NCAA Coaching Change Update: Fired, Hot Seat, and Griddle

OK, now that we are at the end of the season, it is time for your Division I Football Bowl Subdivision coaching carousel update. 11 coaches already are gone. Richie Rich is still on the hot seat; seven are already on the griddle for 2010.

GONE (11)

  • Charlie Weis. Notre Dame. 6-6.
  • Bobby Bowden. Florida State. 6-6.
  • Mark Snyder. Marshall. 6-6.
  • Mark Mangino. Kansas. 5-7. (added 12/3, 9 pm)
  • Mike Sanford. UNLV. 5-7.
  • Steve Kragthorpe. Louisville. 4-8.
  • Al Groh. Virginia. 3-9.
  • JD Brookhart. Akron. 3-9.
  • Dick Tomey. San Jose State. 2-9.
  • Tommy West. Memphis. 2-10.
  • David Elson. Western Kentucky. 0-11.



  • Dennis Erickson. Arizona State. 4-8. 2007’s Pac-10 coach of the year is a distant memory for back-to-back losing seasons.
  • Ron Zook. Illinois. 3-8. Zook’s problems ain’t nothing. Illinois’ president was sacked for admissions violations – too bad they couldn’t admit better players.
  • Dan Hawkins. Colorado. 3-9. That blue field of Boise State looks better every year in Boulder.
  • Ralph Friedgen. Maryland. 2-10. Another meat eater gets another year to tack on a few more wins, or pounds.
  • Todd Dodge. North Texas. 2-10. Don’t know a thing about this guy, but he’s been there for three years.
  • Mike Locksley. New Mexico. 1-11. Um, getting into a fistfight with your assistant coach in your first month as coach won’t get Ws.
  • Paul Wulff. Washington State. 1-11. Three wins in two years… maybe two wins in year three? This guy’s T-O-A-S-T.
