List: Coaches who made two moves this offseason

Posted by: Chris Vannini on Monday March 13, 2017

Every year, a handful of FBS coaches make multiple moves in the offseason. Sometimes, an unforeseen and better opportunity comes available, and a coach makes a second move.

In most years in the past, 10-12 different coaches made a second move. This offseason, 19 coaches have accepted two different jobs. Last year, there were 20.

Some of these coaches had only accepted a position before taking another job, and others had began working the job before moving. One coach even made three moves, and another coach's second move was back to the original school.

Here are the FBS coaches who made at least two moves this offseason:

Kevin Beard - Georgia offensive quality control to FIU WR coach to Tennessee WR coach
