, while Jeff Brohm — a former Cardinals quarterback and assistant coach — left Purdue to take over at Louisville. That was on the heels of Deion Sanders leaving Jackson State to take over at Colorado, while Barry Odom left Arkansas as defensive coordinator to take over at UNLV.

 

As of Dec. 22 there are 24 head-coaching openings in FBS and all are filled. There are no head-coaching changes in the Big 12 Conference.
