In early February there was curiosity within men's college basketball over whether there'd be more than 30 jobs that could change, due in part to lingering financial concerns from the ongoing pandemic.

Turns out the number was 60. The pandemic had almost no impact on coaching movement in 2021. This year's carousel turned into the noisiest of the past decade -- if not longer -- and that doesn't even account for Mike Krzyzewski announcing he'll be retiring from Duke in 2022. It's also been a rare year not just in terms of volume, but quality of job. North Carolina, Texas, Indiana and Arizona can all reasonably be labeled top-10 gigs in college basketball. All opened this year. Who knows how long it will be before we have another carousel cycle that features four of the 10-12 best jobs all coming open? Pretty fascinating. 

It will also be interesting to check in four or five years from now and see which decisions are working out and which, maybe, are not.

There were 15 gigs in Major Seven conferences that had a change; that amounts to 17.4% of all the jobs in those seven leagues switching this year. 

Here are the 60 (!) jobs that turned over in 2021. As of early June, the only school still in need of filling an open post is Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
