We already track the hires of the new coaches around college football via our Staff Tracker, but with all the coordinator and position coaching changes in the coaching profession every off season, we wanted to provide a place to go to track those as well.
Here, we will share the openings and hirings at the offensive line coaching position, covering both the hires for new head coaches, and established ones replacing guys.
Some of the top tier offensive line jobs open right now include Arizona State (who very well may promote from within), Auburn, and Tennessee.
We signified one offensive line coach leaving for another offensive line job in parenthesis.
