Tom Dienhart of Rivals.com produced a ranking of the top college football coaches. The SEC placed two coaches in the top 3 with Florida coach Urban Meyer ranked number one and Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban ranked number three.
Here is what Dienhart says about Nick Saban: “First, he made LSU a national power. Now, Saban has Alabama poised to be the nation’s top program.”
Other notables on the list, Mark Richt at number 10, and Steve Spurrier at number 21. For those rivals who read the site, Auburn’s Gene Chizik and Tennessee’s Lane Kiffin didn’t make the list.
For those schools, Tennessee likely has improved its situation because Phil Fulmer had lost his game and looked fatigued. Auburn likely worsened its situation as Chizik’s skills are nowhere near as good as Tuberville’s; however, Chizik does bring more intensity than Tuberville had over the last few seasons.
