Did you know that since 2010, the SEC has had 44 different full-time head coaches. Read that again, 44 different head coaches for 14 programs. Unless you are producing high-quality results, your time in the SEC as a head coach isn’t going to last long.
This trend has rapidly spread to all of college football, as most coaches receive two to four years to get the ship going in the right direction. That doesn’t include the countless assistant coaches jumping ship. It’s hard to develop returning production if there’s constantly a new face attempting to develop it.
Thanks to the transfer portal, college coaches are able to upgrade immediately. For instance, with Florida State who is No. 17 on this list, you will still see a lot of new names. The Seminoles replaced many on their roster with upgrades. Their best wide receiver for 2022 was playing on the Pacific Coast last season.
