Lane Kiffin USCWe are just two weeks into the college football season, and it is very clear that some of the coaches that were on the hot seat are once again really in some deep trouble when push comes to shove. Join us today at Bankroll Sports as we look at our college football coaches on the hot seat in 2013.

FIRED Lane Kiffin, USC Trojans – Kiffin’s days were numbered before this season ever started. It really is clear that this is a man that shouldn’t be leading a major college football program. It wasn’t Kiffin’s fault that he was handcuffed by scholarship limitations the entire time that he was at USC, but the bottom line is that his 65 guys should be more talented than the 85 guys on the other side of the field more often than not. Expectations were higher than what ever could have reasonably been expected, and they eventually blew up in USC’s face with Kiffin being shown the door.

FIRED Don Treadwell, Miami (OH) Redhawks – We really didn’t see this one coming. The Redhawks have been bad for quite some time, but they were epically bad at the start of this season. Something had to be changed, and what ended up happening was the dismissal of both the head coach and the offensive coordinator of the team. Has anything gotten better since Treadwell’s dismissal? Not really. The team is still one of the worst at the FBS level this year, and we know FCS teams that would scoff at how bad this unit really has turned out to be.

FIRED Paul Pasqualoni, Connecticut Huskies – This UConn team might be the worst of all of the automatic qualifying schools in the entire country. Pasqualoni inherited a team that had just gone to the BCS and was at its height. There was no way that that expectation could have become the regular in Storrs, but at least staying competitive was a reasonable goal. That’s all that was asked of Pasqualoni, and he couldn’t even do that. This team was losing far too many games to teams like Towson, Buffalo, and South Florida to warrant anyone in this football program keeping their jobs.

Charlie Weis, Kansas Jayhawks – Weis is still very much so in some trouble this year, though at least he has some competitive games under his belt and an offense that looks like it is starting to get its act together. Still, a couple Big XII wins is the minimum expectation this year in Lawrence, and if not, expect this team to fire its third coach in the last five years.

Ron English, Eastern Michigan Eagles – English knows that his days in Ypsilanti are numbered. Eastern Michigan just never got better during his tenure, and time is out to prove that he is really the man to lead this team to the next level. Forget about a bowl game and forget about the idea that this could be a competitive team in the MAC. No competitiveness will surely send him out the door in the first week of December at the latest.

Mack Brown, Texas Longhorns – Is Brown going to be asked to step down at the end of the season? Almost certainly. We just don’t see how the regents in Austin are going to tolerate any more mediocrity out of Brown. However, this is a man that did just upset Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry, and getting that Gatorade bath might be the last great memory that we have of him as a coach. Just the thought of perhaps bringing in Nick Saban to coach this team in 2014 is enough to want to get Brown out the door as soon as possible.

Norm Chow, Hawaii Warriors – Hawaii was atrocious last season, and what we are seeing is that the team is once again atrocious. This pro style offense is at least tolerable to watch, but the Warriors don’t have the talent to execute, especially in the trenches. This team is getting killed both along the OL and the DL, and Chow has no answers. At just 3-15 in two seasons with the Warriors, Chow is clearly in a lot of trouble.
