No. 9: Coaching carousel

Urban Meyer, pictured, resigned (again) as Florida coach, and this time it lasted more than 24 hours. Maryland fired Ralph Friedgen after he won ACC coach-of-the-year. He was replaced by Randy Edsall, who led Maryland to a lopsided Fiesta Bowl loss to Oklahoma. Michigan fired Rich Rodriguez after three miserable years that included NCAA violations for exceeding practice limits. LSU Coach Les Miles spurned an offer to return to his alma mater. Chris Petersen rejected an overture from Stanford and will remain at Boise.Kim Klement, U.S. Presswire
