2023 college football coach rankings: Mel Tucker, Sam Pittman plummet among Power Five coaches ranked 69-26
Troy Taylor: I can’t speak for every voter, but I know I have a simple method for the bottom of my ballot. You’re going at the bottom if it’s your season as a head coach. It works because it makes sense and keeps me from having to actually rank somebody as the worst coach. Taylor has head coaching experience, so he wasn’t 69th on my ballot, but I guess my colleagues aren’t as impressed by three straight conference titles at Sacramento State. 2022 rank: n/a
Zach Arnett: Arnett steps into an awful situation. It’d be one thing to replace a coaching legend if that coach had retired, but to try to fill Mike Leach’s shoes after his unexpected death is an enormous task. He did get a win in Mississippi State’s bowl game, though. 2022 rank: n/a
Brent Pry: It’s never a great sign when you have a year under your belt, and you’re ranked behind other newcomers. Pry drops a couple of spots in our rankings after a 3-8 debut at Virginia Tech. 2022 rank: 65 (-2)
