Coaching changes can result in many positives: more wins, better recruiting, ehanced program support, and-maybe if you get lucky-a ring.
As evidenced by this past weeks' quick change of events in Knoxville, coaching changes can be also be a devastating thing to a program.
Major recruiting losses, lowered expectations, lessened program support, the deep digging into pockets all come in result of one man leaving his respected football team, either by force or by choice.
No matter what the situation or scenario is, it's a tough thing to overcome that can only be healed in time.
The first questions always asked around this time of year are, "Will coach leave? If not now, then when?"
When the highly-liked, favored, and supported coach, or even an ill-mannered, selfish coach (without naming names), on any college campus takes the first door out, the second question that faces the program is instantaneously "Now who?"
For these five programs, that question may not have been researched or assessed as closely as their fans would have liked.
The final product isn't what these five fans were requesting.
