The faculty soccer teaching carousel by no means actually stops. After 13 power-five applications plus Notre Dame entered this season with a brand new head coach, two extra have already made a change, with Nebraska’s Scott Frost and Arizona State’s Herm Edwards ousted. Lower than a month into the season, three extra coaches discover themselves squarely on the new seat.
Bryan Harsin, who fought to maintain his job after allegations of participant mistreatment within the offseason, is now in an on-field struggle to remain on the Auburn sidelines. The Tigers are 2-1, however that features a lower than spectacular win over San Jose State and a 41-12 house loss to Penn State.
If Auburn does not rebound towards Missouri and LSU within the coming weeks, the season may flip disastrous with 5 ranked opponents on the schedule within the remaining seven weeks. A house loss to Missouri this Saturday would create a world of issues for Harsin.
Karl Dorrell was the product of an unlucky state of affairs for Colorado when Mel Tucker bolted after just one season. Colorado went 4-2 in Dorrell’s first season, however the wheels have fallen off since. After a 4-8 marketing campaign final yr, the Buffaloes have began this yr with three consecutive losses by not less than 25 factors.
After shedding 49-7 to Minnesota final Saturday, Colorado is a three-touchdown house underdog towards UCLA this weekend. UCLA barely escaped South Alabama final week. Colorado appears prefer it’s headed for a pair wins at most, and the clock is ticking on Dorrell.
Georgia Tech’s Geoff Collins is actually a lame duck coach at this level. The Yellow Jackets are 10-27 since he took over in 2019, and the state of affairs is barely worsening. Courting again to final season, Georgia Tech has 55-0, 45-0, and 42-0 losses in its final 5 video games.
It is mildly stunning Collins wasn’t let go after final week’s 42-0 loss to Ole Miss, however his buyout of greater than $10 million complicates the difficulty for Georgia Tech. Credit score goes to Collins for signing a seven-year contract when he was employed in late 2018 – it is likely to be all that is preserving his job proper now.
Louisville’s Scott Satterfield purchased himself a while with a Week 2 win over UCF, however a house loss to Florida State final week stored him on the new seat. Employed the identical week as Collins in 2018, Satterfield is now 19-21 at Louisville and 11-16 since 2020.
Whereas he can in all probability survive the season, a stretch of 5 ranked opponents in six weeks to shut out the yr would possibly push the varsity to decide.
