Keeping track of which coach is on the hottest seat of them all is best left to professionals. Thus we turn our attention to Coaches Hot Seat, the authority in tracking the coaching carousel.
Currently assuming the No. 1 spot in the preseason poll is Arkansas' Houston Nutt, followed by Washington's Tyrone Willingham, Virginia's Al Groh, Wyoming's Joe Glenn and Mississippi Madman Ed Orgeron. Coaches Hot Seat has them ranked, 1 through 119.
This is one great site with a wealth of information, including a list of cost per victory. Illinois' Ron Zook, who is pulling down $1,241.750 a year, won only two games last season, meaning the Fighting Illini were on the hook for $620,875 per victory. Colorado's Dan Hawkins was the runnerup, followed by Iowa's Kirk Ferentz.
The site also maintains a list of coaching salaries, with Alabama's Nick Saban and Notre Dame's Crewcut Charlie Weis at the top and Louisiana Monroe's Charlie Weatherbie at the bottom.
