This year's coaching carousel wasn't particularly robust, but there was a chorus of praise from the college football media following nearly every hire. That's not unusual.

Of course, reality and history tells us that several of these coaches will be on hot seat lists in three years. And it may not be the ones we think. But here's an attempt to grade how each school did in this year's coaching carousel, with the obvious caveat that more moves are possible.
