I was curious about coaches who left a P5 for a different P5 in the last decade. This excludes anyone who was fired from one P5 gig and immediately picked up another (e.g., Richt, Sumlin). I've made comments where applicable. In short, a quick count says 12 guys left their P5 job for another P5 job over the past decade. In other words, it's not common. And 9 of those 12 were hires that resulted in a step up in prestige.

Obviously, history is not an indicator of future performance. Just know that it's rare for a coach to leave a P5 job for another P5 job if it's not a step up in prestige or for personal ties.

2017:

Dan Mullen, Miss St to Florida (Worked at Florida previously & a step up in prestige)
Jimbo Fisher, Florida St to TAMU (FSU was lousy last year and TAMU offered absurd money based on his prestige)
Willie Taggart, Oregon to Florida St (Florida native, had success in Florida at South Florida, arguable step up in prestige)

2016:
None

2015:
None

2014:
Paul Chryst, Pitt to Wisconsin (Native / Alum / previously worked there / step up in prestige)
Mike Riley, Oregon St to Nebraska (Step up in prestige)
Gary Anderson, Wisconsin to Oregon St (Weird, but likely a sign he was unhappy there)

2013:
Steve Sarkasian, Washington to USC (Previously worked at USC / step up in prestige)
Charlie Strong, Louisville to Texas (Step up in prestige)
James Franklin, Vanderbilt to Penn St (Step up in prestige)

2012:
Brett Bielma, Wisconsin to Arkansas (SEC job / More money)
Tommy Tubberville Texas Tech to Cincy (Better than being fired)

2011:
None

2010:
None

2009:
Lane Kiffin, Tennessee to USC (Dirt ball)

2008:
None

Were any of those moves from schools that wanted to put plaques on rooms and raid the Athletic funds for other purposes instead of paying coaches and the department that brought in the revenue?

Legitimate question.

Interesting. Thanks for the research. Certainly doesn't happen often as much as I would have thought.

We only know of the politics in Cuse's athletic department. Bielma to Arkansas, Andersen to Oregon St, Jimbo to TAMU, and Tubberville to Cincy all smack of internal strife.

Yeah, as a poster on Nunes repeatedly posts (and correctly, in my opinion), that it is VERY rare for a non-factory P5 school to poach a sitting P5 coach, unless said coach is an alumni, and/or hates his current AD.
Or is Todd Graham. ;)

So, the above examples are all likely filed under "hated their former AD".

As the 2nd place team in the ACC Atlantic this year, behind perennial playoff program Clemson, there are not a ton of "step up in prestige" jobs out there, period; much less that are open right now.

And Dino and Wildhack seem to get along swimmingly, and JW has been giving Dino what he asks for to help build up the infrastructure around the program.
So, "hates his AD" seems to be off the table - hell, Dino had a hand in hiring his AD - how many coaches get that opportunity?!!

USC seemed to be the scariest potential option, but Lynn Swann has tweeted they are keeping Helton (which may change if Swannie gets the axe), so for now, there really aren't any openings that would be a no-brainer move for a guy like Dino.

If Llvll can't pry their alum Brohm away from Purdue, why are we so worried that Dino is going anywhere?
 
If DB goes to the cesspool that is Lville athletics to chase dollars, then he is a complete fraud.
 
The usual course of affairs is that when a newbie coach gets hired on the low end of the pay scale, as soon as he shows a decent level of success, the school redoes his contract with a substantial raise and buyout boost. That keeps hands off, but that hasn't happened here as of yet which is what has generated such consternation.

Or just a capitalist. Petrino will be getting paid not to coach the football team than Dino has made as a head coach to date.

IN NO WAY do I think there is a shot in hell of him going there or in conference. But I wouldn't call him a "complete fraud" either.
