Here’s a list of all the head coaching openings in college football.

Through 12 weeks of the college football season, the College Football Playoff rankings aren’t the only things changing in the sport’s landscape. Programs are continuously evaluating how their head coaches are performing and some decide to ultimately move in another direction. This season has been notable, with several major programs parting ways with coaches in the middle of the season while others expect to follow suit. Here is a running list of the head coaching jobs currently open or ones that will officially be open at the end of the season.

Florida International

Previous Coach: Butch Davis

Davis said he’s stepping away at the end of the season. FIU doesn’t have the resources of most Florida programs but the head coach here should be able to land some talented players from the state.


Previous Coach: Chip Lindsey

Lindsey was 15-19 in three seasons, and the Trojans will miss a bowl game unless they can beat Georgia State in Atlanta on November 27th. After three straight bowl wins from 2016-18, Troy failed to make postseason at all under Lindsey’s tenure.

Colorado State

Previous Coach: Steve Addazio

Addazio is out after two seasons at Colorado State. He went 4-12 and made headlines for being ejected from a game, becoming just the second coach to be removed in this fashion from a NCAA game. Let’s see where the Rams go next after Addazio’s poor run over the last two years.
