Which Coach Boosted Their Stock After Week 2? Which Coach Felt Their Seat Get Hotter?
We used to give college football coaches years to determine if they had what it takes. Now, we make drastic judgements on a weekly basis. Which coaches had the best Week 2 and which fell flat?
Scott Frost, a regular on the stock down list, was fired after their loss to Georgia Southern at home. No need to pick on Frost any longer. There are plenty of other candidates to replace Frost on this list.
Jimbo Fisher – Texas A&M
At some point Fisher is going to need the off-the-field success to turn into on-the-field success. Losing to Appalachian State will make Aggie boosters lose patience quickly.
Marcus Freeman – Notre Dame
The honeymoon for Notre Dame is over. Freeman needs to show quickly that this is only a rough start and not the start of a downfall.
Paul Chryst – Wisconsin
That was a bad loss for Wisconsin. Cracks are starting to appear in the Wisconsin program under Chryst.
Eli Drinkwitz – Missouri
There was nothing good to take away from Missouri’s beating against Kansas State.
Steve Sarkisian – Texas
This is somewhat an indictment on how far the standard at Texas has fallen. But, going toe-to-toe with Alabama is impressive and a step in the right direction for Sarkisian and Texas.
Kalani Sitake – BYU
Another impressive and under-the-radar win for Sitake and BYU. He just produces solid teams and wins. He’ll be getting calls from other programs this year and likely a pay raise.
Mark Stoops – Kentucky
An impressive win for Stoops and Kentucky at Florida. What he’s accomplished at Kentucky is underappreciated. Some Athletic Director would be wise to throw a $9 million/year salary his way.
Jake Dickert – Washington State
Dickert aced his first major test with a win at Wisconsin. That’s the kind of win that will get Athletic Directors’ attention.
Charles Huff – Marshall
That win at Notre Dame, combined with even a decent season, could be enough to land Huff a large pay raise at another school.
