It happens every year, the migration of coaches leaving one program where they have had a lot of success to make way to another program that has been on the rocks for a few years. For some, these migrations play out quite nicely for them and their families than for some, after a few years at their programs, they’ll be fired in which they’ll be returned to a program of lesser value where they start the vicious cycle of coaching college football all over again.
You see, although it’s crazy to follow and always entertaining, in most cases, that grass that seems green on one side of the fence is often not as green as expected. In some cases, everything works out the way it should, but more times than not, that coaching carousel just keeps spinning round and round until the end of time.
Not too long ago, you had College Football programs that gave their coaches ample amount of time to build long-standing programs and paid those coaches according to what they had done for their program rather than on the potential of what could happen. For years though, we have slowly been building College Football into the madness that we’ve seen over the last several days with the momentum shifts we’ve seen across the entire College Football landscape.
If you want the truth of the matter, sure, it’s been a crazy ride indeed, but you can’t blame the coaches for leaving or even how they do it. Just like in any other profession, coaches are human too, and they have to do what’s best for them and their families. When a coach leaves for another program, it’s nothing personal, it’s just business, and that’s how business is handled when high dollar stakes are involved.
Here’s the thing, if you don’t like the current state of College Football, then honestly, it’s a personal problem. If you’re that miserable with the way things have been handled across the sport, then maybe you need to do some soul searching and find another sport to watch. Sure, that grass isn’t always as green as it looks for these coaches, but business is business, and this is just a small fraction of what makes College Football the greatest sport in the world. There’s truly never a dull day when it comes to College Football, as we’ve seen over the last several days. No matter who is hired where by this time next season College Football will have a new look and feel to it.
