2019 FCS head coaching changes

NCAA Football

(STATS) – It’s expected the head coaching carousel in FCS college football will spin less following the 2019 season than the way it did in the last two dizzying years.

There were 24 different schools with a change atop their program between the start of the 2017 and ’18 seasons and 25 with a change between the start of the 2018 and ’19 seasons.

Some schools, though, are already moving toward a new era in 2020.


FCS schools that have had a head coaching change since the start of the 2019 season (with date of change and new coach if applicable):

Cal Poly: Tim Walsh (Nov. 25) – new coach TBA

Central Connecticut State: interim Ryan McCarthy (Oct. 16) – new coach Ryan McCarthy

Eastern Kentucky: Mark Elder (Nov. 25) – new coach TBA
