College Football's Coach on the Hot Seat Rankings: Post-Week 6 Edition

The coaching carousel in college football continued to spin this week, as Miami (Ohio) coach Don Treadwell was fired after Saturday’s loss to Central Michigan. Mike Bath – a former Miami (Ohio) quarterback – will replace Treadwell for the rest of the season.

Treadwell is the third coach fired this season, joining USC’s Lane Kiffin and Connecticut’s Paul Pasqualoni.

Could we see more firings in the next few weeks? It’s possible.

Texas survived Iowa State’s upset bid on Thursday night, but the Longhorns now have to play Oklahoma. The Sooners have dominated the Longhorns in the last two matchups, and another blowout would be bad news for Mack Brown.

Eastern Michigan is one of the toughest jobs in the nation, but coach Ron English has struggled to improve the program. The Eagles are 1-4, with their only winning coming against FCS opponent Howard.

Other coaches moving up the hot seat watch include Kansas’ Charlie Weis, West Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen and Virginia’s Mike London.

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 10-15 coaches, it’s all about the pressure on a program. While some coaches – like Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen and Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz – aren’t in any danger of being fired. However, both coaches need to continue to show the program is headed in the right direction.
