There have been a plethora of college football coaches fired this season. Temple is the latest to fire its head coach.

Rod Carey is out after having a record of 12-20 in 3 seasons with the Owls. This season the Owls were 3-9 and 1-7 in American play.

There have been 19 coaching changes so far this season, and a school that no one thought would be open is now open at Oklahoma.

Temple better have its coach in place, or they are going to be in scramble mode. There are many high profile jobs open, such as Oklahoma, LSU, TCU, Virginia Tech and Washington.

Carey took the Owls to a bowl game in his first season as the Owls finished 8-5. They ended up in the Military Bowl and got blown out by North Carolina 55-13.

Coaches have a shorter leash than ever before, and you better perform to a high standard or athletic directors or going to look for greener pastures. Coaches who are successful at their job are going to ask for even longer contract extensions.

Whatever happens next in the coaching carousel, it is going to be a wild December to remember.
