College football coaching rumors: What we’re hearing

The 2021 college football coaching cycle had some oddities that rule much of the movement. On the one hand, there was the fact that the sitting coaches at both Notre Dame and Oklahoma left for new jobs of their own volition without being fired. There were also the jobs that opened up and were filled before the end of the season (Texas Tech, UConn and Georgia Southern), largely to give their programs a jump in roster building due to the transfer portal. All three coaches were hired as well (Joey McGuire was an assistant coach; Jim Mora and Clay Helton didn’t have coaches at the time), which is something to note when it comes to whether that trend could continue this year.
