The 2019 college football season is only two-plus weeks old, but unfortunately for some major head coaches, it’s already time to start talking about potential firings.
The latest betting odds from SportsLine have ranked the college football head coaches most-likely to be fired first.
Whose job is most on the line right now?
Here are the five head coaches most-likely to lose their jobs this season.
1. USF head coach Charlie Strong
South Florida is off to a dismal 0-2 start this season and the former Texas head coach is now 7-8 in his last 15 games.
It appears a change could be coming.
2. Florida State head coach Willie Taggart
Taggart is in Year 2 at Florida State and following a brutal first season, the second year isn’t looking much better – if at all. The Seminoles are 1-1 and needed overtime to get past UL Monroe last Saturday.
Perhaps today’s coaching move will propel the Seminoles into a different direction.
3. Rutgers head coach Chris Ash
Rutgers suffered a bad loss last weekend, going into Iowa and falling, 30-0. A loss was expected, but not like that.
NJ.com wrote this week: “If Chris Ash can’t beat Boston College, his Rutgers days are numbered.”
Next Saturday’s game against Boston College is a big one.
4. UCONN head coach Randy Edsall
Edsall, 61, is in his second stint leading the Huskies’ football program. His first tenure (1999-2010) was a good one, leading to the Maryland job.
He’s just 5-21 since returning, though.
5. Rice head coach Mike Bloomgren
The Rice head coach is just in his second season leading the program and it seems unlikely that a change would happen so quickly.
Still, the Owls went 2-11 last season and are off to an 0-2 start this year.
