Bowl Bubble: Bowl eligible teams, who needs a win? 

In one of the least surprising moves of the college football season, Auburn fired head coach Bryan Harsin after going 9-12 in two seasons with a 3-5 record this year.

He was front-and-center on the coaching hot seat list, but this can all change in a hiccup.

Louisville’s Scott Satterfield was right there in the mix – and could go right back up top if the team loses to James Madison this weekend to start a rough four game finishing kick – but rolling by Wake Forest to make it a three-game winning streak changed all of that.

Being on a hot seat might not necessarily mean the coach is about to be fired. Just like every top coach is a three-game losing streak away from being in trouble, at this time of year he’s a three-game winning streak away from a contract extension.

Who are the five that desperately need that good run of wins, and who are five that won’t be canned but could use something positive? As always, we start with …

Five college football coaches who won’t get fired and aren’t on any hot seat, but could use a big win

5. Mel Tucker, Michigan State

Up Next: at Illinois

He’s handling the controversy at the end of the Michigan loss well, but on the  field he’s on his way to a losing season.

He was 2-0 against Jim Harbaugh since taking over, but dropping the date on Saturday 29-7 was big. That’s the one game the base lives on, and it wasn’t all that close. Now the pressure is on to win at Illinois or else that might be it for a bowl shot with a trip to Penn State still to deal with.

On the plus side, beat the Illini, and with Rutgers and Indiana to follow this can all change fast. At this point, getting to six wins and a bowl would be huge. Lose twice, and it’ll be Tucker’s third losing season in four years as a head coach.

4. Brent Pry, Virginia Tech

Up Next: Georgia Tech

This is a redo, and everyone acknowledges that. It’s going to take a little while for the defensive-minded first year man to get everything in place, but it would be nice to come up with a win or three over the last month.

At 2-6 a bowl game is off the table, but the team remains competitive and the D has been fine – for the most part – over the last few weeks. Georgia Tech, at Duke, at Liberty, Virginia – it would do wonders for the offseason if he could pull off two wins against that, especially against the Cavaliers.

3. Brady Hoke, San Diego State

Up Next: UNLV

Almost any coach who’s on a real hot seat probably isn’t allowed on the plane back to San Diego after the brutal collapse in Saturday night’s 32-28 loss to Fresno State. The Aztecs had it in hand, but two touchdowns – helped by a perfect onside kick – in 13 seconds turned it into one of the most shocking late losses of the year.

At 4-4 there’s still time to win two games and go bowling with three of the last four at home and a road trip at New Mexico. It’s been a rough season on and off the field, and after a great 2021 everyone knows what he can do with this program. After Fresno State, though, this is where the coaching side kicks in to get that team up for UNLV.

2. Kalani Sitake, BYU

Up Next: at Boise State

It’s one of the most stunning disappointments of the season. Before the year started, BYU seemed like it was far more likely to be in the College Football Playoff mix than it was to be fighting for a bowl game.

After losing at home to East Carolina as part of a four-game losing streak, now the Cougars have to win two of the last three just to get to a bowl. They’ll beat Dixie State, but the have to go to Boise State and close out at Stanford.

1. Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M

Up Next: Florida

Welcome to life in the SEC West, Son.

This is when Texas A&M was supposed to be what Tennessee has become. Fisher was supposed to make the sleeping-superpower program into a College Football Playoff contender, and it really, really, really isn’t happening … yet.

Here’s the crazy thing – stick A&M in the ACC, or Pac-12, or Big Ten West and all might be fine. Four of the five losses were by six points or fewer, the team is still fighting, and …

Texas A&M has to win three of the last four against Florida, at Auburn, UMass, and LSU to get to a bowl.

Texas A&M under Jimbo Fisher shouldn’t be sweating a bowl invite.

The coaching firings have slowed down, and that’s obviously a good thing on a human level, and also for the struggling teams that have about six more weeks to go before the season is almost over.

That doesn’t mean there aren’t a slew of head coaches who need to win immediately.

The College Football Coaches Hot Seat Top 10 rankings are done in two ways. First are five coaches who aren’t going to get fired this year unless something crazy happens, but could desperately use a momentum change.

This isn’t always a bad thing or a negative ranking – several coaches on this list turned things around fast, like four of the five who were on it last week.

The second part are the coaches who had better crank up a run of wins, or else.

Starting with the five who won’t get fired, but could use something a few wins …

Five college football coaches who won’t get fired and aren’t on any hot seat, but could use a big win

5. Matt Campbell, Iowa State

Up Next: Oklahoma (Sept. 29)

Not only is Campbell not on any hot seat, but he’s on the hot list for just about every available open head coaching gig. There’s one big problem at the moment though – his team is in last place in the Big 12.

His is the only team to not have a Big 12 win.

The defense is great, the team played well against Texas, and all four losses this year were by one score. And, of course, Iowa State beat Iowa, so all is right with the world.

There’s no pressure whatsoever on him job-wise – Iowa State will do just about anything to keep him around – but up next is Oklahoma, West Virginia, at Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and at TCU. Iowa State has to win three of those five just to get to a bowl game.

4. Butch Jones, Arkansas State

Up Next: at Louisiana

It gets lost that he was actually good at Tennessee until it all fell apart in 2017.

He came up with a few nine-wins seasons and won three bowl games in three tries, and then he became a top assistant before taking on the Arkansas State job. 2-10 last year, the Red Wolves are 2-5 this season with tough games against Louisiana, South Alabama, and Troy ahead.

Three of the five losses were close, but it would be a big plus to show signs of something positive for the future over he next six weeks.

3. Jim Leonhard, Wisconsin

Up Next: Purdue

It’s almost certainly his gig no matter what, but that’s not 100% certain yet.

The win over Northwestern was great, but the overtime loss to a scuffling and mediocre Michigan State was hardly a plus.

The Badgers are 3-4, and while he won’t be blamed if the rest of the season fails to come up out of the nosedive, winning three of the last five games – Purdue, Maryland, at Iowa, at Nebraska, Minnesota – to get to a bowl game would do wonders.

If not, there are several programs – (cough) Nebraska (cough) Colorado – that might be very interested.

2. Tony Elliott, Virginia

Up Next: at Georgia Tech (Oct. 20)

It’s not just that Virginia is losing in a mediocre ACC, it’s that it’s boring.

Last season’s Cavaliers were a high-flying fun show with QB Brennan Armstrong and company winging it all around the yard. This year’s team can barely score 17 points on Louisville.

He’s just getting started and he has yet to do his thing with the program, but the second half is rough with at Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina, Pitt, Coastal Carolina, at Virginia Tech.

Winning four of those games wouldn’t be asking for the world for most teams, but the 2-4 Cavaliers just need to come up with their first win in a month to get going.

1. Ken Wilson, Nevada

Up Next: San Diego State

The longtime Nevada assistant went off to the Pac-12 for several years. He came in from Oregon to try building the program back up after former head coach Jay Norvell left for Colorado State – another Mountain West job – for what was considered a better deal.

That didn’t sit all that well with Nevada fans, especially since Norvell took a slew of top players with him.

Wilson’s team started out 2-0, lost in a shootout with Incarnate Word from the FCS, and then lost on the road to Iowa and Air Force – no big deal.

Then came the emotional return of Norvell with a winless and injury-riddled Colorado State team. It was a big moment for Nevada football, and for Wilson, and everything seemed to work in an ugly game except for the 17-14 final score in the loss.

Follow that up with a 31-16 loss to a Hawaii team that’s among the worst in the country, and Nevada is on a five-game losing streak with five of the Mountain West’s best teams coming up.

What 12-Team Playoff Would Look Like

We went a weekend without any head coaches getting fired. Even crazier, the teams that got rid of their former head coaches over the first half of the year – Georgia Tech, Colorado, Wisconsin and Nebraska – all won on Saturday.

A slew of coordinators were let go, but it was relatively quiet as we get to the midway point in the season.

Which coaches are on the hot seat and need a win in a big, big way?

First, the five coaches who aren’t going to get fired but could use something positive over the next few weeks. Then it’s the danger zone – the five coaches who have to win soon or else there might be big problems.

Starting with the five who need to come up with a victory in a tough situation …

5 college football coaches who had better win now, or else

Five college football coaches who won’t get fired and aren’t on a real hot seat, but could use a big win this week

5. Jeff Tedford, Fresno State

Up Next: San Jose State

The Bulldogs lost starting quarterback Jake Haener against USC, but that’s not the reason they lost to a mediocre UConn team and couldn’t do anything in a 40-20 loss to Boise State.

Tedford was wildly successful at Fresno State in 2017 and 2018, left after a bad 2019, and now he’s back and his team has yet to beat an FBS squad.

It had Oregon State dead until it didn’t in the 35-32 loss, and there hasn’t been anything fun since.

Almost the whole Mountain West is clunking, but after this week’s game against San Jose State – the best team in the conference – there’s no reason not to go on a big run over the second half of the campaign against a light slate.

Then again, Fresno State lost to UConn.

4. Thomas Hammock, Northern Illinois

Up Next: at Eastern Michigan

The former NIU running back star had a rough start going 5-7 in his first season before a winless 2020, but it all came together last year going 9-5 with a MAC title. Just when it seemed like the Huskies were going to be a perennial conference powerhouse again, they fizzled.

They’re 1-5 and have yet to beat an FBS team after getting rocked by Toledo 52-32. To make things worse, three of the next four games are on the road and they probably won’t even get to a bowl game. Coming up in a few weeks is a key battle against …

3. Tim Lester, Western Michigan

Up Next: Ohio

Western Michigan isn’t quite there among the most disappointing teams of 2022, but it’s getting close.

The parts are there to win the MAC title, but it’s not going to happen. And why? Because Western Michigan doesn’t win MAC titles lately.

Lester has been solid with no losing seasons in his first five runs, but has yet to take the team to a MAC Championship and has just one bowl win in three tries. Being 2-4 is bad enough, but losing at home to Eastern Michigan by 22 doesn’t mean things are going well.

After dealing with Ohio this week are three road games in the next four. One of his losses this year was one of the lone bright spots for …

2. Mel Tucker, Michigan State

Up Next: Wisconsin

Uh oh.

Michigan State has to be ready for the long haul no matter what after tying Tucker in with a 10-year, $95 million contract last year.

After a strong 11-2 2021 and a 2-0 start this season everything seemed fine, and then came the loss to Washington that was even uglier than the 39-28 final score. After that, it was if the team forgot how to play college football at times in losses to Minnesota, Maryland, and Ohio State.

The team is still trying, but the results aren’t there. Now at 2-4, Tucker has to deal with his alma mater – Wisconsin, and then at Michigan, at Illinois, and he still has at Penn State to deal with. He has to win two of those four – and beat Rutgers and Indiana – just to go bowling.

1. Brent Venables, Oklahoma

Up Next: Kansas

Well that turned fast.

The Sooners didn’t have starting quarterback Dillon Gabriel, but when you’re known for being a defensive wizard of a head coach and your team give up 41 to Kansas State, 55 to TCU, lost 49-0 to Texas, the fan base will get grouchy.

Here’s the wilder part about what happened over the last three weeks – Oklahoma right now might be the worst team in the Big 12.

There’s still plenty of time to turn this around with Kansas up next, at Iowa State, Baylor, and at West Virginia, but forget about the Big 12 Championship or anything big – OU might not go to a bowl.

What 12-Team Playoff Would Look Like

There aren’t any major surprises anymore when it comes to firing college football coaches.

It seems strange that one loss would be enough to become that final push to force a coach out early in the season, but Scott Frost (Nebraska), Herm Edwards (Arizona State), and Geoff Collins (Georgia Tech) are done, and now Colorado got rid of Karl Dorrell after a miserable start and Wisconsin pulled a shocker by firing Paul Chryst after winning 72% of his games and going 6-1 in bowls.

And why would the Badgers do that? The team started 2-3 with an ugly loss to Illinois last week, this season appears to be lost, and more than anything else, in his eighth year without a Big Ten Championship or taking the program higher, the trend is down.

Oh, and defensive coordinator and former Badger great Jim Leonhard is a red hot coaching prospect and Wisconsin is the place for him over, say, Nebraska.

So now what?

Dorrell was No. 1 on last week’s list of Hot Seat Coaches who needed a win immediately, and the 43-20 loss at Arizona turned out to be too much.

Colorado was 0-5 this year, was blown out in every game, and outside of a minor miracle appeared to be head to a winless season. That probably doesn’t change now that Dorrell’s gone, but the calls for a change became too loud.

This can flip, though. Boston College head man Jeff Hafley was able to get a win over Louisville to potentially change his fortunes, and Missouri’s Eliah Drinkwitz got a great performance out of his guys in the loss to Georgia.

But …

First we start with five coaches who won’t get fired, but they’re off to a rough start. With that said, Chryst would’ve been in that category last week.

Next are the coaches who need to win this week or very, very soon, or else.

Starting with five who could use a W …

Five college football coaches who won’t get fired and aren’t on a real hot seat, but could use a big win this week

5. Jeff Monken, Army

Up Next: at Wake Forest

There is zero win-or-else job pressure – everyone knows he’s a great head coach. However, it would be nice to get the season going with a good win.

Okay, so he lost to Navy last year. He followed it up with a win over Missouri in the bowl game for a second straight nine-win season and fourth in five years.

This year the team appeared to be loaded, the schedule didn’t seem that bad, the experience was in place, and it all started 1-3 without a win so far over an FBS team.

Last week it lost to a previously winless Georgia State 31-14.

Lose at Wake Forest this week – it lost 70-56 last year – and it’s going to be an uphill climb to get bowl eligible in a season when at least nine wins were expected.

4. Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M

Up Next: at Alabama

Considering the hype, the preseason ranking, and the expectations, this isn’t going well.

It’s Year Five under Fisher, and there will be a Year Six and Seven because of his contract. However, 37-16 isn’t what the base signed up for, and getting rocked 42-24 by Mississippi State wasn’t where the program was supposed to be.

Yeah, A&M beat Arkansas, but if the kid’s field goal attempt went four inches to the left this conversation takes a different tone. Yeah, A&M beat Miami, but that might not mean much right now. Yeah, the team is 3-2, but …

At Alabama, at South Carolina, Ole Miss, Florida, at Auburn, LSU. They’re all still on the slate.

Beat Bama, though, and all will be right with the world.

3. Brady Hoke, San Diego State

Up Next: Hawaii

The offense just can’t be this bad.

Okay, so the team lost starting QB Braxton Burmeister against Boise State, but the defense didn’t step up when other options filled in. The Aztecs were rolling early, and then it all fell apart 35-13.

It’s going to be a grind this season to come up with a winning campaign, but the offense has to be able to – and this isn’t hyperbole – complete a forward pass.

Hawaii  is up next. That might be the worst team in college football right now, and Nevada isn’t anything great. Getting to 4-3 is a must, because at Fresno State, UNLV, San Jose State, at New Mexico, and Air Force suddenly doesn’t look as easy of a run as it did before the season.

2. Tony Elliott, Virginia

Up Next: Louisville

He’s just getting started in his first year as a head coach. This wasn’t a total rebuild job, though, and the pieces are there to at least go bowling.

However, the three road losses to Illinois, Syracuse, and Duke didn’t look good – the Cavaliers are too talented to drop all three. Fortunately, a reeling Louisville is up next.

Get to 3-3 and a bowl shot is still on. Lose, and suddenly the road trip to Georgia Tech and date with Miami don’t look so good.

1. Kirk Ferentz, Iowa

Up Next: at Illinois

He’s an institution, a made man, and everything University of Iowa.

He also has a team that’s struggling to do anything on offense.

Iowa is 3-2 and Ferentz isn’t on a real hot seat – again, he’s Iowa football, and he’s coming off a trip to the Big Ten Championship. However, it’s one thing to lose, and it’s another to lose and be painful to watch with one of the worst attacks in college football.

The 27-14 loss at home to Michigan was a fight. Dropping that was acceptable against one of the best teams in the country. However, lose at Illinois, and with a trip to Ohio State to follow it might be a tough few weeks.

What 12-Team Playoff Would Look Like
AP Rankings | Coaches Poll

Herm Edwards was done after last week and Scott Frost was whacked after his team was pasted by Georgia Southern. To absolutely no one’s surprise, Georgia Tech’s Geoff Collins appears to be next …

He got the rare break of time. Everyone knew Georgia Tech needed a few years to undergo a giant pivot into the modern age of college football offenses – although, I’ll be the first to profess true and undying love for the triple option and its place in the world – but it never got going with a 10-28 run in just over three years.

So who’s next? Who are the coaches who desperately need a win?

We do College Football Coach Hot Seat a bit differently. First, there are the five who almost certainly won’t get fired, but could desperately use a big win soon. And then there are the five who are in big, big trouble if something doesn’t turn around fast.

Starting with five who could use something positive …

5 college football coaches who had better win now, or else

Five College Football Coaches Who Won’t Get Fired, But … WIN

5. Steve Sarkisian, Texas

Up Next: West Virginia

One wild 37-34 OT loss to Texas Tech shouldn’t mean the world – that’s a good Red Raider team and it was on the road – but there can’t be a slide.

And that’s the problem – everyone is expecting Texas to melt down just like it did last year after the Caleb Williams touchdown run to kickstart the Oklahoma comeback win.

There’s no easy out in the Big 12 this year, and it doesn’t get easier going forward.

West Virginia could absolutely win this weekend in Austin. No pressure, but if that happens, Oklahoma, Iowa State, at Oklahoma State, at Kansas State will seem very, very scary.

4. Mack Brown, North Carolina

Up Next: Virginia Tech

He’s been recruiting well, his teams have been interesting, and …

24-18 in just over three years. That’s not exactly setting the world on fire.

Obviously different circumstances – North Carolina isn’t under the NCAA cloud that Arizona State is – but Herm Edwards was sort of a similar outside-the-box older hire, and he went 25-17 in his first 42 games before going 1-3 to finish out his era.

The Tar Heels just suffered their first loss of the season in a 45-32 shootout with Notre Dame. They should’ve lost at Appalachian State, and they got pushed by Georgia State.

After a home game against Virginia Tech, UNC play four games in five on the road and still has to deal with NC State to close out the regular season.

Everything should be fine – there’s no Clemson to deal with – but losing to the Hokies this week would be a problem.

3. Mike MacIntyre, FIU

Up Next: at New Mexico State

There are no expectations in a rough situation, and there’s no concern about anything that happens in his first year of a massive turnaround.

FIU has a close-call win over Bryant from the FCS world, got rocked by Texas State, and last week lost to WKU 73-0.

However, at New Mexico State, UConn, at Charlotte are all up in the next month, and all would be seen as sure-thing wins for just about anyone else.

FIU doesn’t need to necessarily start winning – again, this is going to take time. It would be nice to get a few positives, though, considering where this season appears to be heading.

2. Michael Desormeaux, Louisiana

Up Next: South Alabama

The former star quarterback and current favorite son of the Ragin’ Cajuns had a huge task trying to keep everything going after what Billy Napier was able to put together. However, even with some big personnel losses, this was still expected to be a great team that could be in the Sun Belt title hunt.

Everything looked fine over the first two games, and then came the strange loss at Rice when everything stopped, and then came the ultimate sin – a 21-17 loss last week to ULM.

He’s just getting started, but there aren’t a slew of sure-thing wins left. It’s going to be tough to get four more and get bowl eligible.

1. Mel Tucker, Michigan State

Up Next: at Maryland

This might get ugly in a hurry.

After a fantastic 2021, the program made a massive commitment to Tucker, the needle was pointing up, and it seemed like the glitches were fixed. Everything started out well against Western Michigan and Akron, and then came two massive problems.

It’s not that Michigan State last to Washington and Minnesota, it’s that it didn’t look like it belonged on the same field with either one. A late rally made the 39-28 final score against the Huskies look better than it was, but the 34-7 loss to the Gophers wasn’t even that close.

Tucker and the Spartans had better win at Maryland with Ohio State, Wisconsin, at Michigan, and at Illinois to follow and at Penn State to close.

Six wins and a bowl game aren’t a given now.

<--nextpage-->

College Football Hot Seat Coaches: Win NOW, Or Else

These five coaches will likely hang on to their respective jobs with an okay final record, but they all need to put together a strong string of wins NOW.

5. Jeff Hafley, Boston College

Up Next: Louisville

Boston College fans were getting bored with seven-win seasons. They wanted more, they wanted to break through, they wanted to be a contender – all very reasonable.

Hafley went 6-5 in the COVID year – great. He went 6-6 last season – okay.

Now Boston College is on a rough 1-5 run since the end of last year, and here’s the really rough part – Boston College only has one win over a team that finished with a winning record since Hafley took over.

The Eagles got rocked by Florida State. They started with a loss to Rutgers, lost to a bad Virginia Tech squad, and got a win over Maine from the FCS.

Lose to Louisville this week, and with Clemson and at Wake Forest to follow – and with road games at NC State and Notre Dame ahead – there’s a problem.

4. Eliah Drinkwitz, Missouri

Up Next: Georgia

Welcome to life in the SEC.

If Nathaniel Peat is able to hang on to the ball for just a half-step longer, Mizzou beats Auburn on the road, it’s 3-1, and with Vanderbilt and New Mexico State still to play, a bowl game would’ve seemed close to being a lock.

Peat fumbled, Missouri lost 17-14 in overtime, and up next is Georgia, then Florida on the road. then Vanderbilt and at South Carolina in a bit of a break, then Kentucky, then at Tennessee. NMSU is a breather before closing with Arkansas, but at this point, it’s going to take something special to get to six wins.

There’s a chance 12 of the 14 SEC teams are now eligible. It will be dicey if Mizzou joins Vanderbilt as the ones without an invite.

Speaking of that ending.

3. Bryan Harsin, Auburn

Up Next: LSU

Yeah, Auburn got the win, and yeah, the team is 3-1 now – you are what your record says you are. However, the offense isn’t moving, the Penn State loss was a disaster, and there’s a whole lot of pain and suffering on the horizon.

At 3-1 is seems like a bowl game is a lock, right? Find the three wins out of LSU, at Georgia, at Ole Miss, Arkansas, at Mississippi State, Texas A&M, WKU, at Alabama.

However, if Auburn is sick of him, there’s one place that might like him back …

2. Andy Avalos, Boise State

Up Next: San Diego State

Really? Losing to UTEP 27-10? Boise State?

This is the program that seemingly went decades without losing to anyone other than someone amazing, and now it’s losing to … UTEP?

Bryan Harsin went 69-19 during his seven years at Boise State. The program won three Mountain West championships, two other divisions titles, went 9-4 with a bowl win in a 2015 season when it didn’t take the division, and was 5-2 in the strange COVID year of 2020.

Former Boise State LB Andy Avalos stepped in and went 7-5 last season. Okay, but the 2-2 start to this year isn’t okay, especially after that loss to …

UTEP.

San Diego State, Fresno State, at Air Force. This is a critical three-game stretch. Win those, and all will be right with the world.

1. Karl Dorrell, Colorado

Up Next: at Arizona

The guy knows how to coach – he was the Pac-12 Coach of the Year just two seasons ago, and he won it back in 2005, too.

He was fine at UCLA. Not amazing, but the 35-27 run wasn’t bad. He was a strong assistant in the pros, he knows how to run an offense, and there’s one level of thought that this brutal 2022 is a step back to get the new parts time to potentially take a giant leap forward.

That, and the $11.4 million buyout is a bit too rich to get rid of him before the end of the season.

Colorado has’t even been close in the four losses to TCU, Air Force, Minnesota, and last week against UCLA. Making things worse is the lack of a true lightweight game the rest of the way.

Going to Arizona is close, maybe getting Cal at home is winnable, and hosting Arizona State on October 29th is a shot, but 0-12 is a real possibility with the way the team is playing after four weeks.

Herm Edwards Fired: College Football Coaches Hot Seat Top 10

College Football Week 3 Roundup
CFN 1-131 Rankings | Bowl Projections
Week 3 Scoreboard | Week 4 Early Lines
What 12-Team Playoff Would Look Like
AP Rankings | Coaches Poll

It was an interesting idea.

Forgetting for a moment that Arizona State had then-offensive coordinator Billy Napier there for the taking – but he left for Louisiana to cut his teeth as a head coach – the call of Herm Edwards to take over the head coaching job was a bold move.

He’s a pro head coach, he’s got limitless energy, and he seemed like his style, personality, and skills would turn Arizona State into something special.

In a perfect world, ASU was hoping to catch the Pete Carroll-lighting-in-a-bottle that USC captured once upon a time.

But a mediocre 26-20 run, potential NCAA violations, and worst of all for this season, a 1-2 start with a home loss to Eastern Michigan – after coming in as a 20-point favorite – were enough to make an early change before the team had to deal with Utah, USC, and Washington over the next three weeks.

With Edwards done and Scott Frost out at Nebraska, who are the other coaches in need of a quick turnaround?

Hot Seat is defined a bit differently here. There are coaches who need a win soon or they’ll probably get fired, and there are coaches who appear to be a bit more secure, but could use a bit of a boost with a good winning run.

Starting with the latter, here are five coaches who almost certainly won’t get canned, but could desperately use something splashy …

5 college football coaches who had better win now, or else

5. Brady Hoke, San Diego State

Up Next: Toledo

Hoke’s team went 12-2 last season, it would’ve won the Mountain West championship if it wasn’t gutted by COVID before the title game, and it went on to finish in the top 25.

Now there’s a brand new stadium, the school is this close to getting a very important call from the Pac-12 – or possibly the Big 12 – and all of a sudden, the program has fallen into a slump.

From the Matt Araiza scandal, to the embarrassing loss to Arizona to open Snapdragon Stadium, to the 35-7 loss to Utah on Saturday when there weren’t any answers whatsoever offensively, it has been a rough run.

The Aztecs will be fine – the Mountain West is awful – and they’ll get to a bowl game, but a home win over Toledo this weekend would help before going to Boise State.

Speaking of the Mountain West …

4. Jay Norvell, Colorado State

Up Next: Sacramento State

Norvell left Nevada for a better gig and better facilities, and he brought over a slew of parts from his old job to Fort Collins. It isn’t working so far in his first season..

Getting rocked by Michigan is one thing, but losing by 15 at home to Middle Tennessee is another, and only coming up with seven points against Washington State made things worse.

The Rams will beat Sacramento State this week. They’ll win that, but after starting 0-3, a winning streak is a must before a tough finishing kick.

3. Neal Brown, West Virginia

Up Next: at Virginia Tech

Uh oh.

Brown hasn’t been awful in his first 3+ years, but even with the blowout win over Towson he’s just 18-20 so far. The close loss to Pitt to start the season could’ve gone either way, but the 55-42 loss at home to Kansas wasn’t okay, even if this isn’t the Kansas everyone knew and loved over the last several years.

There’s no break the rest of the way – West Virginia will probably be the underdog in each of the remaining nine games, with the possible exception of a home date with Kansas State.

It’ll take something special to get to a bowl game.

2. Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern

Up Next: Miami University

He’s a made man who bleeds Northwestern purple, and he’s not that far removed from winning two Big Ten West titles in three seasons. However, he’s now 4-11 in his last 15 games, and very soon the Big Ten schedule is going to drop like a box of hammers to make that a whole lot worse.

The excitement was there after beating Nebraska in Dublin, but that wore off after fumbling away a loss to Duke, and then came the inexcusable home gaffe to Southern Illinois.

He’ll never, ever get fired from Northwestern, but with the loss the program is careening towards its third losing season in four years.

1. Chip Kelly, UCLA

Up Next: at Colorado

Wait … isn’t UCLA 3-0?

Yeah, but it has hardly been a smooth run.

The Bruins beat Bowling Green 45-17, but it needed to go on a second half run after a tough start. Last week it took a miraculously bizarre special teams gaffe by South Alabama to survive 32-31.

Losing at Colorado this week would be disastrous – that’s not going to happen. However, Washington, Utah, and at Oregon follow, and that’s going to be tough.

The Bruins will turn in a good season overall, but this is when Kelly was supposed to have everything humming, and UCLA doesn’t appear to be there quite yet.

Week 2 Scoreboard | Week 3 Early Lines
What 12-Team Playoff Would Look Like
AP Rankings | Coaches Poll

It was hardly surprising after a 16-31 including an ugly 1-2 start.

Nebraska collapsed against Northwestern to kickoff what was supposed to be a breakthrough season, the team struggled against North Dakota, and on Saturday it lost to Georgia Southern 45-42.

That was enough for the Huskers to fire head coach Scott Frost. Assistant Mickey Joseph will take over, and now the search is on to restore the glory – Iowa State’s Matt Campbell is reportedly one of the main targets, but this is a big gig that will attract other star prospects.

Which coaches will now get all of the hot seat attention? Which ones are under pressure to come up with something big to show that they’re going to give the respective fan bases and schools the fun they’re looking for?

The coaching hot seat top ten rankings are done in two ways. First, the five who aren’t going to get fired anytime soon unless something crazy happens,  but could really use a big run of wins to relieve the stress. Then, the five who had better come up with a string of victories and a positive direction, or else.

Five coaches who have almost no chance of getting canned, but could desperately use a win …

5 college football coaches who had better win now, or else

5. Paul Chryst, Wisconsin

Up Next: New Mexico State

He’s great for the program, he has three Big Ten West titles in his seven years before this season, and he was one final stalled 2017 Big Ten Championship drive away from going to the College Football Playoff, but this remains the Power Five program that has won the most in the CFP era without getting into the tournament.

Three turnovers and a 17-14 loss to Washington State later, Wisconsin went from looking like a potential lock to win the West to needing to reestablish its dominance. There’s a big trip to Ohio State coming up in two weeks that could reset the narrative.

4. Jimbo Fisher, Texas A&M

Up Next: Miami

We all know what’s coming.

We all know that Texas A&M just cranked up one of the greatest recruiting classes in the history of college football – at least according to the people who get into those things – and we all know that the program is just this close to being the next big thing. It’s not crazy to see Texas A&M coming up with a 2019 LSU or 2021 Georgia very, very soon. However …

Losing at home to Appalachian State 17-14 with 186 yards of total offense isn’t a sign that things are going well. Worst of all, last week is as light as it gets until UMass on November 19th.

3. Kirk Ferentz, Iowa

Up Next: Nevada

He’s the longest-tenured head coach at one school in major college football – he started at Iowa in 1999 – the next closest are Mike Gundy at Oklahoma State and Kyle Whittingham at Utah, who have been there since 2005 – and it’s impossible to argue with the results after getting to the Big Ten Championship last year, but …

316 yards of total offense and one touchdown in two games, a 10-7 loss to rival Iowa State, and a passing game that’s just plain sad isn’t how 2022 was supposed to start.

We all know how this works, and we all know the glitch will be fixed. Scoring more than seven points in a game would be nice, though.

2. Brian Kelly, LSU

Up Next: Mississippi State

The problem is there there’s no honeymoon period whatsoever, and the start to his tenure has been, let’s just say, weird.

The brutal fact is that LSU needs a little while to get back to a national title level, but that’s not where the expectations are. LSU isn’t supposed to struggle against Florida State, it’s supposed to win the SEC Championship, and Kelly is supposed to step in and win a national title like Nick Saban, Les Miles, and Ed Orgeron did.

LSU fans aren’t insane – of course they know this is going to take a little bit – but … beat Mississippi State. And then beat Auburn, and then Tennessee, and then Florida, and then Ole Miss, and then Alabama, and then Arkansas …

1. Marcus Freeman, Notre Dame

Up Next: Cal

Yes, Freeman is the first Notre Dame head coach to lose his first three games. Yes, the team collapsed in the bowl loss to Oklahoma State, didn’t open it up in the season-opener against Ohio State, and couldn’t handle a home game at Marshall.

Call it all a step back to possibly take a massive step forward.

It’s hard to sell a fan base on recruiting cycles when it’s expecting a College Football Playoff appearance – and that was exactly the right bar to set with a not-that-bad-other-than-Clemson schedule after going to Columbus.

Everyone loves the hire, no one has a negative word to say about him, and it’s acknowledged that there will be a learning curve of sorts in his first head coaching gig. That’s fine. Now the O needs to work on a nice-long, winning streak.

By the way, the BYU game in Vegas is in two weeks.

Nick Saban might be the greatest college football coach of all-time – or close to it – but do his teams cover the spread?

How do all the SEC head coaches do against the spread, and on the road ATS, and going over on the point total?

If you like to invest, here’s everything you need to know about all 14 current SEC head coaches and how they do against the lines.

One important note, all of these stats only reflect how all the coaches have done on their current SEC teams. Two exceptions for the new guys – Billy Napier’s time at Louisiana and Brian Kelly’s era at Notre Dame are counted.

Who covers – and sometimes more importantly – who doesn’t?

Pac-12 Coaches Against The Spread: Ranked From Best To Worst. Who Covers?

Pac-12 Football Coaches Against The Spread: Who are the best and worst Pac-12 coaches when it comes to covering?

How good are all of the Pac-12 head coaches against the spread? Going from best to worst, here’s who covers and who doesn’t.


How do all of the Pac-12 head coaches do against the spread, and on the road ATS, and going over on the point total?

If you like to invest, here’s the breakdown of ten of the 12 head coaches – Oregon’s Dan Lanning is in his first year as a head man, and we’re technically counting Washington State’s Jake Dickert as a first year coach since he’s going into his first full season.

One other note, with a few exceptions from the first year coaches who switched gigs – Lincoln Riley at USC and Kalen DeBoer at Washington – these stats reflect how all the coaches have done on their current Pac-12 teams.

Who covers – and sometimes more importantly – who doesn’t?
