After the concept of conference re-alignment received a shot of steroids in 2010, the Big 12's future was more uncertain than Bobby Valentine's job security. However, following the second straight year with two losses of member institutions the conference landed two new schools: TCU and West Virginia, and appears to have re-stabilized itself.
New TCU head coach Trent Johnson and West Virginia's Bob Huggins are two of four new coaches in the Big 12 this season, although Huggins previously coached in the conference at Kansas State before accepting the position at his alma mater in 2007.
His former team also has a new coach in; ousted Illini coach Bruce Weber as he looks to also provide stability in Manhattan after one of the most successful coaches in their program's history, Frank Martin, bolted for South Carolina.
Here is a look at all four new coaches in the Big 12 for the 2012-13 season.
