The Scoop's 2020-21 FBS Staff Tracker

As we entered the final weeks of the season, there had seen 6 head coaching changes across major college football.

Now, almost through January, there have been fifteen coaching changes including at blue-blood programs Auburn, Texas, and Tennessee and at some of the top Group of Five jobs in football at Boise State, Arkansas State, and UCF.

So if you wondered how COVID would impact the coaching carousel this year, those two previous paragraphs have your answer.

Just as we have the last two off seasons (2019-20 and 2018-19), we wanted to provide a landing page to track all of the new staffs as they come together.

As all the pieces start to come together, check back on (or bookmark) this page to see how the staffs are forming. We will update this page as each hire is officially announced.

Here is the landing page where we keep track of all the head coaching movement from the NFL and college levels, and stay glued to The Scoop for the latest coaching job change information.
