Coaching stability is going to be something that the Texas football program can pitch this off-season thanks to a lot of turnover around the Big 12.
The coaching carousel is spinning very fast right now for some of the top programs in the nation. From the Ohio State Buckeyes and Oklahoma Sooners, all the way down to the Liberty Flames and Appalachian State Mountaineers, the coaching carousel made an early impact on the outlook for nearly every FBS conference for the 2019 season. The Texas football program itself didn’t have any significant coaching changes, but some of the outside moves will surely play a role in the outlook of the team moving forward.
The Big 12 was one of the busiest Power Five conferences in the nation in coaching changes before the 2018-19 college football season even concludes. Texas football didn’t make a splash in the coaching market, but its success in 2018 surely had some say in what happened with other head coaches around the Big 12.
Moreover, it wasn’t just the head coaching changes in the Big 12 that impacted Texas football so far. There were some noteworthy coordinator/assistant coaching changes already that could change the title picture in the Big 12 for the next few years at least.
This beginning to the off-season for most teams also had some shocking moves that made headlines around the country. Some of those storylines included Power Five to Group of Five jumps and bringing old names back into the mix for struggling programs.
Here’s a look at the definitive most impactful coaching changes around the Big 12 relating to the Texas Longhorns football program heading into the 2019 off-season.
