How Hugh Freeze is making the most of his second chance at coaching (3:36)

After his departure from Ole Miss, Hugh Freeze tells Gene Wojciechowski how he's making the most of his second chance as the coach for Liberty University football. (3:36)

When it comes to the 2020 college football coaching carousel, something is better than nothing.

South Carolina's dismissal of Will Muschamp eight days ago ensures at least one Power 5 program will be in the coaching market during this cycle. Although coaching changes shouldn't be celebrated, they make late November and December more interesting. Muschamp will be fine, by the way, after pocketing around $13.2 million from South Carolina not to coach (he already received around $6 million from Florida after being fired in 2014).

I'm raising my sons to become fired college football coaches. That's the American dream.

South Carolina likely won't be the last major-conference school to make a coaching change in this cycle. The Gamecocks' approach also could impact what other schools choose to do, especially in the SEC.

Here's the latest on what could be coming in the coaching carousel -- from Tennessee to Michigan (and Hugh Freeze's role in all of it) -- this year.
