(Stats Perform) - The head coaching carousel in FCS college football has spun less following the 2019 season than the way it did in the previous two dizzying years, but it's been active.
There were 24 different schools with a change atop their program between the start of the 2017 and '18 seasons and 25 with a change between the start of the 2018 and '19 seasons.
