HOT SEAT: 8 college coaches feeling the pressure
August 11, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
There were only 20 head coaching changes after last season — that’s a low number in these high-pressure, high-stakes times — which means there will be plenty of low- hanging fruit on the coaching tree this winter. Here is a look at eight coaches clinging to life, trying to avoid being gathered up in what figures to be a big winter crop:
1. Will Muschamp, Florida
He put in a go-go-go offense this spring, trying to put some distance between these Gators and the ones who went 4-8 and averaged a ghastly 18.8 points last season. Rocking a white visor in the spring game was a nice call back to the Steve Spurrier glory days, but Muschamp’s 22-16 record is more like the Zooker than the Ol’ Ball Coach or that Urban Meyer guy.
