5 New Head Coaches Who Finished Strong in 2014 Recruiting
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Among the toughest things to do in college football as a head coach is assemble a good recruiting class right after being hired.

Most schools hire their new head coach in December or January, which means the coach only has a matter of weeks to put together a class to keep up with rival schools.

However, some new head coaches who were just hired several weeks ago actually assembled impressive 2014 recruiting classes, especially under the circumstances. A pair of Pac-12 coaches rallied to finish strong, while an SEC school's new head coach replaced several commitments with quality players.

Plus, a Big 12 program's new head coach did a better recruiting job than many think.
