Eleven More Football Programs to Launch by 2016 Season

The rest of the economy may not be so fortunate, but the jobs report for college football coaching has never been healthier. 

According to a report released by the National Football Foundation on Tuesday, a dozen new football programs are set to officially put the pads on less than a month from now. That's in addition to the five that launched in 2012, the nine in 2011, the six in 2010, the five in 2009 and the eight in 2008. On top of that, 11 more programs will begin play from 2014-16. 

Overall, college football's membership will grow by 56 members from 2008-16. 

That begs the question, especially in light of the concussion issues the sport is battling right now, why so many schools are racing to build programs.

“Football on campus really completes the college experience for students, and a lot of people felt that was lacking once football was dropped," said East Tennessee State athletic director Richard Sadler, whose school will join the Southern Conference of FCS in 2015. "We see football as the part of the brand of the university to reach out to the community and create opportunities for a lot of folks. There are just a tremendous number of reasons to add football.”

For small schools, adding football benefits the university by boosting male enrollment. For others, it's a way to get alumni more involved in the university. Most often, schools add football programs simply because there's no better way to enhance the profile of an entire university.

"It’s ironic given all of the concern about the concussion issue with football that you don’t see schools dropping, but you do see schools adding because of what it gives you," said Southern Conference commissioner John Iamarino. "It elevates the school to a different level. It gives you an activity that becomes

the central rallying point for the entire campus for the alumni, the boosters, to a far greater extent than any other sport, and that is where the attraction is."

Spread from Florida to Oregon, the 56 new teams hail from 25 states and will join 23 separate conferences spread across all four divisions of the NCAA, the NAIA and the United States Collegiate Athletic Association.
