College football Hot Seat rankings: the 2016 season has already seen a few coaching jobs open up, and there will definitely be a number of others before the season is out.
LSU fired head coach Les Miles earlier this season, and the Baylor job opened months earlier, when Art Briles was fired as a part of the sexual assault scandal that rocked the school and football program. Purdue fired Darrel Hazell after another disappointing start, and we have openings at FIU and Fresno State in the Group of Five ranks.
It doesn’t look like there is another mid-season firing on the horizon, at least as of now, but there are a bunch of coaches who really need to help themselves out as we enter the home stretch this season. Some of them hold some of the biggest jobs in college football, adding additional pressure to those coaches.
