On this episode of “Hangout in the Holy Land,” Josh and Chuck wonder aloud why so many college football coaches seem to be devising and/or implementing an exit strategy — to leave either the collegiate ranks or the coaching industry altogether. Is this current offseason a sign of things to come? Or are we all just overreacting to a few surprising moves?

After nine successful seasons as the head coach of his alma mater, Jim Harbaugh reportedly left a massive extension on the table, opting instead to inherit a consistent underachiever in the NFL. Jeff Hafley walked away from his head coaching position at Boston College to become a defensive coordinator at the next level. And Nick Saban, the GOAT, retired at or near the top of his game!

Were these coaches over the chaos and/or concerned about future of CFB? Or did the stars simply align for them to pursue other opportunities? And how exactly do these moves impact Ohio State?
