Big Ten Football: Power Ranking the Coaches According to Job Security

Spring football is underway and fans are thinking about their hopes for the upcoming season. Rankings will be coming out, discussing where each team stands, what bowl games are likely and how good their coaches are in respect to others.

Rather than looking at the coaches based upon the program, this slideshow examines the Big Ten coaches based upon their job security, counting down from most to least secure. For once, this is a list where you want to be at the bottom.

The rankings were developed using an assortment of factors. These include, but are not limited to, their newness in the position, fanbase expectations, history with the program, level of recent success and off-the-field issues (just ask Bruce Pearl how important those are).

As the year progresses, coaches will move up and down the list, with some being on the dreaded hot seat. But right now, this is where they stand as of spring ball, and hope is in play.

Let the rankings and the discussion begin.
