College Football Scores: 5 Coaches Behind the 8 Ball After Week 3
Watching your team lose is not fun. It's very hard to watch your team being out-coached, out-played and out-manned every single week. You like to say that the coach should be fired. It's very fun to do, unless you are that head coach who is on the "hot seat".
It is hard to think that there are coaches, after just three weeks of football, that should be fired from their position. However, we are in an age of two things.
The first is we do not care what you did in the past, we want to know what have you done lately?
The second is, football fans live week-to-week. If you put together a losing streak, the people will start calling for your job; while trying to find a replacement.
Here on this slideshow we will take a look, that after only three weeks of football, these coaches either should be, or will be replaced.
Kansas Jayhawks- Turner Gill

Kansas' head coach Turner Gill came to the Jayhawks program with a lot of praise from his work with Buffalo University. He came in replacing the successful Mark Mangino, after Mangino was fired due to conduct with his players.
But since Gill took over, he has been unable to capture the success that Mangino had.
In Gill's second year as Kansas' head coach he is 5-10 overall while being 2-1 this year.
Today, his Kansas team gave up 768 yards of total offense to Georgia Tech losing the game 66-24.
UCLA- Rick Neuheisel

Rick Neuheisel came into his tenure as UCLA's head coach as a coach that can turn a program around. He had success at his other coaching stops at Colorado and Washington. However, his time at the UCLA program has been a big disappointment.
In his four years at UCLA he has a sub-.500 winning percentage at 16-23, going 8-19 in the Pac 10 conference.
This year UCLA is 1-1.
The game against Texas isn't over yet, but after a quarter-and-a half of football, his Bruins are down 21-0 and he has had to replace his quarterback after three turnovers.
Mississippi State- Dan Mullen

In just his third year of work at Mississippi State, Dan Mullen has had one horrible year ('09) and one great year ('10). This year had a lot of promise for the Bulldogs, but has started out flat.
In 2009, Mullen took the job, his first head coaching job, and went 5-7 overall, 3-5 in the SEC.
2010 was a lot better and seemed to point Mississippi State in the right direction of the SEC, going 9-4 overall but only 4-4 in the SEC.
2011 has Mullen on the "hot seat", as the Bulldogs lost a close game to the defending National Champions in Auburn, and on Thursday Night to LSU.
The loss to LSU was an embarrassing one for Mullen's team and may cost him his job at the end of the year.
Georgia- Mark Richt

Mark Richt is the longest tenured coach on this list. He's been with the Georgia program since 2001 and has led the Bulldogs to some great years. He's been to three Sugar Bowls, had six years of 10 wins or more, and has been in a bowl game every year he has coached at Georgia.
But, it's the "What have you done for me lately" that has Mark on the hot seat.
Last year, his Bulldogs went 6-7, his first and only losing year. While this year he lost his first two games against Boise State and South Carolina.
The Georgia fanbase has seen other programs in the SEC win the National Championship the last five years, while Georgia has seemed to either stay in play or regress.
It's a win now world we live in. A world that may cost Richt his job at the end of the year.
Ole Miss- Houston Nutt

Houston Nutt came to Ole Miss with a big track record. He came from the University of Arkansas with a record of 75-48 overall and a winning record in the SEC at 42-38.
His first two years at Ole Miss were great, going 9-4 overall with two victories in the Cotton Bowl.
But last year and this year may cost him his spot at the Ole Miss program.
Going 4-8 in '10 didn't give him too many supporters down in Mississippi. But, everyone has one bad year. However, it's what the Ole Miss Rebels are doing this year that may/will get Nutt fired.
A loss today against Vanderbilt (31-7) may have been the last straw for Houston Nutt as the Ole Miss head coach.
