"Here today gone today!" Those famous words were said by comedian Chris Rock during his comedy routine in describing the music industry. However, the same can be said for coaches in the NFL and in the college game. 

You have two seasons of winning seven or more games plus a bowl victory, but your next season you go 5-7 and miss a bowl game. Well, don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split ya! 

Or you have the coaches who get their big break at your small little Division I school. You are glad that he led your team to a MAC or WAC conference title and the school just signed him to a big extension through the 2020 season. But he sees the bright lights of the SEC and he's gone faster than the ink can dry on his new contract.

Yes, this coaching carousel that we watch at the end of every college football year never gets old. Sometimes it's good to see a coach leave. Then sometimes you have the coach that says, "I can't wait to defeat Florida and sing Rocky Top all night long!" 

Still bitter about that one huh, Tennessee?

Twenty-one coaches have either been fired, resigned or arrested (thanks Pitt!). Take a click through to see the grade that they have received.
