With the coaching carousel underway, we’ve once again created the 2018-19 head coaching changes page to keep track of all the movement.

New this year is an interactive map where you can see where each opening is at every level.

Consider this your one-stop shop for coaching changes at every level of football – NFL, NCAA and NAIA – throughout the fall and winter, so check back frequently. For your reference, here are the lists of changes for the 2012-13, 2013-142014-15, 2015-162016-2017, and the 2017-18 seasons.
