Fewer schools should having head coaching changes

(STATS) - William & Mary coach Jimmye Laycock seeking his 250th career win in his final game on Saturday is one of the bigger FCS storylines outside teams going for postseason bids this week.

The 70-year-old Laycock, whose team hosts Richmond, is retiring after 39 seasons, and he's going out on his own terms. That's not something everybody gets to do when the coaching carousel spins at schools each offseason.

The good news in the FCS is the number of head coaching changes in the next few months should be significantly lower than after last season. There were an incredible 25 changes - one-fifth of the schools - from the start of the 2017 season to the start of the 2018 season.
