2018-19HCChanges

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

On a similar note, we're also tracking all of the 2018-19 contract extensions from the off season on here.

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.

New Interactive Map
