The Complete 2011-12 SEC Coaching Carousel Scorecard

The ride's over. Come back next fall.

With Auburn's naming Scot Loeffler as the Tiger's new offensive coordinator on Sunday, the 2011-12 SEC Coaching Carousel has finally come to a stop. The grotesque carnival of innuendo and speculation that began on Nov. 7 with Ole Miss firing Houston Nutt has finally reached its conclusion.

Yes, there are still a host of position coaching positions to be sorted out but that's part of the annual churn for every program. We'll let Phil Steele sort all of that out. Now the head coaches and coordinators in place, plans for the 2012 season can begin in earnest.

This year was marked by consistency at the head coaching level and mass chaos amongst the coordinator slots. Nutt and Texas A&M's Mike Sherman were the only head coaches in next year's SEC to be affected but almost half of the coordinator positions in the league were affected.

The two teams that played in the conference championship, LSU and Georgia, saw no change at the top spots while three others - Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and Missouri - also chose to avoid the ride this off-season.

Last month, Team Speed Kills provided a scorecard to keep track of the changes and with the close of this phase of the silly season, we give you both the initial and final versions of the tally after the jump...
