The Burning on Fire Hot Seat Has Been Passed To A New Generation of Sorry Bastards and May God Almighty Help the College and NFL Head Coaches That Find Themselves on the Hot Seat in the Coming Years! – The 2015 Preseason Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Numbers 1 – 10 Hot Seat Head Coaches Analysis Heading Into 2015 College Football Season – The Highwaymen for the OLD Coaches Hot Seat Members…Enjoy!

Echoing the Inauguration Speech of John F. Kennedy for the Presidency on January 21, 1960…

“We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans–born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage–and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.”

….the Burning on Fire Hot Seat was passed along this past week at Lake Tahoe to a new generation of Sorry Bastards that are…

Ready, Willing and Able to Light up the Asses of College and NFL Head Coaches

….and who are fired-up that they now have the controls of Coaches Hot Seat!


There is a lot that could be written in this spot about how much fun the original seven Coaches Hot Seat members have had over the past EIGHT football seasons…

Lighting up the Asses of College and NFL Head Coaches

….but let’s not linger on the past but instead focus on the future and with that in mind indeed the…

A chair on fire… metaphor “In The Hot Seat”

…has been passed and…

May God Almighty Help the College and NFL Head Coaches that find themselves on the Hot Seat in the coming years…because these guys now running Coaches Hot Seat…

Don’t play around and for some reason don’t like it at all when people that coach football for a living making millions of dollars in the process cry like babies when someone critiques their performance

….and as the original seven Coaches Hot Seat members fade into the background as now merely voting members of our little club we again say…

May God Almighty Help the College and NFL Head Coaches that find themselves on the Hot Seat!

Godspeed and Good Luck to you Head Coaches and we really mean that!

Welcome to the NEW Coaches Hot Seat for the 2015 College and NFL Football seasons which will be the NINTH football season that Coaches Hot Seat has covered and the new leadership of Coaches Hot Seat is honored to be taking over things here and lighting up the asses of head football coaches that deserve it!

There will be only a few noticeable changes in Coaches Hot Seat in the coming days, weeks and months and just like in the past EIGHT seasons in August of each year Coaches Hot Seat members vote on and then produce the….

Top 10 Head Coaches on the 2015 Preseason Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

#11 – 20 Hot Seat Head Coaches on Monday – August 24

#21 – 30 Hot Seat Head Coaches on Tuesday – August 25

PaulRhoads83883 (1)

1.  Paul Rhoads, Iowa State – Paul Rhoads is entering his seventh season as the head coach of the Iowa State Cyclones and has posted records of…

Overall:  29 – 46

Big 12:  14 – 38

But the real story is the past two seasons when the Cyclones under Rhoads have put up records of….

Overall:  5 – 19

Big 12:  2 – 16

Sorry Paul….that’s just not good enough…even at Iowa State. You are making almost $2 million dollars a year Paul and if you can’t get some more wins on the board in 2015 then why in the Hell would Iowa State keep paying you almost $2 million dollars a year but then we wonder why Iowa pays Kirk Ferentz $4 million dollars a year when a chimpanzee could post the kind of records that Ferentz has posted coaching the Hawkeyes in recent years.

Get off your ass Paul Rhoads which means get your team..the Iowa State Cyclones…off its ass!

Here’s the scary thing for Paul Rhoads and Iowa State…they open the season against…

Northern Iowa
At Toledo

Hell, Iowa State could start the season 0 – 3 and would have lost to two teams Iowa State should always beat and a team in Iowa that we would not even call mediocre in recent years because that would be an insult to all the mediocre folks in the world!

Do you think there are a few very successful FCS-level head football coaches that would love to have the Iowa State job?

You bet your ass there are several that would walk from where they are now coaching for the Iowa State head coaching job!


2.  Darrell Hazell, Purdue – Below are the win/loss records that the last Purdue head coach….Danny Hope…who was fired from his job…..put up before Darrell Hazell took over the Boilermakers in 2013:

2009:  5 – 7
2010:  4 – 8
2011:  7 – 6 – Bowl Game
2012:  6 – 6 – Bowl Game

Below are the win/loss records that Darrell Hazell has put up at Purdue:

2013:  1 – 11
2014:  3 – 9

Memo to the fans and folks at Purdue: If your football team is going to a bowl game think twice before you fire the head coach and some may recall that Coaches Hot Seat didn’t even have Danny Hope on the Hot Seat late in the 2012 college football season when Hope was sent packing which has us thinking that if Hazell cannot get things turned around then an important question is who will be hiring the next head football coach of the Boilermakers?

Here is how Purdue opens the 2015 college football season:

At Marshall
Indiana State
Virginia Tech
Bowling Green
At Michigan State
At Wisconsin

Got 1 – 6 after the first seven games for Purdue football?

We do which means Darrell Hazell and his Purdue football players had better Damn done something incredible in the offseason and Fall camp or the 2015 season could become a Complete Freaking Disaster in a Helluva hurry!


3.  Kevin Wilson, Indiana – We have seen a slight and we mean a slight improvement in the Indiana Hoosiers in Kevin Wilson’s four seasons as the head coach at IU and 2015 we will be looking for a larger jump from Wilson’s team because these records…

Overall:  14 – 34

Big Ten:  6 – 26

….is just flat-out…

Not Good Enough Kevin Wilson…even at Indiana!

Here’s the good news for Kevin Wilson and Indiana…with these games to open the season…

Southern Illinois
Western Kentucky
At Wake Forest

…the Hoosiers should be no worse than 3 – 1 when Ohio State rolls into Bloomington on October 3.

Coach ‘em up Kevin Wilson because there is only one way to get off the Hot Seat….

6 – 6 record and trip to a bowl game!


4.  Al Golden, Miami – No doubt Al Golden had the same kind of hyena laugh that we did last week when no doubt some Swiss Rolls Loving First-Rate Ass Kisser floated Lane Kiffin’s name out there as a possible replacement at Miami if Al Golden’s ass gets run out of town because there is not someone…

Stupid Enough to Hire Lane Kiffin in Miami…..Right?


Hell…who knows…there was a stupid owner in Oakland and two stupid athletic directors at Tennessee and USC who are now either dead or out of their jobs who hired Lane Kiffin so there could very well be a Very Damn Stupid Moron in South Florida who would hire Lane Kiffin to coach the Miami Hurricanes…

Hold it a second…No One Is That Damn Stupid!

Regardless if there is a Complete Moron or Morons in South Florida that would consider hiring Lane Kiffin there is no getting around the fact that Al Golden will either get Miami to 9-plus wins plus in 2015 or the Al Golden era at Miami will be over….PERIOD.

Here is how Al Golden and his Miami team will open the season:

At Cincinnati
At Florida State

Recommendation for Al Golden:  Have your Miami team at 4 – 0 when you travel to Tallahassee on October 10 because you need at least…

9 Wins in 2015

…to return to coach the Miami Hurricanes in 2016!

Good Luck to you Al Golden!

5.  Doug Martin, New Mexico State – Doug Martin took over the very tough job of coaching the New Mexico State football team in 2013 and in the last two seasons Martin has put up a record of…

Overall:  4 – 20

Another  2 – 10 season at NMSU and that’s it for Doug Martin in Las Cruces…right?

One would think so.


6.  Ron Turner, Florida International – Ron Turner has been a head coach at three different schools….San Jose State, Illinois, Florida International for…

11 Seasons

….and Ron Turner has put up this many .500 or better records in those 11 seasons:

3 Seasons at .500 or better!

Here is Ron Turner’s overall win/loss record in those 11 Seasons:

47 – 80

Here is Ron Turner’s record at FIU the last 2 Seasons:

5 – 19

No…we don’t understand why Ron Turner is the head football coach at FIU either but then there are rumors that someone in South Florida might make a hire worse than Ron Turner by hiring Lane Kiffin at Miami so maybe athletic directors in South Florida are just….

Complete Freaking Idiots!

Oh…FIU opens the season…

At Indiana

Got 0 – 2 to start the season?

YES…FIU will!


7.  Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech – For all the talk that Kliff Kingsbury was the second coming of Darrell Royal in 2013 Pretty Boy Kingsbury crashed back to Earth in 2014 and now has posted the following records at Texas Tech:

Overall:  12 – 13

Big 12:  6 – 12

Got if Johnny Manziel isn’t at Texas A&M when Kliff Kingsbury got to College Station no one would know Kliff Kingsbury’s name?

Why yes we do!

Here’s the problem for Pretty Boy Kingsbury….TCU and Baylor are sitting on top of a Big 12 and if TCU and Baylor can be on top of the Big 12 then for Damn sure Texas Tech can as well which means 2015 will be a critical season for Pretty Boy Kingsbury which makes the Red Raiders first five games of the season critical with a capital C!

Sam Houston
At Arkansas

What if Texas Tech is 2 – 3 after the Baylor game on October 3 with the Red Raiders facing 5 of their last 7 games on the road in the Big 12?

That would be trouble with a capital T for Pretty Boy Kingsbury!

The new nickname for Kliff Kingsbury at Coaches Hot Seat is…

PBK = Pretty Boy Kingsbury

Let’s try that out in a sentence:

Did you see that PBK was doing another photo shoot while his coaching career is going in the toilet?

Hey PBK works great for us!

Now let’s see what PBK can do in Year 3 at Texas Tech!

8.  Trent Miles, Georgia State – Trent Miles has been the head football coach at new FBS school Georgia State for two seasons and has posted records of…

Overall:  1 – 23

Sun Belt:  0 – 15

Yep…those kind of records will land your ass on the Hot Seat for sure!

Oh…Georgia State plays at Oregon on September 19! That should be great fun for Trent Miles and his Panthers!

Coach ‘em up Trent Miles!


9.  Todd Monken, Southern Miss – Southern Miss did get a little better in Todd Monken’s second season improving to a 3 – 9 record in 2014 from a 1 – 11 record in 2013 and we will be looking for a similar improvement in 2015 with us putting a target of…

5 Wins

…for the Golden Eagles on the board for this upcoming season which will get Todd Monken’s ass off the Hot Seat.

4 Wins of Less…

Got Hot Seat?

Todd Monken will all season long!


10.  Mike London, Virginia – We can only assume the person creating the non-conference football schedule at Virginia doesn’t really give a Damn about the head coach or football team for that matter because this non-conference schedule for UVA is Absolutely Freaking Insane!

Notre Dame
William & Mary
Boise State

Mike London needs SIX wins in 2015 minimum to return to coach the Virginia Cavaliers in 2016 and more than likely UVA will have to split their non-conference schedule with a 2 – 2 record to have a chance to win SIX games this season with an ACC Conference that is getting tougher by the day.

Good Luck Mike!
