2011 Rivals.com Coordinator Carousel

Half of the 120 schools in the FBS ranks changed at least one coordinator this offseason. Forty-four schools made at least one coordinator change last season.

While 21 new coordinators came about because of new head coaches, 39 "sitting" coaches also made a change. Of those, some came about because the coordinator left to become a head coach -- such as Michigan State offensive coordinator Don Treadwell becoming coach at Miami (Ohio) -- and some came about because the coordinator left for what he thought was a better job -- such as Boise State offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin taking the same job at Texas.

Arizona, Middle Tennessee, New Mexico, Texas and UCLA are the schools that changed both coordinators without changing head coaches.

Here's a complete rundown of the coordinator changes this offseason.
