Can Dana Holgorsen get a win over TTU this Saturday?
College football’s coach carousel didn’t spin into motion as some may have expected in Week 7.
Texas was a heavy underdog to Oklahoma in the annual Red River Rivalry, but the Longhorns stunned the Sooners. Coach Mack Brown is still on the hot seat, and the victory against Oklahoma probably doesn’t change anything in the overall picture for Texas. However, the Longhorns aren’t finished in the Big 12 title landscape, and the win over the Sooners has Brown’s team in position to push Baylor for the top spot.
Eastern Michigan is arguably the nation’s most difficult job. However, the Eagles have backtracked since going 6-6 in 2011, winning just three games in their last 18 contests. English faces long odds to return for 2014.
Other coaches moving up the hot seat watch include Kansas’ Charlie Weis 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.
