Bama

After Bill Curry left Bama for Kentucky, Gene Stallings was hired. He had been fired with five games remaining in the 1989 season by the Phoenix Cardinals. NFL and their cheerleading media expect you to understand that that's okay and not the reverse.

Stallings was National Coach of the Year in 1992 when Bama claimed the National Championship and led them to victory in the first ever SEC Championship game. He resigned after losing the '96 SEC-C game to Florida.

Stallings had a 38-16 SEC record which prorates to 5.6-2.4 over an 8-game schedule.


Mike DuBose had an SEC record of 16-16 including being named the '99 SEC Coach of the Year.  After coaching the DL for Tampa Bay in the late-80s, DuBose was Stallings' DL coach for his seven seasons at Bama.  DuBose was previously DL coach for Ray Perkins.

In the spring prior to his best season, DuBose was accused of having an affair with Deborah Gibson and later settled out of court for over a quarter-of-a-million dollars. DuBose was able to stay on despite Gibson having worked in the Athletic Administration.

In 2000, Bama had a poor season despite being ranked third in the preseason. They lost  non-conference games to Southern Miss. 21-0 and to UCF at home. Bama received NCAA sanctions from DuBose's time as head coach.

For 2001, Mal Moore hired Dennis Franchione over Frank Beamer, Butch Davis, and Tommy Bowden.  Franchione led Bama to their first bowl win in five years in the Independence Bowl. Bama won the SEC-W in '02 and was not eligible for the SEC-CG or a bowl game.  Bama faced a five-year penalty including a two-year bowl ban and loss of 21 scholarships.

Franchione was reportedly offered $15 million for 10 years but left Bama for A&M to replace RC Slocum. He did bid farewell to the players via videoconference so Dani did not feel compelled to make the trip to College Station and dress him down.

Franchione was 10-6 in SEC games.


Mike Price's Washington State team had whupped Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl 34-14 and he was hired to succeed Franchione. In Pensacola, Price wound up with private dancer Destiny Stahl and never coached a game at Bama.

There's rarely a more biting media account than from one who covers the school last spurned. "Mike Price went into hard-boozing, hard-partying Tuscaloosa after more than a decade in rural, brew-sipping Pullman and made the mistake of believing he was invited to the party as a participant rather than a myopic chaperone.

"His first mistake was to try to make football practice fun and to publicly flaunt that fact in a place where having fun at that level of college football is heresy.

"His second mistake was to get drunk and make a fool of himself before earning his stripes."

"It's bad, especially because he's married," said daughter Brooke. "Come on, use some common sense!"
She's 11.



The Miami Dolphins QB coach was hired in May 2003 and at the time was the second youngest coach in D1. After a rough start, Mike Shula led Bama to a Cotton Bowl victory over TTech 13-10 following the '05 season. He received a 6-year, $1.8 million per year extension.  After a 2006 OT loss to Arkansas in Fayetteville, things fell apart. One week after losing to Auburn, Moore paid Shula $4 million to leave.

Shula was 13-19 in SEC play. Due to victories vacated in a text book case, Shula's official SEC record is 5-19.

DC Joe Kines served as interim HC and coached Bama in the Independence Bowl.


Many including Jim Mandich were surprised to learn that Bama had hired Nick Saban from the Dolphins immediately following their 2006 season. Saban is the ultimate example of an SEC maxim that has held true: "Hire a dissatisfied NFL coach who was once successful in big time college football."

Saban was the National Coach of the Year in 2008 and led Bama to BCS National Championships in 2009 and 2011.  He also led Bama to the SEC Championship in 2009.

His official SEC record is 28-8 (textbook case).  However, if you discount the '07 season due to fallout from the prior coach's tenures, Saban is 28-4 in his last four seasons.

Tennessee

Johnny Majors was the '56 Heisman runner-up running the WildVol. Many Tennessee fans considered him the nation's best player on a winning team. He coached a national championship team at Pitt and returned to his alma mater, a hero. Majors' last season as the Vol HC was the expansion year of '92. Poised to move to #1 in the polls, Tennessee saw a last second FG by visiting Arkansas send the capacity crowd into a tizzy.  After Majors misses early season games recovering from heart surgery, it is believed that long-time OL coach Phil Fulmer worked the administration and eased Majors out of the HC job. Majors' official SEC record during the expansion era was 3-3 (57-40-3 overall).

It was the self-deprecating sense of humor that sustained Vol fans during this timeframe. In '86, a hireling was hawking Barry Manilow music on a Memphis street corner. When informed that those aren't very good records, the waif replied, "Sir, you don't need a good record to get to the Liberty Bowl."

This was helpful as they watched Peyton Manning lose early season match ups to Florida in each of his four years in that era prior to the four-team playoff. In 1998, current USC assistant T Martin led Fulmer's team to his BCS national championship and national coach of the year honors.

Fulmer's SEC record, including a forfeit courtesy of Bama, was 98-34 which prorates to about 6-2. Fulmer had seven seasons with 7-1 or 8-0 conference records. He was 81-19 in SEC play prior to the '05 season. He was let go after needing a win over Kentucky to finish 5th in the SEC East in 2008.

Lane Kiffin was fired four games into the 2008 season by Al Davis and the Raiders. In the NFL that's okay, just don't voluntarily leave before the season ends. Mike Hamilton hired Kiffin to replace Fulmer and he brought Monte Kiffin and Ed Orgeron as top assistants.

Kiffin attempted to bring USC tradition to Knoxville while intentionally pushing Volunteer tradition into the background. He also publicly took on Urban Meyer and constantly put Mike Slive on edge. In an early season Florida game, Kiffin played a deliberate style that allowed Tennessee to cover the spread and claim a morale victory [phrase intentionally chosen as the words "moral" and "victory" together in this context would be an oxymoron].

Kiffin left for USC after posting an SEC conference record of 4-4. Students set small fires near the athletic administration building, burning mattresses and Kiffin paraphernalia.

Despite rumors ranging from Jon Gruden to Texas coach-in-waiting Will Muschamp, the Vols hired the son of former UGa coach Vince Dooley. Derek Dooley was the AD and head football coach at LaTech where he had gone 12-12 in WAC games.

At Tennessee, Dooley has an SEC conference record of 4-12 in two seasons including the Vols first back-to-back losing records since the '10-11 teams prior to WWI. In his first season, Dooley twice was heading to mid-field in celebration only to have an official's decision upon review ultimately reverse the game outcome. Dooley claimed to go "8-5 in post-game handshakes." His '11 team snapped a 26-game winning streak over Kentucky [the longest single school domination over another in the FBS]. Kentucky was forced to use a senior WR at the QB position. Tennessee failed to go to a bowl game due to the loss. Some believe the younger players didn't want to go bowling.

LSU

A former A&M DB and assistant to Bear Bryant, Danny Ford, and Jackie Sherrill, Curley Hallman coached Southern Miss. to road wins over Bama, Auburn, and Florida State.  LSU hired Hallman to replace Mike Archer following the 1990 season. Hallman had the lowest winning percentage in LSU history. His record in SEC games over four seasons was 10-21 (7-17 during the expansion era).

In '91, Gerry DiNardo had inherited a Vandy program with back-to-back 1-10 records and took them to an average of 5-6 over the next four seasons (though no bowl game). LSU had had six consecutive losing seasons when DiNardo became coach.

After leading LSU to two Independence and one Peach Bowl bid in his first three seasons, Dinardo's program began to decline. After an 0-7 SEC start, Mark Emmert fired Dinardo. Interim Hal Hunter was coach when LSU defeated  Arkansas 35-10 to end LSU's decade of the 90s.

DiNardo's SEC record was 18-20-1.

After four seasons of just above .500 ball, Nick Saban coached Michigan State to a Top 10 finish and New Year's Day Bowl bid in 1999. He was hired by LSU for the 2000 season.

Saban's teams finished with 5-3 conference records his first three seasons. In 2003, LSU won the BCS National Championship and Saban was National Coach of the Year. After a 6-2 SEC run in '04, Saban left to coach the Dolphins.

Saban's overall SEC record at LSU was 28-12.

Les Miles had led Oklahoma State to 5th in the Big 12 South and an Alamo Bowl loss when he was hired by LSU to replace Saban starting with the 2005 season.

Miles' teams have won the SEC twice and in 2007 won the BCS NCG despite  multi-OT losses to both Kentucky and Arkansas. LSU became the first SEC school to lose a BCS-NC game when a then 13-0 team lost to Bama in New Orleans. Les was the national coach of the year for 2011.

Les Miles' SEC conference record is 41-15 over seven seasons.

Florida

Steve Spurrier won the Heisman while a UF QB/PK in 1966 only one year after Stokely-Van Camp had begun selling Gatorade. As a head coach, he led the '89 Duke team to their first bowl game since the Blue Devils defeated Lance Alworth and Arkansas in the '61 Cotton Bowl.

Spurrier returned to Florida to replace Waldon-native Gary Darnell. Darnell coached UF for seven games as a mid-season replacement for Galen Hall. His first Gator squad was ineligible for post-season play.

The Head Ball Coach was 87-12 in SEC games for the Gators. Florida was conference champions in '91, '93, '94, '95, '96, and 2000.  The Gators were National Champs in '96.

Spurrier left Florida following the 2001 season. He received a five-year, $25 million contract with the Redskins.

Ron Zook was a DB at Miami (O.), "The Cradle of Coaches". Zook became an assistant for Spurrier in '91 leaving Ohio State and Zook replaced him as Head Coach beginning with the '02 season. Zook's hiring generated a lot of energy among the fan base, not all positive. Three five-loss seasons ended Zook's career at UF.

Zook did not win a home game over a ranked foe and was criticized for puckering up at home. He coached consecutive road wins over LSU, Arkansas, and UGa in '03. 

Ron Zook's SEC record was 16-8.  He coached at Illinois until last season.

Batesville-native Charlie Strong coached Florida's Peach Bowl loss after Zook's last season.

Florida hired Utah head coach Urban Meyer who complimented Zook on the players he had left behind. Meyer's Utah team went undefeated winning the Fiesta Bowl over Pitt.

Urban Meyer had a 36-12 SEC record in six seasons at UF. His teams won the BCS-NC in '06 and '08 as well as the SEC-CG both seasons.  Controversy surrounded Meyer's season ends in '09 and '10 regarding whether he would return. Meyer left UF after an 8-5 '10 season to spend more time with family. He was named Ohio State's coach for the '12 season, one year after Tressel's dismissal. Meyer is the fastest coach to 100 wins since Bud Wilkinson.

In 2008, UT hired Will Muschamp away from Auburn to be DC. Following the '08 season, Muschamp was named coach-in-waiting to eventually succeed Mack Brown.

Florida hired Muschamp and he completed his first season in '11.

Will Muschamp's SEC record following the '11 season was 3-5.

Auburn

Pat Dye had coached Wyoming for one season when he interviewed for the Auburn job as AD and head football coach following the 1980 season. Dye apparently correctly answered, "sixty minutes" when asked how long it would take him to beat Bama. He replaced Doug Barfield who had followed Shug Jordan. He replaced the coach who replaced he legend.  Dye was 48-27-3 in SEC games with his last season being the first expansion season of '92. He was 2-5-1 and fifth in the SEC-W.

Pat Dye lost his AD position following the '91 season. NCAA sanctions were levied for payments to Eric Ramsey. Corky and Larry Blakeney were implicated via tape recordings. Auburn currently plays home games on Pat Dye Field in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Beginning with the '93 season, Terry Bowden was hired from Samford, and inherited scholarship reductions, a one-year television ban, and a two-year postseason ban. Bowden became the first coach to have an undefeated first season in D1. He was 14-1-1 in the SEC after two seasons with no post-season experience including a 20-game winning streak. He was 16-13 in conference over the next four seasons with his last Auburn team, the '98 team, finishing 6th in the SEC-W.

Bowden was replaced mid-season in '98 by DC Bill Oliver. Oliver finished 0-3 in the SEC and retired from football coaching when he did not get the Auburn job for the '99 season.

Camden native Tommy Tuberville had gone 12-20 at Ole Miss when they "carried him out of Oxford in a pine box" and hired him at Auburn.

Tuberville was 51-29 in SEC games over his tenure from '99 thru '08. He was National Coach of the Year in '04, the year his team was SEC champs. His 13-0 team was not included in the era prior to the four-team play-off.

Following a 2-6 SEC record in '08, Jay Jacobs claimed that Tuberville resigned. He received a $5.1 million separation package.

Gene Chizik was a prominent name on hot seat lists at Iowa State following a 0-8 Big 12 North run in '08. Jacobs met some criticism when hiring the former Auburn DC.

Chizik is currently 15-9 in SEC games after three seasons. He was national coach of the year in '10 when his team went 14-0 winning the BCS-NC and SEC-CG.

Georgia

Ray Goff was a 33-year-old running backs coach when he was chosen to replace the Vince Dooley starting with the 1989 season.  In seven seasons, Goff had only one team win as many as five SEC games. The 1992 team was 6-2, finished in the top ten, and played in the Citrus Bowl. Ray Goff was 24-28-1 in SEC games.

Jim Donnan had led Marshall to five consecutive 11-plus win seasons when he was tapped to replace Goff and coach UGa for five seasons beginning in 1996. Donnan led UGa to four straight bowl wins but lost three straight against GaTech and struggled against UT and UF. Donnan is currently alleged to have been involved in a Ponzi scheme that has cost many coaches and others millions of dollars.  Donnan was 25-15 in SEC games at UGa. His last season, 2000, was his last as a head coach. He was the 1997 SEC Coach of the Year.

The current dean of SEC coaches at one school is Mark Richt. Richt had been the Offensive Coordinator and QB Coach at Florida State for 11 seasons. UGa has won the SEC in '02 and '05. They finished first or tied for first in the SEC-E, five times. Richt was SEC Coach of the Year the years UGa won the SEC title.  Richt's SEC record is 60-28 going into the '12 season.

Richt was on the hot seat in '11 coming off of a losing season and dropping the first two games. The team rallied with help from a favorable schedule to finish first in the SEC-E.  Richt was given a performance-laden extension without a significant raise. Richt no longer has a buyout clause in his contract. UGa enters the '12 season with a favorable schedule (no games against LSU, Bama, nor Arkansas).

Mississippi State

Jackie Sherrill had been three years removed from A&M when he was hired for the State job beginning the 1991 season. While not receiving a show cause penalty, A&M had been penalized for lack of institutional control among other violations. State had won only 14 games total since 1986. Sherrill retired after the 2003 season as State's winningest coach at 75-75-1. and State was put on probation for four years.

Sherrill's team won their first game over Texas. They won the SEC-W in 1998 and earned a bid in the Cotton Bowl. State was 10-2 in 1999.

Sherrill's last two teams went 1-15 in the SEC. His overall SEC record was 43-59-1.


Sylvester Croom became the first black head coach in the SEC and took over State for the 2004 season. Croom had been a long-time NFL RB coach before coaching the Linebackers at Bama from the mid-70s to the mid-80s.

After going 4-20 in SEC play his first three seasons, Croom's team went 8-4 in 2007 including an Egg Bowl win. His team earned a Liberty Bowl bid which led to a win over UCF 10-3 in probably the most boring show of offense in a bowl game that at least one long-time State fan had ever witnessed. Croom received some Coach of the Year recognitions. After finishing 4-8 in 2008 including a 45-0 Egg Bowl loss to Nutt, Croom resigned.

Croom's overall SEC record at State was 10-30.


Dan Mullen was the OC for Florida and in process of a second National Champsionship when hired by State to be head coach. Mullen's team gave Florida a tough game in 2009. In 2010, State went 9-4 with a Gator Bowl win over Michigan. Mullen is yet to get his first win over any of Bama, LSU, Arkansas or Auburn.

Mullen is 9-15 in his SEC three seasons at State.

Gerry DiNardo disputes Mark Emmert's comment on his LSU academic record

 
Quote
"It all depends on how you define success," Emmert said. "At the time Nick Saban came in, we had the lowest graduation rate in the SEC. By the time he left, it was one of the highest graduation rates in the SEC.

"We had young men getting in all kinds of off-the-field problems before he showed up. By the time he left, we had virtually none of those."

DiNardo, now a college football analyst for the Big Ten Network, took to Twitter later Tuesday night to object to Emmert's statement.

"Yes, we had problems," DiNardo said in one tweet, "but what he said about academics was flat-out inaccurate."

Another DiNardo tweet: "As a result of my time at LSU, football was recognized for a 70 percent graduation rate by the College Football Association for the first time in school history, contrary to what Mark Emmert said."

South Carolina

Sparky Woods had been 25-9-1 in Southern Conference games coaching App State when he took the head coaching job for then independent South Carolina beginning with the 1989 season. Woods coaches five seasons in Columbia and was 5-11 in South Carolina's first two SEC seasons when he was let go. He was an assistant for Sherrill and Shula in the SEC before taking over at VMI.

Brad Scott was the OC for Bobby Bowden when he took over the SC job beginning with the 1994 season. SC was 4-4 in the SEC in '96 but lost their last ten games in 1998 finishing 1-10. Brad Scott was 12-27-1 in SEC games at SC. Scott has been an assistant at Clemson.

Lou Holtz had retired and left a lifetime contract at Notre Dame and Knute Rocke's all-time win record intact. After two years in broadcasting, Holtz became South Carolina's coach beginning in 1999. Holtz earned National Coach of the Year awards in 2000. He led SC to back-to-back Outback Bowl wins over Ohio State.

Lou Holtz retired from South Carolina following the 2004 season. His SEC record was 19-29 including a winless first season. There was a big fight in his last game with Clemson and SC chose to forego a bowl game due to the fracas. Holtz noted that he and former Ohio State coach Woody Hayes both ended their careers after "getting into a fight at the Clemson game". It was not known whether Holtz landed a punch. SC lost some scholarships due to five major infractions and a lack of institutional control.

In Steve Spurrier's last three games with the Redskins his team had been outscored 85-31. Following a pattern of once hugely successful college coaches who were disgruntled in the NFL, The Head Ball Coach took the SC job   starting with the 2005 season. He reportedly picked the Gamecocks over the Gators who had fired Ron Zook.

Spurrier has been 29-27 in SEC regular season games and got to face Auburn in the 2010 SEC championship game. South Carolina ran the table in the SEC-East in 2011 but finished second to UGa who did not draw Bama, LSU, nor Arkansas on their schedule. SC whooped Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl played Jan. 2, 2012.

Ole Miss

Billy Brewer took over at Ole Miss beginning with the 1983 and succeeding Steve Sloan. Brewer was the first Ole Miss insider hired since Coach Vaught's comeback ended in mid-70s. Brewer was 33-41 in SEC games over 11 seasons.

Brewer led Ole Miss to their first New Year's Day bowl game in over twenty years. In '91, after losing to Kentucky 35-6, a group of students, SABB or "Students Against Billy Brewer", purchased an ad calling for his firing.

Brewer's teams were banned from live television in '87. Following the '93 season another NCAA report led to a lack of institutional control. The AD and Brewer were fired in July 1994.

DC Joe Lee Dunn was named interim for the 1994 season. After going 2-6 in the SEC in '94, Dunn was named DC at Arkansas.

Tommy Tuberville coached Ole Miss from '95-98. Tuberville was SEC Coach of the Year in '97 after going 4-4 and landing in the Motor City Bowl. Tuberville was 12-20 in SEC games at Ole Miss. Two days after stating, "They'll have to carry me out of here in a pine box," Tuberville was hired at Auburn.

David Cutcliffe was the OC for Tennessee during the Manning years and the NC regular season with T Martin at QB. Cutcliffe coached Ole Miss from '98 thru '04. He had a 25-23 SEC record. He had winning records his first five years including a 10-3, '03 season with a Cotton Bowl victory and 7-1 SEC run.

After going 3-5 in the SEC in '04, AD Boone gave him an ultimatum to choose assistant coaches to fire. He refused and was fired where he landed as associate head coach and QB coach at Notre Dame.

Ed Orgeron was '04 National Recruiter of the Year as Asst. Head Coach at USC. Orgeron proved to be a successful recruiter at Ole Miss but could not translate the USC system into on-the-field success. After three seasons and a 3-21 SEC record, Orgeron was let go. After a season as the Saint's DL coach, Coach "O" allied with Lane Kiffin, first at Tennesse and now at USC.

Around the 2007 Thanksgiving season, Houston Nutt was hired as the Ole Miss coach. Nutt coached four seasons. It is perhaps not well known that Nutt led Ole Miss to their first consecutive New Year's Day bowl games in fifty years. After Nutt's team went 1-15 in SEC play his last two seasons as Coach Orgeron failed to continue to retain the players he recruited after no longer being on the Ole Miss payroll, Nutt was let go. A 2010 season opening loss to Jack Crowe's Jacksonville State team the morning after getting Oregon transfer QB Jeremiah Masoli eligible to play caused Nutt to lose staunch supporters.

Nutt's SEC record was 10-22 in four seasons.

Hugh Freeze was a former staff member for Ed Orgeron at Ole Miss. He was nicknamed "Snake" by his high school prodigy Michael Oher for trying to leverage his ties to land a job on Phillip Fulmer's staff at Tennessee. After Oher decided to attend his family's school, Freeze followed him Ole Miss. Freeze enjoys a heavy reliance on gadget plays. During Oher's senior season, Freeze was convinced to utilize a running game behind Oher.

On his own, Freeze led Arkansas State to a 10-2 regular season mark in 2011 and was hired in early December to replace Nutt.

Vandy

Watson Brown had been 4-29 in SEC games when he was let go following the 1990 season at his alma mater to become the OC at Mississippi State.

Gerry Dinardo was the offensive coordinator at Colorado in 1990, the year Bill McCartney's team won the national championship. After going 1-10 in each of Watson Brown's last two seasons, Vandy went 5-6 in three of four seasons with Dinardo. Dinardo was SEC Coach of the Year for 1991. Dinardo's SEC record was 9-22 and he was hired by LSU.

Rod Dowhower had been a head coach at Stanford and for the Indianapolis Colts. He had been idle for one season after serving as an NFL assistant for seven seasons when he took the Vandy job starting with the 1995 season. Dowhower was 1-15 in SEC games in his two seasons at Vandy.

Woody Widenhofer had been the head coach at Missouri in the 80's. He was DC at Vandy when he was promoted to replace Dowhower. His 1997 team led the SEC in total defense but went 0-8 in conference games. In his five seasons at Vandy, Woody's teams had an SEC record of 4-36. In 2010, Widenhofer was working at a highway toll booth in the Florida panhandle.

Bobby Johnson had been the head coach at Furman for eight seasons when he took the Vandy job to begin the 2002 season. In 2005 Vandy went 3-5 with Jay Cutler at QB including a highway robbery at Ben Hill Griffin. In 2008, Johnson's team went 7-6 and Vandy got their first bowl win since 1955. Johnson was Co-SEC Coach of the Year. After a 2-10 and 0-8 SEC mark in 2009, Johnson resigned on July 14, 2010. Bobby Johnson's SEC record in eight seasons was 12-52 including a 4-4 mark in 2008.

Robbie Caldwell, the offensive line coach, claimed he was lining the practice field when he was informed of a meeting naming him head coach. He killed at SEC Media Days and the interim tag was removed from his title. With a 28-14 over Houston Nutt's Ole Miss Rebels in Oxford, Caldwell became Vandy's first coach to win his road debut since 1975. Vandy went 1-7 in the SEC and Caldwell announced his resignation just before Vandy's last game against Wake Forest. This touched off a three-week coaching search.

James Franklin, the offensive coordinator at Maryland, became the first black head coach of a major sport at Vanderbilt. Franklin's 2011 team earned a bowl bid, Vandy's fourth ever, and finished 6-7 with a Liberty Bowl loss. His team was 2-6 in the SEC.

A&M

Mike Sherman was hired in November 2007 to replace Dennis Franchione. Sherman's team won the last six regular season games of the '10 season. In 2011 they made the Top 10 but lost three games in which they held double digit half time leads. End of season top five teams Oklahoma State and Arkansas were the first two teams to accomplish the come-from-behind win. Sherman was fired on Dec. 1.

DC Tim DeRuyter was the interim coach for A&M's Meineke Car Care bowl game victory. DeRuyter is now the head coach at Fresno State.

Kevin Sumlin will be A&M's head coach as they enter the SEC. Sumlin coached Houston for four years. In 2011, his only loss was to So. Miss. in the C-USA championship game.

Kentucky

Jerry Claiborne had a harrowing plane ride while recruiting and resigned from coaching after the 1989 season and a 6-5 mark.

Bill Curry left Bama to become Kentucky's coach and was there from 1990 to 1996. 1993 was his most accomplished team going 6-6 and losing the Peach Bowl on a late fumble by a linebacker after an interception. In 1996, Curry put true freshman Tim Couch in his first starting role running the option against Florida. That was the final straw. Curry's SEC record was 14-40 in seven seasons. His teams were 12-12 in non-conference games. After some TV analyst work, Curry is now coaching Georgia State.

Hal Mumme brought his Air Raid attack from Valdosta State to start the 1997 season. He brought characters on his staff like Tony Franklin and Mike Leach. AD CM Newton wanted "the Pitino of football" to raise fan excitement. His unorthodox style led to kicking off out of bounds ("I've got future CPAs trying to tackle future NFL players"), frequent on-side kicks, and laying down to give up seven for a shot at getting eight. Mumme's team got UK's first win over Bama since the 20's. In '98 with help from a UK alum being Outback's CEO, UK got their first and to-date last New Year's Day Bowl since the 50's. Couch and Co. were held down by Jerry Sandusky's defense. Penn State later vacated that bowl win. Mumme's 2000 team went 0-8 in the SEC ending his UK career along with a scandal involving his academic coordinator. Mumme's SEC record over four seasons was 10-22.  Two teams went 4-4 which was only good for 4th in the SEC east in '97 and '98.

Guy Morriss, UK's Offensive Line Coach and Associate Head Coach was named interim coach for the 2001 season (2-9) and head coach for 2002 (7-5, ineligible for post season due to sanctions from the Claude Bassett incident). Morriss was doused with Gatorade in a premature player celebration before Nick Saban's LSU team completed a 75-yard TD pass on the last play for a win. Morriss left UK for Baylor. His SEC record was 4-12.

Rich Brooks was named the head of the UK's football coach search committee by his former Oregon Athletic Adminstrator Mitch Barnhart. Brooks recommended himself. The former coach of the Rams had a rough start going 4-20 in SEC games in his first three seasons. He was owned by Bobby Petrino and UofL who got UK to move their season opener to the third game of the season in years that UK was home team in part to get it off of national television. In 2006 after getting blown out LSU, Brooks' team turned it around to finish third in the SEC-E at 4-4. After upsetting then top ten UofL now coached by Steve Kragthorpe and number LSU in multiple overtimes, UK was briefly in the Top Ten. Brooks got UK into a school record four consecutive bowl games. He resigned after the 2009 season to turn the program over to his long time coach-in-waiting, Joker Phillips. Brooks seven season SEC record was 16-39. He could not get a win over Florida nor Tennessee. The Tennessee and Florida streaks were the longest futility streaks in the NCAA for one team against another stretching into the 80's.

Joker Phillips was UK's recruiting coordinator who set up their '06 and '07 teams. Phillips became the coach-in-waiting and UK's recruiting appeared to suffer. Phillips' team extended UK's bowl streak in 2010 but lost in the BBVA Compass Bowl. His 2011 team lost to UofL with good friend and Batesville native Charlie Strong at the helm. It was UK's first loss to UofL since Petrino left. UK won their last game over Tennessee breaking the 26-year futility streak by using WR Matt Burke in his first UK duty ever at QB. Phillips is thought to be on the hot seat in Lexington. His SEC record in two seasons is 4-12.

There is an unsubstantiated rumor that Dooley offered to resign after the Kentucky loss last season if Tennessee would give him a $5 million buyout.

Scarblog: Auburn has changed head coaches four times since 1980, and not once because the man on his way out the door was leaving for another job.
 
Quote
It looked bleak in 1980. Doug Barfield went 5-6 overall, 0-6 in the SEC, and lost 42-0 to Tennessee. Auburn’s Iron Bowl losing streak was at eight and counting.

The Tigers, after watching Vince Dooley get cold feet, after interviewing Bobby Bowden, Dan Reaves and Jackie Sherrill, hired Pat Dye from Wyoming. Three years later, they went 11-1, won the SEC and were named national champions by the New York Times.

Things looked dim again in 1992. Dye was forced to resign in the middle of an NCAA investigation that would cost the program a two-year postseason and TV ban. His last team went 2-5-1 in the SEC and lost his last game 17-0 to an Alabama team en route to a national title.

Auburn hired Terry Bowden from Samford. The next year, the Tigers went 11-0 and finished No. 4 in the nation.

The dark cloud returned in 1998. Bowden quit at midseason before he could be fired. The team went 3-8 overall and 1-7 in the SEC.

Auburn hired Tommy Tuberville from Ole Miss. Two years later, the Tigers went 9-2 in the regular season, capping it off with a 9-0 win in Tuscaloosa and an SEC West title.

The next eclipse arrived in 2008. Tuberville’s farewell produced a 5-7 overall mark and a 2-6 SEC record. The bitter end was a 36-0 defeat at Alabama.

Auburn hired Gene Chizik from Iowa State. Two years later, the Tigers went 14-0 and won the BCS national championship.

Conventional wisdom says that anyone can win 10 games at Alabama because every head coach there since Bear Bryant has, at least once, but what about Auburn? Each of the last four head coaches there has won at least 11 games in a season at least once. Each of the last three head coaches there has had an undefeated season, and two of those perfect records came with a national championship coach on the Alabama sideline.

So Auburn has managed to win a few games when Alabama wasn’t coached by Bill Curry or Mike Shula.

History tells us that, not unlike Alabama, Auburn has a deep-seated need to be good in football and the well-heeled means to make it happen. At least in the short term. No matter who the school hires to get it done.

Tennessee

Johnny Majors was the '56 Heisman runner-up running the WildVol. Many Tennessee fans considered him the nation's best player on a winning team. He coached a national championship team at Pitt and returned to his alma mater, a hero. Majors' last season as the Vol HC was the expansion year of '92. Poised to move to #1 in the polls, Tennessee saw a last second FG by visiting Arkansas send the capacity crowd into a tizzy.  After Majors misses early season games recovering from heart surgery, it is believed that long-time OL coach Phil Fulmer worked the administration and eased Majors out of the HC job. Majors' official SEC record during the expansion era was 3-3 (57-40-3 overall).

Vols fans watched Peyton Manning lose early season match ups to Florida in each of his four years in that era prior to the four-team playoff. In 1998, current USC assistant T Martin led Fulmer's team to his BCS national championship and national coach of the year honors.

Fulmer's SEC record, including a forfeit courtesy of Bama, was 98-34 which prorates to about 6-2. Fulmer had seven seasons with 7-1 or 8-0 conference records. He was 81-19 in SEC play prior to the '05 season. He was let go after needing a win over Kentucky to finish 5th in the SEC East in 2008.

Lane Kiffin was fired four games into the 2008 season by Al Davis and the Raiders. In the NFL that's okay, just don't voluntarily leave before the season ends. Mike Hamilton hired Kiffin to replace Fulmer and he brought Monte Kiffin and Ed Orgeron as top assistants.

Kiffin attempted to bring USC tradition to Knoxville while intentionally pushing Volunteer tradition into the background. He also publicly took on Urban Meyer and constantly put Mike Slive on edge. In an early season Florida game, Kiffin played a deliberate style that allowed Tennessee to cover the spread and claim a morale victory [phrase intentionally chosen as the words "moral" and "victory" together in this context would be an oxymoron].

Kiffin left for USC after posting an SEC conference record of 4-4. Students set small fires near the athletic administration building, burning mattresses and Kiffin paraphernalia.

Despite rumors ranging from Jon Gruden to Texas coach-in-waiting Will Muschamp, the Vols hired the son of former UGa coach Vince Dooley. Derek Dooley was the AD and head football coach at LaTech where he had gone 12-12 in WAC games.

At Tennessee, Dooley has an SEC conference record of 4-12 in two seasons including the Vols first back-to-back losing records since the '10-11 teams prior to WWI. In his first season, Dooley twice was heading to mid-field in celebration only to have an official's decision upon review ultimately reverse the game outcome. Dooley claimed to go "8-5 in post-game handshakes." His '11 team snapped a 26-game winning streak over Kentucky [the longest single school domination over another in the FBS]. Kentucky was forced to use a senior WR at the QB position. Tennessee failed to go to a bowl game due to the loss. Some believe the younger players didn't want to go bowling.

After starting 0-7 in the SEC and losing big to Vandy, Derek Dooley was fired. He would not coach the last game against Kentucky due to "consideration for the players". He finished 4-19 in SEC games. OC Jim Chaney was named interim for the game formerly known as The Battle of the Beer Barrel.

Bama
 ...
Franchione was reportedly offered $15 million for 10 years but left Bama for A&M to replace RC Slocum. He did bid farewell to the players via videoconference so Dani did not feel compelled to make the trip to College Station and dress him down.

Franchione was 10-6 in SEC games.


Mike Price's Washington State team had whupped Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl 34-14 and he was hired to succeed Franchione. In Pensacola, Price wound up with private dancer Destiny Stahl and never coached a game at Bama.

There's rarely a more biting media account than from one who covers the school last spurned. "Mike Price went into hard-boozing, hard-partying Tuscaloosa after more than a decade in rural, brew-sipping Pullman and made the mistake of believing he was invited to the party as a participant rather than a myopic chaperone.

"His first mistake was to try to make football practice fun and to publicly flaunt that fact in a place where having fun at that level of college football is heresy.

"His second mistake was to get drunk and make a fool of himself before earning his stripes."

"It's bad, especially because he's married," said daughter Brooke. "Come on, use some common sense!"
She's 11.



The Miami Dolphins QB coach was hired in May 2003 and at the time was the second youngest coach in D1...

Auburn

Pat Dye had coached Wyoming for one season when he interviewed for the Auburn job as AD and head football coach following the 1980 season. Dye apparently correctly answered, "sixty minutes" when asked how long it would take him to beat Bama. He replaced Doug Barfield who had followed Shug Jordan. He replaced the coach who replaced he legend.  Dye was 48-27-3 in SEC games with his last season being the first expansion season of '92. He was 2-5-1 and fifth in the SEC-W.

Pat Dye lost his AD position following the '91 season. NCAA sanctions were levied for payments to Eric Ramsey. Corky and Larry Blakeney were implicated via tape recordings. Auburn currently plays home games on Pat Dye Field in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Beginning with the '93 season, Terry Bowden was hired from Samford, and inherited scholarship reductions, a one-year television ban, and a two-year postseason ban. Bowden became the first coach to have an undefeated first season in D1. He was 14-1-1 in the SEC after two seasons with no post-season experience including a 20-game winning streak. He was 16-13 in conference over the next four seasons with his last Auburn team, the '98 team, finishing 6th in the SEC-W.

Bowden was replaced mid-season in '98 by DC Bill Oliver. Oliver finished 0-3 in the SEC and retired from football coaching when he did not get the Auburn job for the '99 season.

Camden native Tommy Tuberville had gone 12-20 at Ole Miss when they "carried him out of Oxford in a pine box" and hired him at Auburn.

Tuberville was 51-29 in SEC games over his tenure from '99 thru '08. He was National Coach of the Year in '04, the year his team was SEC champs. His 13-0 team was not included in the era prior to the four-team play-off.

Following a 2-6 SEC record in '08, Jay Jacobs claimed that Tuberville resigned. He received a $5.1 million separation package.

Gene Chizik was a prominent name on hot seat lists at Iowa State following a 0-8 Big 12 North run in '08. Jacobs met some criticism when hiring the former Auburn DC.

Chizik was 15-9 in SEC games after three seasons. He was national coach of the year in '10 when his team went 14-0 winning the BCS-NC and SEC-CG.

Chizik was fired after an 0-8 SEC finish in '12, the first school to ever finish seventh in the SEC-West (due to addition of A&M). He became the first coach to be fired after winning the National Championship within two years in at least the last fifty (FIFTY!) years. Chizik's final SEC regular season record was 15-17*.

*7-17 without Cam.

http://johnclay.bloginky.com/2012/11/27/the-biggest-sec-coaching-turnover-since-2004

John Clay: 2004 was the last time the SEC had so many coaching changes in the season.

Florida fired Ron Zook, Ole Miss fired David Cutcliffe, South Carolina’s Lou Holtz retired and LSU’s Nick Saban left for the NFL. In 2005, Urban Meyer was the new head coach at Florida, Ed Orgeron was at Ole Miss, Steve Spurrier at South Carolina and Les Miles at LSU. Just two of those four coaches are still at those schools.

[A table in the linked article lists the SEC Coaching exits since 1992.

The Vandy coach who replaced Bobby Johnson for one season is omitted.]

http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2012/11/sec_teams_with_least_coaching.html

SEC teams with least coaching turnover since 1981? It's Auburn, Tennessee, UGa

Auburn has had four head coaches since Dye was hired in 1981. So has Georgia and Tennessee in the last 31 years.

Auburn and Tennessee will make it five head coaches soon. Auburn is looking to replace Gene Chizik. Tennessee is replacing Derek Dooley.

We chose 1981 for the list below, which is certainly an arbitrary, odd and perhaps unfair date for all the other teams, but it's the one we're using because that's when Dye arrived. We didn't count any interim coaches who finished a season, and there were quite a few in the league, but did count John L. Smith at Arkansas because he coached the entire 2012 season.

Here's a look at the head coaches since 1981 among current SEC members:

Kentucky

Jerry Claiborne had a harrowing plane ride while recruiting and resigned from coaching after the 1989 season and a 6-5 mark.

Bill Curry left Bama to become Kentucky's coach and was there from 1990 to 1996. 1993 was his most accomplished team going 6-6 and losing the Peach Bowl on a late fumble by a linebacker after an interception. In 1996, Curry put true freshman Tim Couch in his first starting role running the option against Florida. That was the final straw. Curry's SEC record was 14-40 in seven seasons. His teams were 12-12 in non-conference games. After some TV analyst work, Curry is now coaching Georgia State.

Hal Mumme brought his Air Raid attack from Valdosta State to start the 1997 season. He brought characters on his staff like Tony Franklin and Mike Leach. AD CM Newton wanted "the Pitino of football" to raise fan excitement. His unorthodox style led to kicking off out of bounds ("I've got future CPAs trying to tackle future NFL players"), frequent on-side kicks, and laying down to give up seven for a shot at getting eight. Mumme's team got UK's first win over Bama since the 20's. In '98 with help from a UK alum being Outback's CEO, UK got their first and to-date last New Year's Day Bowl since the 50's. Couch and Co. were held down by Jerry Sandusky's defense. Penn State later vacated that bowl win. Mumme's 2000 team went 0-8 in the SEC ending his UK career along with a scandal involving his academic coordinator. Mumme's SEC record over four seasons was 10-22.  Two teams went 4-4 which was only good for 4th in the SEC east in '97 and '98.

Guy Morriss, UK's Offensive Line Coach and Associate Head Coach was named interim coach for the 2001 season (2-9) and head coach for 2002 (7-5, ineligible for post season due to sanctions from the Claude Bassett incident). Morriss was doused with Gatorade in a premature player celebration before Nick Saban's LSU team completed a 75-yard TD pass on the last play for a win. Morriss left UK for Baylor. His SEC record was 4-12.

Rich Brooks was named the head of the UK's football coach search committee by his former Oregon Athletic Adminstrator Mitch Barnhart. Brooks recommended himself. The former coach of the Rams had a rough start going 4-20 in SEC games in his first three seasons. He was owned by Bobby Petrino and UofL who got UK to move their season opener to the third game of the season in years that UK was home team in part to get it off of national television. In 2006 after getting blown out LSU, Brooks' team turned it around to finish third in the SEC-E at 4-4. After upsetting then top ten UofL now coached by Steve Kragthorpe and number LSU in multiple overtimes, UK was briefly in the Top Ten. Brooks got UK into a school record four consecutive bowl games. He resigned after the 2009 season to turn the program over to his long time coach-in-waiting, Joker Phillips. Brooks seven season SEC record was 16-39. He could not get a win over Florida nor Tennessee. The Tennessee and Florida streaks were the longest futility streaks in the NCAA for one team against another stretching into the 80's.

Joker Phillips was UK's recruiting coordinator who set up their '06 and '07 teams. Phillips became the coach-in-waiting and UK's recruiting appeared to suffer. Phillips' team extended UK's bowl streak in 2010 but lost in the BBVA Compass Bowl. His 2011 team lost to UofL with good friend and Batesville native Charlie Strong at the helm. It was UK's first loss to UofL since Petrino left. UK won their last game over Tennessee breaking the 26-year futility streak by using WR Matt Burke in his first UK duty ever at QB. Phillips is thought to be on the hot seat in Lexington.  Joker Phillips was fired ten games into the 2012 season after a 1-9 start and he finished the season 0-8 in the SEC. His SEC record was 4-20. Phillips was hired by Will Muschamp to be Recruiting Coordinator and WR Coach at Florida.

Kentucky hired Florida State Defensive Coordinator Mark Stoops, 45, to replace Phillips. Former UK QB and Fox Sports Network SEC analyst Tim Couch is reported to have been key in helping bring Stoops to UK. This is Stoops' first head coaching position.

It has happened but it has been relatively rare for an SEC school to hire a coach who had led a team to a BCS level bowl game unless they had taken a detour through the NFL.

I never really felt like Butch Jones connected with the fan base. Good coach, not irreplaceable. UC will be fine. Go to games.

Auburn

Pat Dye had coached Wyoming for one season when he interviewed for the Auburn job as AD and head football coach following the 1980 season. Dye apparently correctly answered, "sixty minutes" when asked how long it would take him to beat Bama. He replaced Doug Barfield who had followed Shug Jordan. He replaced the coach who replaced he legend.  Dye was 48-27-3 in SEC games with his last season being the first expansion season of '92. He was 2-5-1 and fifth in the SEC-W.

Pat Dye lost his AD position following the '91 season. NCAA sanctions were levied for payments to Eric Ramsey. Corky and Larry Blakeney were implicated via tape recordings. Auburn currently plays home games on Pat Dye Field in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Beginning with the '93 season, Terry Bowden was hired from Samford, and inherited scholarship reductions, a one-year television ban, and a two-year postseason ban. Bowden became the first coach to have an undefeated first season in D1. He was 14-1-1 in the SEC after two seasons with no post-season experience including a 20-game winning streak. He was 16-13 in conference over the next four seasons with his last Auburn team, the '98 team, finishing 6th in the SEC-W.

Bowden was replaced mid-season in '98 by DC Bill Oliver. Oliver finished 0-3 in the SEC and retired from football coaching when he did not get the Auburn job for the '99 season.

Camden native Tommy Tuberville had gone 12-20 at Ole Miss when they "carried him out of Oxford in a pine box" and hired him at Auburn.

Tuberville was 51-29 in SEC games over his tenure from '99 thru '08. From '99 to 2002, a young Whit Babcock was a part of the Auburn athletic adminstration. Babcock is the University of Cincinnati who hired Tuberville from Texas Tech on December 8, 2012 as their new head coach to replace Butch Jones who was hired the day before to coach Tennessee.

Tuberville was National Coach of the Year in '04, the year his team was SEC champs. His 13-0 team was not included in the era prior to the four-team play-off.

Following a 2-6 SEC record in '08, Jay Jacobs claimed that Tuberville resigned. He received a $5.1 million separation package.

Gene Chizik was a prominent name on hot seat lists at Iowa State following a 0-8 Big 12 North run in '08. Jacobs met some criticism when hiring the former Auburn DC.

Chizik was 15-9 in SEC games after three seasons. He was national coach of the year in '10 when his team went 14-0 winning the BCS-NC and SEC-CG.

Chizik was fired after an 0-8 SEC finish in '12, the first school to ever finish seventh in the SEC-West (due to addition of A&M). He became the first coach to be fired after winning the National Championship within two years in at least the last fifty (FIFTY!) years. Chizik's final SEC regular season record was 15-17, 7-17 without Cam Newton.

Auburn hired Gus Malzahn who just finished his first season as a head coach at Arkansas State winning the Sun Belt title. Malzahn was OC at Auburn from 2009-11 before taking a cut in pay to take the Arkansas State job. Malzahn left the Arkansas high school coaching ranks to join five of his Springdale state champion players as OC at Arkansas. He left after one season with Houston Nutt when David Lee was announced to be Co-OC. Malzahn was OC at Tulsa before taking the Auburn Offensive Coordinator position for Gene Chizik.

Wonder if Coach Malzahn would give El-Dorkmeister a Recommendation to some AAA High School for a Head Coaching Job.. 

Sweet Justice... whether you like Coach Malzahn or not.. I find it entertaining that he is a HC of an SEC school, and Nutt, the twice fired little school girl is unemployed.

Before the sun rose in New Orleans after Alabama’s 34-13 dismantling of the Miami Hurricanes in the Jan. 1, 1993, Sugar Bowl, the seeds of UA’s downfall to some of the lowest points in the program’s history began to take root.

And it started with, of all things, a signature on a cocktail napkin.

Alabama defensive back Antonio Langham, partying after the game in the French Quarter, signed what turned out to be an agreement with a fledgling sports agent, a friend of a relative who wanted Langham to forgo his senior season at UA to enter the National Football League draft.

Langham decided, instead, to stay for another year before becoming a first-round pick, but that signature would haunt Alabama for more than a decade. The NCAA ultimately determined that Langham was ineligible for the 1993 season and stripped Alabama of eight wins and a tie in that 30-0-1 streak for his participation.

UA was sanctioned with probation. Years later, when the NCAA ruled an Alabama booster guilty of paying for the services of Memphis recruit Albert Means while the school was still on probation, UA was hit with severe scholarship cuts and a two-year bowl ban that crippled the program – the penalties enhanced because transgressions occurred while Alabama was still on probation that stemmed from the Langham agent violations.

Under those sanctions, an era of mediocrity ensued: a coaching carousel from Mike DuBose to Dennis Franchione to Mike Price (who was dismissed before ever coaching a game) to Mike Shula, with a smattering of losing seasons and no sustained success.

Behind the scenes, however, there was more at work. While Alabama was playing its way to the 1992 national championship, the campus was overrun with investigators.

“Every time I looked up there was someone down here from the NCAA,” said Tom Jones, retired dean of the UA law school and Alabama’s faculty athletics representative at the time. “Every rumor on the street, they’d have someone down here.”

Those rumors centered on Gene Jelks, a former UA player who had alleged that he received money from Alabama boosters and former assistant coach Jerry Pullen.

Pullen filed suit against Jelks in Georgia, and documents made public through discovery showed that Jelks had been paid thousands of dollars through his attorney. Although the lawsuit was dismissed, Jelks declared that the money had come from Auburn supporters who wanted to use him to land Alabama on NCAA probation...

Tennessee

Johnny Majors was the '56 Heisman runner-up running the WildVol. Many Tennessee fans considered him the nation's best player on a winning team. He coached a national championship team at Pitt and returned to his alma mater, a hero. Majors' last season as the Vol HC was the expansion year of '92. Poised to move to #1 in the polls, Tennessee saw a last second FG by visiting Arkansas send the capacity crowd into a tizzy.  After Majors misses early season games recovering from heart surgery, it is believed that long-time OL coach Phil Fulmer worked the administration and eased Majors out of the HC job. Majors' official SEC record during the expansion era was 3-3 (57-40-3 overall).

Vols fans watched Peyton Manning lose early season match ups to Florida in each of his four years in that era prior to the four-team playoff. In 1998, current USC assistant T Martin led Fulmer's team to his BCS national championship and national coach of the year honors.

Fulmer's SEC record, including a forfeit courtesy of Bama, was 98-34 which prorates to about 6-2. Fulmer had seven seasons with 7-1 or 8-0 conference records. He was 81-19 in SEC play prior to the '05 season. He was let go after needing a win over Kentucky to finish 5th in the SEC East in 2008.

Lane Kiffin was fired four games into the 2008 season by Al Davis and the Raiders. In the NFL that's okay, just don't voluntarily leave before the season ends. Mike Hamilton hired Kiffin to replace Fulmer and he brought Monte Kiffin and Ed Orgeron as top assistants.

Kiffin attempted to bring USC tradition to Knoxville while intentionally pushing Volunteer tradition into the background. He also publicly took on Urban Meyer and constantly put Mike Slive on edge. In an early season Florida game, Kiffin played a deliberate style that allowed Tennessee to cover the spread and claim a morale victory [phrase intentionally chosen as the words "moral" and "victory" together in this context would be an oxymoron].

Kiffin left for USC after posting an SEC conference record of 4-4. Students set small fires near the athletic administration building, burning mattresses and Kiffin paraphernalia.

Despite rumors ranging from Jon Gruden to Texas coach-in-waiting Will Muschamp, the Vols hired the son of former UGa coach Vince Dooley. Derek Dooley was the AD and head football coach at LaTech where he had gone 12-12 in WAC games.

At Tennessee, Dooley has an SEC conference record of 4-12 in two seasons including the Vols first back-to-back losing records since the '10-11 teams prior to WWI. In his first season, Dooley twice was heading to mid-field in celebration only to have an official's decision upon review ultimately reverse the game outcome. Dooley claimed to go "8-5 in post-game handshakes." His '11 team snapped a 26-game winning streak over Kentucky [the longest single school domination over another in the FBS]. Kentucky was forced to use a senior WR at the QB position. Tennessee failed to go to a bowl game due to the loss. Some believe the younger players didn't want to go bowling.

After starting 0-7 in the SEC and losing big to Vandy, Derek Dooley was fired. He would not coach the last game against Kentucky due to "consideration for the players". He finished 4-19 in SEC games. OC Jim Chaney was named interim for the game formerly known as The Battle of the Beer Barrel and led the Vols to their only SEC victory over Kentucky.  Chaney took the OC position at Arkansas.

Tennessee hired Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones after a coaching search process that kept Vol fans on edge.

Spurrier looked around the room recently at a meeting of SEC head football coaches and couldn't help but notice that he was in the minority.

"I got to thinking, 'Where are all the guys who played football in this league over the last 30-some years?'" Spurrier recounted. "You don't see many former players from the league coming back [to the SEC] to be head coaches anymore."

Over the past decade, there have been a few such as former Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom (Alabama), former Kentucky coach Joker Phillips (Kentucky) and former Auburn coach Gene Chizik (Florida). And before Nick Saban took over at Alabama, former Alabama quarterback Mike Shula headed up the Crimson Tide's program.

Currently, though, Spurrier and Florida's Will Muschamp are the only two. Matter of fact, more of the current SEC head coaches played their football in the Big Ten -- Arkansas' Bret Bielema and Kentucky's Mark Stoops at Iowa, LSU's Les Miles at Michigan and Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin at Purdue.

I guess if you can't beat them, then join them … right?

It's the $3.1 million dollar question: How did an ole college linebacker at Purdue later earn a reputation as an offensive mastermind? A&M coach Kevin Sumlin is happy to answer.

As a graduate assistant at Washington State starting in 1989, but Cougars coach Mike Price shifted Sumlin to the offensive side of the ball.


Quote
Sumlin said Price told him:

“First thing I want you to do is move to offense, and we're a little bit different than a lot of people on that side of the ball. We'll have one back and no backs and motion and all kinds of stuff that a lot of people don't really do, and a lot of them don't understand. But it gives us a chance to win. If you learn what we're doing and you want to coach, you'll have a job forever.”

In 2002, A&M coach R.C. Slocum tried boosting his sagging offense by promoting Sumlin from receivers coach to offensive coordinator four games in, and the results were immediate...

No word on whether Price showed him a good time in the greater Pullman area.

The Intern: Do coaches who enter the SEC with previous head coaching experience do better than their couterparts with no experience?

Quote
THOSE WITH NO PREVIOUS HEAD COACHING EXPERIENCE
Mark Richt (Georgia)
before UGA: None
during UGA: 118-40 (74.7 win%)

Will Muschamp (Florida)
before Florida: None
during Florida: 18-8 (69.2 win%)

James Franklin (Vanderbilt)
before Vandy: None
during Vandy: 15-11 (57.7 win%)

Dan Mullen (Mississippi State)
before MState: None
during MState: 29-22 (56.9 win%)
Combined SEC Record: 180-81 (69.0 win%)

NEW SEC HEAD COACHES THIS YEAR
Bret Bielema (Arkansas)
before Arkansas: 68-24
during Arkansas: TBD

Gus Malzahn (Auburn)
before Auburn: 9-3
during Auburn: TBD

Butch Jones (Tennessee)
before UT: 50-27
during UT: TBD

Mark Stoops (Kentucky)
before UK: None
during UK: TBD

As we know, two of the SEC coaches with previous experience got it with one year at ASU.

He doesn't have enough here for a significant statistical conclusion. While Mullen and Franklin took care of business in games not against the "Big 7" SEC teams in their first seasons, I don't think Bama or South Carolina would be looking to trade just now.

Mark Richt drew a sweet first coaching assignment and also pads the numbers. There's a point where the dean of current SEC coaches would not be generally considered a coach with no previous experience but factually that is true.

Climer: Hot seat never cools for most SEC coaches

things are a little more settled this year than last. Then, it was clear Derek Dooley and Joker Phillips were facing win-or-bust seasons. Their seats were not just hot; they were sizzling. Neither survived.

No SEC coach is under quite that amount of pressure this time around, although things can change quickly. Really, now, did anyone expect Gene Chizik to get his walking papers just two seasons after winning a national title at Auburn?

In the SEC, no coach is untouchable...

Gary Pinkel, Missouri - 4½ flames
Malzahn, Auburn - 4 flames
Dan Mullen, Mississippi State - 3½ flames

Remaining coaches all 3 flames or less.
