Athlon Sports Names The Big Ten's Worst Coach

Here's the worst coach in the Big Ten, according to Athlon Sports.

Rutgers has the worst coach in the Big Ten heading into the 2017 season, according to Athlon Sports.

The college football experts have ranked every coach in the Big Ten, No. 1 to No. 14, heading into this upcoming season.

The Scarlet Knights' leader, Chris Ash, comes in last.

From Athlon Sports:

As expected, Ash’s first season at Rutgers was a struggle. The Scarlet Knights finished 2-10 overall and winless in Big Ten play (0-9). The problems weren’t just limited to wins and losses. A deeper look at the stats showed just how far this program has to go to catch the middle of the conference. Rutgers was held scoreless in four games and gave up 40 points a contest in Big Ten action. It’s no secret Ash is going to need another year or two to recruit and restock the roster. However, judging by his track record as an assistant at Ohio State, Arkansas and Wisconsin, Ash should help this program take a step forward in the next couple of seasons.
