College football is full of great head coaches. The names Saban, Swinney and Meyer are only some of the ones that come to mind.

But not every coach reaches that status. When you rank all the coaches in the country, someone has to be 130th (dead last) if Saban is No. 1.

Sporting News' Bill Bender released his head coach rankings this week. He has a Power 5 head coach near the bottom.

Kansas' David Beaty ranks 119th out of 130 coaches. He's down from 106 last year.

Here's a look at the company Beaty is in.

121. Jay Norvell, Nevada (128)
120. Brad Lambert, Charlotte (116)
119. David Beaty, Kansas (106)
118. Mark Whipple, UMass (127)
117. Turner Gill, Liberty (NR)
116. Everett Withers, Texas State (118)
115. Matt Viator, Louisiana-Monroe (117)
114. Scottie Montgomery, East Carolina (110)
113. Nick Rolovich, Hawaii (94)
112. Tony Sanchez, UNLV (109)

Beaty is in a tough spot. Coaching at Kansas is exceptionally hard, and not many have been able to win there.

Still, when you're 3-33 in your three seasons as a head coach, including an 0-12 season in 2015 and a 1-26 mark in conference play, you're going to be ranked very low.
