Ah, the old Pac-12 football coaching hot seat: offseason edition.

In a league that appears to be trending upward, there aren't too many coaches that ought to be worried about their spot on the sidelines in 2014. New coaches Todd Graham and Rich Rodriguez (of ASU and U of A, respectively) both had solid 2012 campaigns.

Jim Mora has UCLA on the doorstep of becoming a conference power once again, and Mike Riley's seat cooled off a bit after the Beavers went 9-4 last season. And of course there's David Shaw, who can do no wrong at Stanford after upsetting the Ducks in Autzen Stadium and leading his team to a Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin.

But not everybody is quite as comfortable, and next season will go a long way in determining the direction of several programs.

How do you define job security? The way I see it, the most secure job belongs to the guy who can withstand a zero win season with multiple blowout losses. The guy on the hottest seat is the one who must meet or even exceed expectations in 2013. Even a bad loss to a rival might cause him to get the boot. This may give you an idea of who bookends the list.

Read on to find out where your teams' coach ranks in terms of job security.
