This is a slide show of the top five biggest scum bag coaches in college football in the past five years, I hope you enjoy!
Petrino has done a great job turning Arkansas into an SEC contender. However it isn't what he's done at Arkansas that makes him a scum bag, it's how he got there. Once upon a time Petrino coached the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL. Mid way through an awful losing season Petrino left to go coach the Razorbacks. I don't care how good the new job is, you never leave your players when they're in need.
Now, I don't know much about Charlie Weis as a person; I'm sure he's a great guy. He was one of the best recruiters in college football, always landing in the top ten in recruiting classes. That is why he is a scum bag, because at some point in time he sat in those kids living rooms and promised them a championship, and during his tenure he has not delivered after having lost in an appearance in the Fiesta Bowl against Ohio St (34-20) and a loss the next year in the Sugar Bowl Against LSU (41-14).
Lane Kiffin has been investigated by the NCAA for multiple recruiting violations in just one year with Tennesee. As if that wasn't bad enough, he won't even be around to coach those young players as he jumped ship for the vacant head coaching job at troubled USC.
It seems that Carroll knew the heat was coming and decided to get out of dodge. Though it is every coaches dream to coach in the NFL (for his second run), the timing just seems a little bit off. It looked like it was all going to hit the fan for Carroll when issues at USC arose, especially with former Heisman winner and current New Oleans Saints running back Reggie Bush. Carrolls actions led to sanctions imposed on USC including a two year bowl game ban. If that wasn't bad enough, Carroll received no punishment since he left.
Now, some may say that this is biased because I'm an Ohio State fan, and maybe it is, but Rich "Dick Rod" Rodriguez has been accused of multiple recruiting violations while at Michigan and back when he coached at West Virginia. Not only that but he is also being investigated by the NCAA for violating practice rules, pending results of the investigation Michigan could receive punishments that could include in a bowl ban. Clearly all of that illegal practice time and those recruiting violations have not paid off for the wolverines as they have been mediocre at best during Dick Rod's tenure in Ann Arbor. Also two of the best players in the game at their positions, Arkansas QB and Heisman hopeful Ryan Mallett and Ohio State All-American offensive lineman Justin Boren, transfered out of Michigan because of Rodriguez and now thrive at their respective schools.
