ASN'S FIRST-AND-10 | Coaching changes to watch in 2016

[caption id="attachment_3237" align="alignright" width="150"] ASN'S FIRST-AND-10: A first look at 10 things to know about the 2016 college football season. TODAY: Coaching changes to watch[/caption]

How fast the coaching dominoes can fall: Dino Babers was named the new head coach at Syracuse less than 24 hours after leading Bowling Green to a 34-14 victory over Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship Game.

The next day, Bowling Green athletic director Chris Kingston and his staff were in Lubbock, Texas, talking with Texas Tech assistant Mike Jinks. On Dec. 9, Jinks was named the ninth head coach in Bowling Green history.

You’ve heard of overnight successes after 20 years? That’s Jinks, who wasn’t even considering coaching as a career in 1995, when a group of high school coaches ordered beers from him at the restaurant he worked at.

Now a head coach for the first time, Jinks is one of the coaching faces in new places.
