CBS’ Dodd: Richt, Dooley, Nutt On Warmest Seats

CBSSports.com’s Dennis Dodd ranked the hot seat status of each FBS coach yesterday.  His grading system was pretty simple:


0-0.5 = “Don’t even think it — can’t be touched”
1-1.5 = “Very safe — change highly unlikely”
2-2.5 = “Safe — solid position”
3-3.5 = “On the bubble — you never know”
4-4.5 = “Warm seat — feeling the pressure”
5 = “On the hot seat — it’s time to win now”


When it came to the SEC’s 12 coaches, there were no 4′s or 5′s.  Mark Richt sits at a 3.5 on Dodd’s scale — meaning he’s somewhere between “you never know” and “feeling the pressure.”  That number is the highest in the league.

Below are Dodd’s scores for the SEC’s coaches:

Coach
School
Dodd’s Hot Seat Rating
Gene Chizik
Auburn
0.0
Dan Mullen
Miss. State
0.0
Nick Saban
Alabama
0.0
Steve Spurrier
S. Carolina
0.0
Will Muschamp
Florida
0.5
Bobby Petrino
Arkansas
1.0
Joker Phillips
Kentucky
1.5
James Franklin
Vanderbilt
2.0
Les Miles
LSU
2.5
Derek Dooley
Tennessee
3.0
Houston Nutt
Ole Miss
3.0
Mark Richt
Georgia
3.5



Petrino isn’t at a 0.0?  Franklin feels more pressure than Phillips?  Dooley — after one season — could be in worse shape than Miles?  Those are some interesting choices to say the least.

We’ll be posting our annual Hot Seat Rankings later this summer.

0.0 is misleading - all of these guys could get sacked by a scandal. having said that I think the old ball coach is not a 0.0 - he hasn't won anything at USC.

"Petrino isn’t at a 0.0?" Wonder if Dennis is planning on covering the $18 million buyout if Petrino is fired.
