The college football coaching carousel just keeps spinning this cycle, with the latest turn being DeShaun Foster's hire at UCLA to replace Chip Kelly, who left for the offensive coordinator job at Ohio State.
The carousel provided late fireworks this offseason, including with the bombshell news of Alabama's Nick Saban riding off into retirement. After Kalen DeBoer left Washington for Tuscaloosa, former Arizona coach Jedd Fisch agreed to take over the Huskies job, with San Jose State's Brent Brennan filling the void left by Fisch. Fresh off a national championship, Jim Harbaugh left Michigan for the Los Angeles Chargers and offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore was promoted to replace him.
Every new hire comes with a degree of hope but also plenty to analyze. Recent coaching cycles have shown that some can't-miss hires will miss and that less-celebrated coaches can be exactly what certain programs needed.
We are here to break down the most notable new hires: how head coaches fit, the challenges they will face and more. We also will supply an initial grade. This file will be updated throughout the coaching carousel.
