Two major college football coaches are already "in trouble" a couple of weeks into the 2018 regular season.

Florida State's new coach, Willie Taggart, has had a disastrous start to his tenure in Tallahassee, Fla. The Seminoles suffered their second loss of the season on Saturday, getting blown out by Syracuse.

FSU was blown out by Virginia Tech Week 1, barely got past Furman in Week 2 and then suffered the devastating loss to the Orange on Saturday.

It's early, but things are not looking good for Taggart and the Seminoles moving forward.

USC head coach Clay Helton, meanwhile, is also not doing well.

The Trojans entered the 2018 season with relatively high expectations, but they've also now already suffered two losses.

USC was blown out by Texas on Saturday night, dropping to 1-2 on the season. The Trojans fell to Stanford a week earlier.

Helton showed some promise during his first two seasons as head coach, but USC's fan base could be growing restless. The rest of the season will have to go well for the Trojans to feel confident moving forward.
