Hot Seat Coach Status Tracker: Who's Staying, Who's Getting Fired?


With so much speculation, with coaches coming off of bad years are staying, and who’s about to get fired? 

Ball State Cardinals

Current Head Coach: Mike Neu
: Even though Neu is coming off a third losing run in three years, and is 10-26 with no more than four wins in a season, he’s coming back for a fourth try.

BYU Cougars

Current Head Coach: Kalani Sitake
: Anecdotal, but even though the fan base and close friends to the CFN program might be grumbling about a 6-6 record and a loss to Utah – coming off a 4-9 season – there’s no out-loud discussion from the school about making a move.

Colorado State Rams

Current Head Coach: Mike Bobo
: After three straight 7-6 seasons – seen as generally disappointing, especially last year – the 3-9 clunker was a total disaster. However …

East Carolina Pirates

Current Head Coach: Scottie Montgomery
: There’s nothing official yet, but it’s brewing. After three straight three-win seasons and closing out this year with a blowout against NC State, it’s coming.

Illinois Fighting Illilni

Current Head Coach: Lovie Smith
: 9-27 not only didn’t get him fired, it got him a contract extension …

Kansas State Wildcats

Current Head Coach: Bill Snyder
: If the brutal collapse against Iowa State to miss out on bowl eligibility wasn’t the last game of his legendary career, it sure seemed like it. Best guess? He’s letting the season die down a little bit, he’ll give it a few days, and then announce his retirement.

New Mexico Lobos

Current Head Coach: Bob Davie
: Considering the $1.5 million buyout appears to be an issue, he’s a whole lot more secure than a head coach with two straight 3-9 seasons should be. His status is still up in the air.

Old Dominion Monarchs

Current Head Coach: Bobby Wilder
: Despite a disastrous 4-8 season and three losing seasons in four years, he’s still safe … for now. However, he did fire a slew of assistants.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Current Head Coach: Chris Ash
: He’s staying. He’s not getting a contract extension like Lovie Smith did at Illinois, but …

Tulsa Golden Hurricane

Current Head Coach: Philip Montgomery
: Even after going 5-19 over the last two seasons, there’s no talk whatsoever of changing up coaches. The win over SMU to close things out – and ruin the Mustang season – might have something to do with it.

UConn Huskies

Current Head Coach: Randy Edsall
: Even with the worst defensive season in college football history and a 1-11 campaign after a 3-9 start, it’s all full steam ahead for 2019.

UNLV Rebels

Current Head Coach: Tony Sanchez
: He has gone 16-32 with four straight losing seasons, but when you win the big rivalry game – beating Nevada to end the season – people like you. He’s likely going to get a fifth year to make this work. There are a whole lot of great parts – mostly on offense – but if the defense doesn’t get fixed, there won’t be a sixth season.

USC Trojans

Current Head Coach: Clay Helton
: Even after a disastrous year, he’s sticking …

UTSA Roadrunners

Current Head Coach: Frank Wilson
: It was supposed to be when UTSA started to kick it all in, but in Year Three – after going 12-12 in his first two seasons – a 3-9 run with the nation’s worst offense wasn’t okay. But …
