Why The Coaching Carousel Is Really A Rollercoaster

December is an exceptionally stressful time of year for football coaches.  It isn’t just a time for preparing for bowl games or recruiting.  If you’ve had a bad season, you may be getting fired.  A good one, and you may be getting a job at a bigger school.  At the very least, you’re likely a part of coaching rumor mill that goes into overdrive.  It’s commonly called the coaching carousel, but our hosts start this episode by telling us it’s a different amusement park ride that the experience is most like.
