After examining the next group of coordinators likely to land major FBS head-coaching jobs, it's time to go one level deeper -- and get a bit smarter about future coaching cycles.

The names on the following list won't ring a bell for the majority of college fans. Most are under 40 years of age. Many are in new roles. Some are just beginning their careers as coordinators. But after speaking to agents, administrators and others who research candidates and hiring patterns, keep a close eye on these coordinators who soon could position themselves to lead programs.

So remember these names. One day, they could be leading your favorite team onto the field.
