The top coaches primed for a promotion
» MORE: COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF ARCHIVE
If recent history offers any indication, the guys on this list might want to update their résumés.
We don't mean that as a warning.
The coaches on this list aren't in any danger of losing their jobs. They instead should emerge as prime candidates for any head coaching opportunities that open up at the end of the season.
When we put together our list of 10 coaches on the move, we considered any assistant coaches or non-BCS head coaches who hadn't yet celebrated their 45th birthdays.
Last year's version of this list was headed by former Texas defensive coordinator Gene Chizik. The list also included former Southern California offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, former Tulsa coach Steve Kragthorpe and former Miami defensive coordinator Randy Shannon.
All three of those guys are now head coaches at BCS schools or in the NFL.
By this time next year, we're guessing a few of the guys on this list also will have earned promotions.
