Dennis Dodd's 2014 Coach Hot Seat Ratings


Below is a list of Dennis Dodd's College Football Coach Hot Seat Ratings for the 2014 season.

Only one coach got the dreaded "5" rating this season, FIU's Ron Turner. He's only in his second season at FIU, but went 1-11 last season.

Four coaches have a least a 4.0 rating, including three from major conferences. Kansas' Charlie Weis and Virginia's Mike London each got a 4.5, while Florida's Will Muschamp and Hawaii's Norm Chow each received a 4.
