Today, we saw an interesting note that prompted us to take a look back at the head coaching turnover before the 2008 college football season. 18 new head coaches were named prior to the 2008 season. Of those 18, only six are still in the same job today (4+ seasons later).

Fairly surprising that just over 4 years later, only 33% of these guys were still in place.
As you can see, of the head coaches still with their original school, Bo Pelini has accounted for the most wins (41). We saw an additional note from the Nebraska SID stating that Pelini is also one of only a handful (six) of other coaches to win at least 9 games in their first four seasons at a BCS level school (Tom Osborne, Frank Solich, Barry Switzer, Larry Coker & Bobby Petrino while at Louisville). Impressive.
This weekend, Pelini and the Huskers take on Wisconsin up at Camp Randall, and they'll be "spotlighting" some cool new shoes. The game can be see on ABC at 8pm ET.
