Now that Colorado has landed former Miami Dolphins receivers coach Karl Dorrell, college football's hiring-and-firing season has concluded (we think).
Placing grades on new head coaches can be a futile task. Two years ago, Scott Frost (Nebraska) and Chip Kelly (UCLA) were considered home runs. They're now a combined 16-32, while two coaches who would have ranked below them on any list - Herm Edwards (Arizona State) and Josh Heupel (UCF) - are 37-15.
Still, it's tempting to have an early reaction. As the dust settles, let's identify the offseason coaching hires among Power 5 programs that make the most sense and others that raise a few questions.
Makes a lot of sense
Florida State: Mike Norvell
The Seminoles had arguably the biggest head coaching job open this offseason, and it feels like they got this one right. Florida State turned to the man who oversaw the top Group of 5 team in 2019 - Memphis' Norvell.
In four years at Memphis, Norvell went 38-15, including a 12-1 campaign in his final season. His offenses posted top-10 marks in yards per play in each of the last three years. He went a respectable 3-4 against power-conference teams.
Mississippi State: Mike Leach
The pirate is eccentric. He can be polarizing.
But Leach has already won at outposts in the Big 12 (Texas Tech) and Pac-12 (Washington State). He makes a ton of sense for a Mississippi State program trying to compete with Alabama and LSU in the SEC West.
Leach went 55-47 in eight years at Washington State, reaching six bowl games. In the eight years before his arrival, the Cougars went 29-66.
He was 84-43 during a decade at Texas Tech, which has gone just 60-65 in the 10 years since his tenure ended.
Rutgers: Greg Schiano
Fourteen years ago, Schiano took Rutgers to its greatest height.
The Scarlet Knights reached No. 7 in the AP Top 25 and won 11 games. From 2005-11, they reeled off six winning seasons.
After the 2011 campaign, Schiano left to lead the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rutgers joined the Big Ten and cratered as a program. Entering 2020, the school has lost 21 consecutive conference games.
But if anyone can turn Rutgers around, it may be Schiano. He's done it once already.
Washington: Jimmy Lake
