With yet another coaching carousel hitting the bottom tier of the Big Ten, an updated ranking list of today's best Big Ten football coaches must be discussed.
A good hire can turn around a program. It can turn a dull, uninterested home crowd into a rowdy frenzy on game day. A good coach gets players to buy into his system and philosophy without trying to inherit one team and change it to another.
A bad hire can set a program back for years. This fact is all too relevant in the Big Ten today, as we will see three new head coaches on the sidelines this upcoming fall (not including Bo Pelini of Nebraska). He may be new to the Big Ten, but not to Big Red nation.
This list is based on the notion of, "What have you done for me lately?" and track record. Many positions will be arguable, so let the debating begin.
Here are the power rankings listing the Big Ten's top head coaches.
