CBB Coaches on Their Last Chance to Reach the NCAA Tournament in 2014-15
John Minchillo/Associated Press

In a sport where fans start petitioning for a new head coach after less than three years, the lifespan of a college basketball coach who fails to make the NCAA tournament can rival that of a fruit fly.

The college basketball coaching carousel is a fierce one, claiming 45 head coaches this past offseason alone. By and large, a coach has a very limited time after signing his contract to get his new team to the Big Dance.

For a number of coaches, that grace period ends this season.

It's do or die time. Get your team to the tournament, or make sure your resume and references are up to date.

All coaches on the following slides have been with their current teams for at least three years without ever leading them to the NCAA tournament.

The coaches are ranked in ascending order of the number of jelly beans I'd be willing to bet that they get fired if they miss the tournament.
