Once again, the FBS coaching carousel has started its annual spin.

That began on Sept. 30, when Rutgers fired Chris Ash after his team fell to 1-3 on the season.

The coaching carousel has seen 20 or more coaching changes each of the last four seasons. That included 27 in 2018, 20 in 2017, 23 in 2016 and 28 in 2015. With that, Sporting News will continue to track the coaching changes here throughout the 2019 season.

So: Who has fired, resigned, retired or hired?

  • Fired (Sept. 30): Rutgers fired Ash, in his fourth year in Piscataway, after a 52-0 shutout vs. No. 20 Michigan. It dropped the Scarlet Knights to 1-3 on the season and Ash to 8-40 for his tenure, which included winless Big Ten campaigns in 2016, ’18 and ’19.

    Hired (Nov. 30): Rutgers reportedly is nearing a deal with former Scarlet Knights coach Greg Schiano to resume control of the program. Schiano led the team from 2001-11, going 68-67 but leading the team to a top-10 ranking in 2006 and ’07.

  • Fired (Nov. 3): Florida State fired Taggart in just his second season in Tallahassee after a lackluster 27-10 loss to rival Miami. The loss dropped him to 9-12 for his career, which included an 0-3 mark against rivals Miami and Florida.

  • Fired (Nov. 10):Arkansas fired Morris before he could finish his second season. The Razorbacks went 4-18 in his tenure, including winless in SEC play. The final straw was a 45-19 loss to Group of 5 opponent Western Kentucky.

  • Fired (Nov. 22):UNLV fired Sanchez on Nov. 22, but allowed him to coach the final two games of the Rebels’ schedule. Those were a 38-35 win vs. San Jose State and a 33-30 overtime win vs. Nevada. His team went 4-8 in 2019, the fifth sub-.500 season for Sanchez, who went 20-40 in five seasons.

  • Fired (Nov. 30):Missouri fired Odom on Saturday, a day after the Tigers’ 24-14 win against Arkansas. The win improved the Tigers to 6-6 this season and 25-25 under Odom. He coached the Tigers to two bowl games (losing both) but never won more than eight games in a season.
