Calling a coach secure is as much of an oxymoron as anything I can think of when it comes to modern college sports.
Was there ever a coach who seemed to have more job security than Joe Paterno? Or Jim Tressel before him?
And it doesn’t only have to be off the field/court issues that bring down a coach. Terry Francona was the Boston Red Sox manager who finally conquered the Curse of the Bambino. Theoretically, a Francona statue should have been built in every city in Massachusetts.
But guess who’s currently working for the worldwide leader instead of sitting in the Fenway Park dugout?
Given the precarious nature of the coaching profession, this list includes just as many honorable mentions as actual candidates. However, don’t be shocked if some of these coaches are shown the door one day.
Crazier things have happened.
