College Football Coach of the Year is a title that might seem secondary to most coaches, but usually the award is emblematic of his team's successes on the field.

We're already a quarter of the way through the 2011 college football season, and most teams are wrapping up their non-conference play. While it's probably too soon to tell who is the odds-on favorite to win the COTY award this season, it's never too early to begin power ranking the coaches based on their team's early season performance.
