College basketball coaching carousel: Latest buzz, candidates, analysis

The coaching carousel has already been spinning for a couple of months, with Texas firing Chris Beard in early January and Notre Dame coach Mike Brey announcing in mid-January that he was stepping down at the end of the season. Ole Miss got ahead of the pack late last month when it opted to fire Kermit Davis with three games left in the regular season. We've since seen the jobs open up at Georgetown, Texas Tech, California, St. John's and Georgia Tech -- to name just a few.

As we approach the end of Champ Week, there are 27 jobs open or with interim coaches at the helm. That number will only increase over the coming days -- and the ensuing dominoes that fall will only create more openings. We had 60 coaching changes last year, 57 the year before that, and we're on track to fall in that range once again.

For as long as the carousel spins, until all the top jobs are filled, we'll keep you updated here with the latest intel, rumors, scuttlebutt and everything in between for college basketball's 2023 coaching changes.
