Just one week remains in the 2019 college football regular season. The postseason is almost here, which means the head coaching carousel is about to get going, too.

There have already been a couple of major firings this season, with Rutgers firing Chris Ash, Florida State firing Willie Taggart and Arkansas firing Chad Morris.

More moves are probably coming.

Here are three head coaches on the hot seat after Week 13.

Miami head coach Manny Diaz

Diaz is less than one full season into his head coaching career at Miami, but there are already some Hurricanes fans who want him gone.

Miami suffered a devastating upset loss to FIU on Saturday night. You just can't lose that game if you're Diaz.

The Hurricanes probably won't make a change this offseason, but it wouldn't be shocking if they did.

Texas head coach Tom Herman

Like Diaz, Herman probably isn't going to get fired after this season. But the Longhorns expected a hell of a lot more in Year 3 this fall. Texas was dominated by Baylor on Saturday, falling to 6-5 on the season. The Longhorns entered the season with College Football Playoff hopes and now they'll barely make a bowl game. It's not even close to good enough.

USC head coach Clay Helton

Helton remains on this list and the odds suggest that USC will be making a change at head coach this offseason. The Trojans finished the regular season strong, though, and Helton is making a push to keep his job.

There is reportedly internal support for Helton and, if USC doesn't think it can get an Urban Meyer or James Franklin, perhaps they'll wait another year before making a decision.

Helton had a strong message for his new athletic director following Saturday's win over UCLA, too.
