2022 college football coaching carousel grades: Lincoln Riley an ‘A+’ with Brent Venables an ‘A-’ replacement

Spoiler: Fresno State’s hiring of Jeff Tedford received an A-grade. Colorado State received a B-grade for hiring Jay Norvell and Nevada received a C-grade for hiring Ken Wilson. These grades will be interesting to revisit in a year. Fresno State appears poised to be one of the best teams in the Group of 5 right away next fall. Colorado State should at least be more exciting, although word of warning Rams fans: Norvell did not hit the ground running at Nevada. Speaking of Nevada, a rebuild appears in order, but who knows? Utah State shocked everyone this year with their instant rebuild.

“Veteran Honolulu Star-Advertiser sports columnist Dave Reardon doesn’t expect Graham to be fired as a result of the briefing, but says it will force the program’s issues into the public eye.” Put the pitchforks down, Hawaii fans. No decision on Graham is coming Friday, or possibly any at all in the coming weeks/months, but it appears the program’s laundry will be thrown into the street. This should be interesting.
