Recruits such as Tennessee QB commit Adrian Martinez are caught in the middle of the coaching moves. Here are the prospects who could change commitments because of a coaching change.

UCF follows the Frost Formula in plucking Josh Heupel from Mizzou. Should make for a smooth transition after bowl season. Interested to learn what this means for Troy Walters. No matter, the next four weeks will be an odd time in those coaching offices. The players deserve for it to be handled gracefully. Likely that Danny White will manage the situation well.

Mark Schlabach ESPN Senior Writer 

Missouri offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel, a former Oklahoma quarterback, has been named UCF's new head coach, according to an announcement from the school. He replaces Scott Frost, who left for Nebraska, his alma mater, on Saturday.

Scott Frost's choice to coach UCF in the bowl game would be unconventional but far from unprecedented. Urban Meyer coached unbeaten Utah to a win in the 2005 Fiesta Bowl after accepting the Florida job. Coordinators have done it more often — notably Charlie Strong with the Gators after he took the head-coaching job at Louisville in 2009 and Nebraska-bound Bo Pelini with LSU after the 2007 season.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Scott Frost's contract is for seven years, $35 million. That will make him the third-highest paid Big Ten coach, behind Jim Harbaugh and Urban Meyer. And according to UCF athletic director Danny White, Frost will coach the Knights in the bowl game.
