As the rest of college football disintegrates around us, we'll take a moment to look at the more intimate dramas that are likely to beset our humble little conference over the next six months or so.The SEC coaching carousel has been pretty quiet since 2008. That year three coaches - Tommy Tuberville, Sylvester Croom and Phil Fulmer - started the season with brand new contracts and ended it with a pink slip.
Last year seemed like it was going to be relatively tranquil with only Rich Brooks' retirement at Kentucky shaking up the HC ranks. Well, that was before the night the internets exploded. Needless to say, the boy blunder headed back west and Tennessee was left scrambling for a new HC.
So now it's 2010 and all is quiet among the SEC coaching ranks once again... too quiet if you ask me. As certain as the sun will rise 'ere come the morn, somebody's AD is going to have an insane December. But, like 2008, it doesn't seem like anyone in particular stands out as likely to take the fall.
The natives are restless in Baton Rouge but Les Miles brought them the crystal football just three seasons back. Mark Richt has been criticized for not getting the bulldogs over the hump but he's still one of the best coaches in Georgia's history. Many feel the game has passed Steve Spurrier by but he's still kept the gamecocks competitive against a tough league. Outside of that it's guys with less than two years on the job or those who have been winning.
So we ask you, our readers, which SEC head coach do you think is most likely to be gone by the end of the season?
