It makes you wonder though, this whole notion of namesake advancement, what could have been for some of these "lesser" football programs. Where would NU be without Devanay, Bama without Bryant (20 years w/o championship contention), you don't get that in modern college football. Maybe Boise state with Chris Peterson, or Mark Dantonio with MSU.
Yeah, you just don't see the big names staying anymore. I think Saban might be the next because there's really nowhere else for him to go and he's already decided he didn't like NFL. That said, though, another aspect is scandal. That's arguably what got whatshisface at Ohio State and probably why Carroll left USC. I don't know why Meyer left Florida, exactly, but those are the ones which were really notable and well known in their current positions. Those longtime coaches didn't have the scandal issues to ruin their tenure.
