Coaches with new challenges in new places

3/18/2013

College football saw a lot of coaching changes following the 2012 season.

In the SEC alone, four coaching changes were made with Arkansas, Auburn, Kentucky and Tennessee all going in different directions.

For new Tennessee coach Butch Jones, who left Cincinnati to become the Vols' fourth head coach in six years, he's looking to make his new team a national power again. The Vols have really fallen from the national ranks in recent years and missed out on bowl games during the final two years of Derek Dooley's three-year tenure in Knoxville.

Jones has the task of making Tennessee relevant again, while directing this team through a treacherous 2012 schedule, but he isn't the only coach dealing with new challenges in new places.

This week, we're taking a look at coaches around the country who have very tall tasks ahead of them at their new places of business. ESPN college football expert Ivan Maisel helped kick things off by looking at some coaches in similar situations as Jones.
