Coaching changes so far.... and Kiffingate continues

First, check out the Kiffingate post below. I'll add more updates in a while.

I don't know if we've ever seen this many controversial coaching change stories within such a short period of time. Let me take you through the timeline of events.

December 1, 2009: Head coach Charlie Weis of Notre Dame is fired.

December 2, 2009: Georgia fires defensive coordinator Willie Martinez.

December 11, 2009: Head coach Brian Kelley leaves Cincinnati to go to Notre Dame.

December 26, 2009: Coach Urban Meyer declares that he will resign as head coach of Florida.

December 27, 2009: Coach Urban Meyer changes his mind, says he will take leave of absence.

December 28, 2009: Mike Leach is suspended by Texas Tech due to a player complaint.

December 30, 2009: Mike Leach fired by Texas Tech.

January 9, 2010: Tommy Tuberville is hired as the new head coach of Texas Tech.

January 11, 2010: USC coach Pete Carroll signs to be new head coach of Seattle Seahawks.

January 12, 2010: Tennessee's coach Lane Kiffin leaves after only one year to become the new head coach of USC.

January 12-present: Riots and protests on Rocky Top.

Also, legendary Bobby Bowden was finally let go from FSU, Jim Leavitt was fired by USF for allegedly roughhousing a player, Rich Brooks left Kentucky, and a bunch of other coaches moved around.

Can you believe this stuff? I hope there's some way this keeps up throughout the offseason so we have something to entertain us until actual football returns.
