He’s a wanderer. Brian Kelly’s been a head coach at four different stops, starting at Grand Valley State in 1991. Todd Graham’s had four head coaching jobs since 2006, two of which, Rice and Pittsburgh, lasted a single season. Nick Saban’s had four jobs, each on the F.B.S. level: Toledo, Michigan State, L.S.U. and Alabama. Jerry Kill has had five, beginning with Saginaw Valley State in 1994 and continuing at Minnesota, where he’s about to enter his second season. Dennis Franchione sees your four, smiles knowingly at your five, and raises you all the way to eight, if you count Texas State twice. Southwestern, in Kansas, from 1981-82. Pittsburg State, also in Kansas, from 1985-89. Texas State — part one — from 1990-91. New Mexico from 1992-97. T.C.U. from 1998-2000. Alabama from 2001-2. Texas A&M from 2003-7. Then break, then back to Texas State — part two — in time for last season. He’s a wanderer. The Bobcats hope that Franchione, in his second go-round, has decided to make himself a permanent home.
