Will Deion Sanders and Bob Chesney make the jump from FCS coaching to FBS?

College football programs attract coaches from many different places. There are the conventional routes, like poaching a sitting FBS trainer or staying with a temp or hiring a coordinator.

There was also North Carolina returning with Mack Brown, who was 68 when the Tar Heels signed him for the second time.
