Being a head coach in Year 1 at a program is always a tough task. You are basically coaching the old coach's players, whom you did not recruit. In many cases, those players likely don't fit your scheme and need to be introduced to a whole new way of doing things.
However, many coaches jump at the chance to take over a program, and recruiting in Year 1 can either go really well or really badly. I want to use this Labor Day to focus on the recruiting that is going really well for first-year head coaches. I have identified six of them who could end up with a Top-25 recruiting class.
Come inside to take a quick look at the six and see how they are doing on the trail.
