Staff continuity - The grass isn't always greener...

Only seven college coaching staffs have the same nine assistant coaches right now as they did at the start of the 2009 season.

Those coaching staffs are Iowa, Missouri, Oregon, Penn State, TCU, Washington, and Army. Apparently, these guys believe the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

This off-season, twenty-five coaching staffs have remained the same.

The list of programs without an assistant coaching change this off-season include Arkansas, Army, Bowling Green, Cincinnati, East Carolina, FAU, Florida State, Fresno State, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, LA Tech, Missouri, NC State, Notre Dame, Ohio, Oregon, Penn State, USF, TCU, Texas A&M, Troy, Virginia, and Washington.

Last off-season, twenty-four coaching staffs remained the same.

Keep in mind, however, that several coaching changes occurred during the summer months last year. If you remember, Vanderbilt head coach Bobby Johnson retired. There were also assistant coaching changes at Kentucky, East Carolina, Tulsa, North Texas, and Texas A&M.
