College Basketball Coaches with the Toughest Jobs in the 2014-15 Season

Former Marquette coach Buzz Williams faces a tough challenge trying to win at Virginia Tech.

It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it. And get paid a healthy sum in the process.

No college basketball job is easy, but there are some amid the 350 or so Division I gigs that just seem downright difficult, especially when it comes to programs in the major conferences. Being in such a high-profile league means there are strong expectations of success, a notion enhanced by the six- or seven-figure salaries that come with the job.

We've identified eight coaches who, due to various circumstances, head into the 2014-15 season in seemingly a no-win situation. Victories are expected, but because of player departures (either to the NBA draft or the transfer wire), off-the-court issues or a lack of recent success, a big win total just doesn't seem realistic. The clash of those two worlds could mean for a very stressful season.

Let's hope those big salaries also come with good health plans.
