The merry-go-round that is the annual shuffling of head coaches throughout college football is well underway, even as nearly half of the FBS schools still have games to play before the 2013 season is in the books.
Steve Sarkisian got it started when he bolted Washington for USC, which prompted Chris Petersen to skip out on Boise State to fill Sarkisian's spot in Seattle. Boise State then kept the carousel going by plucking Bryan Harsin from Arkansas State, leaving that school to tab Blake Anderson as its fifth coach in as many seasons.
In all, 13 FBS head coaching positions opened up either during the year or since the regular season ended, with 11 of those vacancies getting filled already. In addition to those mentioned above, three other schools hired away active head coaches, with Eastern Michigan and Wyoming reaching down to the FCS to find their men.
Make sure to stay buckled in and seated, though, kids, because this ride is far from over. The Texas opening alone could provide enough tangential personnel moves to keep the carousel going for months.
