The college football coaching carousel is starting to spin a little faster, after Week 12.

Kansas has already filled its job. Les Miles has officially been announced as the next Jayhawks head coach.

This morning, Colorado fired Mike MacIntyre two years removed from a 10-win season and trip to the Pac-12 championship game. MacIntyre's team has lost six straight since a 5-0 start to the year, and is at risk of another missed bowl.

Now, a Group of Five job is opening up, with Texas State making a decision on its embattled coach.

According to Football Scoop, Texas State has fired Everett Withers.

Withers is in his third year in San Marcos, and has really struggled to get things going for the young Sun Belt club.

After a pair of 2-10 seasons, the Bobcats are 3-8 this season. According to the report, he will not finish out the year.

The Bobcats lost Saturday's game to Troy, 12-7.

Withers was a very successful head coach at the FCS level, winning 18 games in two years at James Madison before takng over the Bobcats. He also went 7-6 in one year as interim head coach at North Carolina, after the 2011 dismissal of Butch Davis just ahead of the season.

In between that season and the JMU gig, he was on Urban Meyer's Ohio State staff for two seasons as assistant head coach and co-defensive coordinator.
