With the BCS National Championship Game behind us, the season for coaching changes is upon the SEC and the rest of the country.
Coming off a recent seven-year stretch of consecutive national championships and consistently owning the best bowl record among the BCS leagues, the SEC is the pinnacle of college football coaching. With six national championships and 26 conference championships of some variety between them, the head coaches of the Southeastern Conference are an impressive lot.
The network of former SEC head coaches or assistant coaches reaches across the nation, from the AAC to the ACC, the Big 12 to the Pac-12, and it grows every year. Most recently, James Franklin left Nashville to become Penn State's new head coach after a hugely successful stint at Vanderbilt. The league's staffs are always in high demand, and the 2014 offseason has been no different.
Let's take a stroll across the conference to check out the inner workings of each, ranking them as we go.
