College Head Coaches are being replaced at an alarming rate over the past two decades. Turnover rates of 20% in certain sports are raising eyebrows on why college coaches are being fired or stepping down and changing positions. Studies show that there are many different components that go into selecting a head coach for a new hire. Also, studies talk about the different types of evaluations, depending on level of competition, and criteria used to evaluate those Head Coaches once they are in a program so it is clear to them how to keep from being fired or replaced.
