2022-23 NFL and College Head Coaching Changes

Here's where you can keep track of all the head coaching changes from coast to coast.

We're back with our annual list tracking of all the head coaching changes across the NFL and college football. 

The college carousel once again got off to a quick start, starting with a few small college coaches that had spent decades with their respective programs announcing that this would be their final season on the sidelines.

Then, in major college football, Nebraska parted ways with Scott Frost on September 11th, following a loss to Georgia Southern.

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, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-2017, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-202020-21, and the 2021-22 seasons.
