College Football's Coach on the Hot Seat Rankings: Post-Week 5 Edition

Unpublished

Who’s next? Even though the first month of the season just ended, college football’s coaching carousel is already in full effect.

USC pulled the plug on Lane Kiffin after Saturday’s loss to Arizona State, and UConn fired Paul Pasqualoni on Monday.

And USC and UConn could be the tip of the iceberg in terms of coaching changes, as Mack Brown is on the hot seat at Texas, which could create a domino effect when it comes to other coaches and job openings this offseason.

Outside of the BCS, Central Michigan’s Dan Enos, Miami (Ohio)’s Don Treadwell and Eastern Michigan’s Ron English are three coaches who could be out of a job by season’s end.
Each week, we will take a look at the hot seat/pressure on a program for all 125 coaches. Some new coaches will rank high due to poor performances but aren't in any danger of losing their job. 

And another important note when reading our coach on the hot seat rankings: Outside of the top 20-30 coaches, it’s all about the pressure on a program. While some coaches – like Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen and Indiana’s Kevin Wilson – aren’t in any danger of being fired. However, both coaches need to continue to show the program is headed in the right direction.
