Welcome aboard the coaching carousel, Virginia Tech. The Hokies became the latest team to fire their coach and enter a market where there will be more quality jobs than experienced, low-risk candidates to fill them. Ari Wasserman from The Athletic joins AP’s Ralph Russo to talk about hirings, firings, meeting expectations and why the current rate at which schools are blowing through coaches only makes it harder to find a good one. Is James Franklin a hot candidate for USC or LSU or is he a coach who has hit his expiration date at Penn State? Then a preview of Week 12 with a top-10 matchup between Michigan State and Ohio State in the Big Ten and a pivotal game in the Pac-12 between Oregon and Utah.
