The Hot Seat has long been an accurate predictor in terms of job security. Over the last five years, 23 of the 35 coaches rated 4 or worse in the preseason eventually lost their jobs (66%).
Entering the 2022 season, there are only eight coaches on the proverbial hot seat (rated 4 or higher).
Only eight, eh? Seems like a tight fit for both Coach 404 and Bryan Harsin, amirite? Nah.
Each is impressive in his own way. Harsin’s managed to get there in only his second season, while Collins has managed to trash his prospects at a place that really doesn’t have the money to get rid of him. Salut, gentlemen!
