One other interesting tidbit is that the median hire date for all coaches was December 8, 2011, just two and half years ago (two season/three signing days), when North Carolina's Larry Fedora, Memphis' Justin Fuente, and Kansas' Charlie Weis all were hired by their schools.

I'll do the old Westerdawg list of coaches with longest tenure at their current school without a BCS bowl later today or tomorrow, because Spurrier.
