  • Coaches on the Hot Seat

    Came across this website today.

    It ranks BK as pretty safe. Other sources I have read have said that BK is on the hot seat currently. Do you think Mack Brown, Tubberville, or Tedford should be on the hot seat? Thoughts?

    Mack Brown, yes

    Tedford? It's amazing he has had a job for the last 2 years...

      I find it interesting that Pat Fitzgerald is ranked at 32nd overall, because I believe he took the program to four consecutive bowl games for the first time in school history. I know after the top few this is mostly speculation, but this guy is building decent stability in the B1G. I mean they have been the best program in Illinois for the last 4 years.

        The coaches from Idaho, Indiana, and Central Michigan are in the top 10?

        You're kidding me, right?

        I would have had Mack attack higher, along with Dooley, and throw in some Richt as well

          Yeah with the toughest academic entrance standards in the B1G. He's alum and was a captain on the Rose Bowl team that beat ND at home. He's not going anywhere unless he tanks the program, which I don't see happening.

              Agreed. He does more with less and runs a consistent program. I like the guy and could see him doing well in a lateral move.

                Am I wrong or did Skip Holtz just sign an extension?

                  I think Mack Brown and Mark Richt should be on the hot seat.

                    The Randy Edsall-to-Maryland move still confounds me. What the hell was he thinking?

                        Fitzgerald is at NW until he doesn't want to be anymore. He's taken that program to the heights it can reach. As an Illinois grad, I can't stand him. But he has been successful.

                            Indiana,,,, the guy has only been there 1 year. It will take a lot longer to make IU competive again.

                              Dooley.... two things....
                              1. Struggling to recruit against the other SEC guys. Must do better than 2 and 3 star guys. Believe he needs a few changes in staff.
                              2. Cursed with bad luck. Injuries and crazy plays. Thier luck last year compared to the Irish. They should do much better this year IMO and have one of the best QBs in the country.

                                Richt's seat should be hot as hell. Players Fing up, underachieving.... but for some reason, people just love the guy here in GA.

                                      2. Gene Chizik - Auburn One more year but short leash.
                                      3. Derek Dooley - Tennessee hard to say
                                      4. Joker Phillips - Kentucky Does it matter?
                                      5. Robb Akey - Idaho Does it really matter?
                                      6. Charlie Weis - Kansas LOLOLOLOLOL
                                      7. Kevin Wilson - Indiana No way in hell if you ask me. They are competing with some of the better teams in the conference.
                                      8. Dan Enos - C. Michigan No Clue
                                      9. Mack Brown - Texas
                                      10. Jeff Tedford - California

                                      The last two are interesting. They have both been on the "warm seat" for at least two years.

                                        2. Gene Chizik - Auburn One more year

                                        4. Joker Phillips - Kentucky What a Joke (see what I did there?)
                                        5. Robb Akey - Idaho who?
                                        6. Charlie Weis - Kansas They will give him another year, although he doesn't deserve it.
                                        7. Kevin Wilson - Indiana He should stay, but so should have his predecessor. So we shall see.
                                        8. Dan Enos - C. Michigan Screw the Chips
                                        9. Mack Brown - Texas I was told that there is supposedly a $3MM buyout in his contract, I think UT will use it.
                                        10. Jeff Tedford - California I really couldn't tell ya.

                                          I completely agree with Kevin Wilson. That guy has brought a sense of accountability and work ethic to that program. They are competing week in and week out in the B1G. If they had any athletes on defense they could have won the MSU game. One of my best friends went to IU and follows Hoosier football like we do ND. He can't believe the competitive fire that the team has. IMHO Wilson is doing a great job at IU.

                                          Mack Brown is in trouble. He had to clear his whole staff after last year just to keep his job and getting absolutely embarrassed by the Sooners two years in a row is not what keeps you in the Texas job.

                                            I think Gary Pinkel could be in trouble at Missouri. DUI and his team is getting embarrassed in the SEC.

                                              I personally think Mack Brown is terrible given he has by far and away the most resource-rich program in the country.

                                              The problem is: who replaces him? He has no assistants in the wing really. So Mullen? Riley? Chip Kelly? Holgorsen? Petrino...? [Obligatory Jon Gruden reference].

                                              He also has just about every high school in the state on lock down.

                                                                Mack better figure something out or that seat will burn up. I think someone that could be good at Texas is Charlie strong a defensive Goo-too with that talent he doesn't even have to recruit look out.

                                                                  One coach who is probably not on the hot seat but should be is Mark Richt in Georgia. Georgia has top 5 talent but in every big game Richt gets out coached. Georgia is more talented than USCe but Rich always gets out coached and has his teams unprepared for the spotlight. I think Georgia as a program has reached their apex under Richt which is 9-10 wins and a New Year's day (or thereafter) bowl and a postseason top 15 ranking. But living in the heart of Bulldog country, these fans are ready to go the next level but Richt is not the coach to take them there.

As Rack Em said they love Pinkel for some reason and think they are gonna dominate in bball (which they could; besides Kentucky of course).

                                                                    I don't think Mack Brown will be let go this year, next year maybe

Not really a fan of his, but that is unwarranted. With that said, I'm not sure he will be successful, so maybe they never should have hired him.

Although Hope's contract just got extended at the end of last season too. He frequently makes questionable coaching decisons IMO. I also can't the 2 QB system that he runs. I understand if there is a lack of production or experience (like with EG/Rees) that a change may be warranted, but his constant shuffling with Terbush/Marve has no rhyme or reason to it.

Georgia has top 5 talent but in every big game Richt gets out coached. Georgia is more talented than USCe but Rich always gets out coached and has his teams unprepared for the spotlight. I think Georgia as a program has reached their apex under Richt which is 9-10 wins and a New Year's day (or thereafter) bowl and a postseason top 15 ranking. But living in the heart of Bulldog country, these fans are ready to go the next level but Richt is not the coach to take them there.
                                                                                              No, you have that backwards. He is one of the coaches on a hot seat that shouldn't be.

The only rival he has a losing record against is Florida. And for the first time since 1981, they managed to beat all their rivals last year, a very tough challenge.

If the want to take the next step, to the level of a Florida, Alabama, or LSU, they have to have a coach that can take them there. Richt is not it. Every big game they play he gets out coached. He has his players under prepared and overwhelmed. He must go to bed and have nightmares about Steve Spurrier at night because he outclasses him and out coaches him almost every time they meet.

                                                                                                Richt is a decent coach and a good recruiter but he's not a top flight coach who can take UGA to the NCG.

                                                                                                  I don't know where you heard that. Google Bobby Lowder. He RAN Auburn for many years. Coaches, Presidents, Trustees, Players, etc. What Bobby wanted, Bobby got. He was C.E.O of Colonial Bank (See Bank Failures) and ran AU's Board of Trustees. Lowder was the one that hired Terry Bowden (and brother Tommy) when Pat Dye got caught in the Eric Ramsey Scandal. The NCAA told AU to dump Dye. Auburn let Dye resign and then was appointed Assistant to the President of Auburn. Dye was a Trustee in Lowder's Bank. Lowder picked Terry Bowded as the heir. Dye agitated then as he is now with Chizik. Bowden got canned and Lowder induced Tuberville out of MS. It was Lowder's plane that carried the AU Pres, AD, and a Trustee to negotiate secretly with Petrino in season while Tuberville was AU's head coach. The 3 guys on the plane all lost their AU jobs but not the guy who sent them on his plane. After that fiasco Lowder was forced to hang on to Tubs but life obviously wasn't present.

                                                                                                  Chizik was AU's first choice. If I recall correctly he was more like 4th, 5th, or 6th. Many coached didn't want to mess with the politics at Auburn. Chizik went 8-5 then got Cam for a year and went 13-0 and then went back to 8-5. This year he has no QB and may go 1-11. AU rewrote his contract after the NC. He has a substantial buyout but it decreases at $230K - $250K per month. There was a local article this week that AU will probably wait until December knocking off $.75 mill of the buyout.

                                                                                                  I agree with you on Richt. The other posters comments don't jive with Richt's record. UGA wins less than 65% of its games historically. Dooley in the second most successful coach in UGA's history winning .715 of his games. Richt IS the winningest coach with .7400. There is one guy that coached 3 years in the early 1920's that won at a higher rate by an infinitesimal .00138.

                                                                                                  Dooley actuall won a lessor rate of success than Richt. And keep in mind Dooley never had to face Saban, Suppier, or Miles.

                                                                                                  Dooley did win a NC (with Herschel Walker) and 6 SEC Championships (3 were Co-champions) in 25 years. Richt in 11 years has won 2 SEC Championships but it's a bigger and tougher conference now than then.

                                                                                                  Dooley was 17-4-1 against SCA. But the didn't have Spurrier or even Holtz. Joe Morrison, The Man in Black, was the only coach of note. Richt is 4-3 against Spurrier at SCA. How many coaches have done that well against Spurrier?

                                                                                                  Dooley had to face Bear Bryant but only evey 3 years going 3-5. Richt is 3-1 against the Tide. 1-1 v Saban.

                                                                                                  Dooley was 17-8-1 against the Gators when UF was not a SEC contender. Richt is 7-4.

                                                                                                  The other poster says Richt has reached a plateau. Perhaps he has but it's a better plateau than they on at any time in their history. He took them to an new plateau.

                                                                                                  If UGA sacks Richt who are they going to get? Petrino? Leach? Strong is doing well at UL but that's not the SEC. Guys like Saban, Stoops, etc are leaving what they've got now to go to Athens. Mike Riley who is from the South has turned down at least two SEC gigs in recent years including "coming home to mama".
