SIU has let go their DC, DL coach, CB coach and QB coach. The CB coach was former WIU coach Carl Franks.

Outside of the MVFC:
Mike London (Howard University) will be hired as the new HC of William & Mary after coach Jimmye Laycock chose to retire after an incredible 39 years at the helm.
Jackson State HC Tony Hughes has been fired.
Stephen F. Austin was running on an interim HC all season who won't be hired as the official HC.
Eastern Illinois fired HC Kim Dameron.

Charlotte has withdrawn their offer apparently...sounds like Houston had strong interest from both App State and ECU as well and he might be trying to play them off each other to get the best deal.
The word is that Charlotte is now looking strongly into Will Healy, HC at Austin Peay. Also, it sounds likely that Bill Snyder at K-State will retire and that NDSU's Chris Klieman is one of the front-runners for that position (K-State AD Gene Taylor was the AD at NDSU previously, so he knows Klieman pretty well).

The K-State situation will be interesting to watch because I think Bill wants his son to become the next coach, so might be a power struggle there.

Also sounds like the App St coach is the front runner for the Louisville job, so that job will come open, but isn't open at the moment I don't believe.

Sounds like USD might be making several coaching changes on defense including Moose being gone.

Former USD D-Coordinator Jason Petrino is taking the same position at SIU.

Strong rumor that NDSU HC Chris Klieman is being heavily targeted by K-State for their new HC position. Nothing official yet. If he does get hired for the position, it'll be interesting to see who all he takes with him and who stays at NDSU. Apparently the HC at North Texas was their previous choice, but he wanted to clean house at K-State and bring in all his own guys...and K-State said no.
