Dennis Dodd's 2015 Coach Hot Seat Ratings


More Hot Seat: Dennis Dodd: Nine coaches must step up in 2015

Below is a list of Dennis Dodd's College Football Coach Hot Seat Ratings for the 2015 season.

Two coaches received the dreaded "5" rating this season, Illinois' Tim Beckman and Virginia's Mike London. Beckman has gone 12-25 in three seasons at Illinois, while London has a 23-38 record in five seasons. Neither coach has won a bowl game.

Seven coaches have a least a 4 rating, including two from major conferences. Colorado's Mike MacIntyre, Iowa State's Paul Rhoads both have a 4 rating.
