After all the hirings of new head coaches made after the 2007 college football season, I didn’t post any thoughts right away. I wanted to wait a few months to think and analyze the hirings. For some, my thoughts didn’t change at all. It was either good or bad. For others, I’m glad I waited to post this blog. This is one of the first years that there was not a hire that I completely panned in the end, and like something about each one. When I do my rankings, I go by the fit between the coach and the school, and not by program prestige like many other columnists do. From best to worst, here’s my list of the head coaching hirings heading into the 2008 college football season.
