Northern State (South Dakota): Head coach Chris Boden and defensive coordinator Richard Sweeney will not return.
Florida State: Veteran defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews announced this morning that he will retire at the end of the season. It will be interesting to see if Jimbo Fisher tries to lure West Virginia defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel to replace Andrews as defensive coordinator. Fisher's offensive line coach, Rick Trickett, coached with Casteel at West Virginia from 2001-2006. Casteel's 3-3 stack defensive front would go against the FSU traditional 4-down front, but enticing 5-star defensive line talent to FSU isn't as easy as the old days. There is plenty of recruiting competition (UF, Miami, USF, TN, UGA) for pass rushing defensive ends in the state of Florida.
Utah: Head coach Kyle Whittingham is making a change with his offensive play caller. Wide receivers coach Aaron Roderick will now call the plays. Roderick will move to the press box and Dave Schramm will now coach from the sidelines.
Georgia State: We are hearing that head coach Bill Curry will make volunteer assistant Todd Perry the new tight ends coach at Georgia State. Perry, a former player for Curry at Kentucky, joined the staff last spring.
