This list could be called “Coaches Most Likely to Be Hired By a Powerhouse Soon.” These are the coaches that have taken a struggling program and built them into a winner. In other words, these are the coaches doing the most with less. For that, they will have the attention of big time programs when they are looking for their next coach.
In the past 5 years, we have seen coaches like Scott Frost, P.J. Fleck, Jeff Brohm, Tom Herman, and now Josh Heupel land high profile jobs by elevating smaller programs. They all made this list before they were hired. On the flipside, a coach that lands in the bottom 10 is most likely going to be fired or get one more year to try and right the ship.
