The end of the college football regular season means that it's time for coaches to shuffle around. Some programs fire their head coaches, while other staffs see key assistants bolt for other schools.
With so much movement in the coaching profession during this time of year, the recruiting trail is impacted. Recruits build relationships with coaches, which is a major reason why they commit to a school. So when there's turnover on a staff, that program's recruiting class crumbles.
A Pac-12 school lost its head coach, so many of its commitments may look elsewhere. Several key assistants have been let go at a program entering a new conference, while two of Texas' biggest programs may have new head coaches in a few weeks.
