It is never too early to talk about the college coaching hot seat. This year, unlike last, there are many mainstream names that should consider their job in jeopardy.
Last year in an article I published in June, I had pegged nearly a dozen coaches that should have been considering a tweak of the resume just in case.
Of those dozen or so, only Ron Zook, Ron English, Steve Fairchild, and Bob Toledo escaped the iron fist. I guess as Meatloaf would say, an average of two out of three ain't bad.
This year's list is a bit more prestigious and contains coaches who have won National Titles, multiple conference crowns, and maybe at one point were considered, "untouchable."
Here is a look at 10 coaches I am keeping my eye on in 2011 to see if they will finish what they started, or will be sitting in the ESPN studio by Halloween.
