  • Kyle Miller digs into the coaching and coordinator changes that matter in 2019.
  • Some blue blood programs are opting to modernize their offenses this year, while some Group of 5 programs whiffed on coordinator hires.

When handicapping college football, you must consider what a team is trying to do from a scheme perspective. Some teams want to push the tempo while others prefer to chew clock. Some air it out and some run the ball on almost every play. With 130 teams in FBS, you’re sure to find many different philosophies among coordinators.

Below are some coaching changes that I think matter most in 2019, and how they might affect the betting market early on.

Mike Uremovich, Temple

Temple made one of my least favorite coordinator hires of the offseason when new head coach Rod Carey brought his offensive coordinator with him from Northern Illinois to Philadelphia.

Mike Uremovich oversaw Husky offenses that ranked 51st, 112th, and 117th in his three years at the helm. That’s a very disturbing trend and one that doesn’t inspire much confidence in Temple’s already weak offense moving forward.
