College football coaches aren’t forever.
They get fired. They take other jobs. They retire.
As much as Alabama fans might want to believe that Nick Saban’s a national championship-winning, No. 1 recruiting class reeling robot of a head coach – he’s not (we think, anyway). The 64-year-old coach will be leaving Tuscaloosa, Ala. one day.
Who will be replacing him when he does? Dabo Swinney? Jimbo Fisher? Someone else?
Saban, of course, isn’t the only big-time coach who will eventually be leaving their current program.
Who will replace the coaches at college football’s other power programs? Who will replace Urban Meyer in Columbus? Or Bob Stoops in Norman? Or Jim Harbaugh in Ann Arbor?
We’ve made predictions for the next head coaches at 15 of the sport’s top programs.
Here they are.
