Coaches Hot Seat has been going through the test scores from the 2007 season and has handed out its grades. As you might expect, Les Miles, Mark Richt, Gary Pinkel and Mark Mangino finished at the head of the class.
Among those with failing grades (and who still have jobs) are Crewcut Charlie Weis, Greg Robinson and Tim Brewster. Coaches Hot Seat said of Crewcut's 3-9 season: "No excuse to lose 9 games at Notre Dame."
Kirk Ferentz, whose team finished 6-6, received a D-minus. "Is anyone coaching this Iowa football team?" North Texas' Todd Dodge did a little better, getting a D. "High school is not college."
Also getting D grades were San Diego State's Chuck Long ("1 more losing season and it's turn out the lights"), South Carolina's Steve Spurrier ("Spurrier's legacy is being tarnished at USC"), Miami's Randy Shannon ("Lost 6 of the last 7. Not good enough for the U") and Arizona's Mike Stoops ("It is 7 wins or bust for Mike Stoops in '08").
