There is always LOTS of debate here at Coaches Hot Seat on the best up-and-coming head coaches in college football that are ready for a step-up or return to a Power 5 Conference level team and after much discussion, plenty of wings, lots of chips & salsa, and a good bit of cold beer below is the 2015….

22 Best Non-Power 5 Conference Head Coaches Ready to Move Up

….which is the list we would be working off if we were sitting in an athletic director position at a Power 5 level school and looking for a current head coach at a lower-level school to hire to take over our school’s football program.

Now, each school is different and each of the below current head coaches would fit well at some schools and not fit so well at others and that is something that and athletic director needs to take into account which really goes to an AD understanding his own school first before he decides what kind and which coach and/or coaches he would target to be his next head football coach.  We also have a list of College Assistant Coaches that are Ready to Move Up to Head Coaching positions, but we are still hotly debating that list right now!

We could include a few comments on each of the head coaches below BUT Hell why not just get to the list and be done with it already so….

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Thursday, November 12, 2015 – William Tecumseh Sherman

 

WilliamTSherman88119

“An Army is a collection of armed men obliged to obey one man. Every change in the rules which impairs the principle weakens the army.”

And

“An army to be useful must be a unit, and out of this has grown the saying, attributed to Napoleon, but doubtless spoken before the days of Alexander, that an army with an inefficient commander was better than one with two able heads.”

And

“Courage – a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.”

And

“I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.”

And

“I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are.”

And

“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.”

And

“I make up my opinions from facts and reasoning, and not to suit any body but myself. If people don’t like my opinions, it makes little difference as I don’t solicit their opinions or votes.”

And

“In our Country… one class of men makes war and leaves another to fight it out.”

And

“It’s a disagreeable thing to be whipped.”

And

“My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.”

And

“If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve.”

And

“I think I understand what military fame is; to be killed on the field of battle and have your name misspelled in the newspapers.”

And

“War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.”

And

“Every attempt to make war easy and safe will result in humiliation and disaster.”

And

“Grant stood by me when I was crazy, and I stood by him when he was drunk, and now we stand by each other.”

And

“War is the remedy that our enemies have chosen, and I say let us give them all they want.”

And

“I know I had no hand in making this war, and I know I will make more sacrifices today than any of you to secure peace.”

And

“There will soon come an armed contest between capital and labor. They will oppose each other, not with words and arguments, but with shot and shell, gun-powder and cannon. The better classes are tired of the insane howling of the lower strata and they mean to stop them.”

And

“There is many a boy here today who looks on war as all glory, but, boys, it is all hell.”

And

“I beg to present you as a Christmas gift the city of Savannah.”

And

“If the people raise a great howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity seeking.”
