    After the Chicago Bears threw the ball only 11 times in a 27-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, readers want to know if the coaches doubt quarterback Justin Fields’ ability in the passing game — as well as questions about Kyler Gordon’s rookie struggles and whether Week 3 against the Houston Texans is a “must-win.” Brad Biggs answers those questions and more in his weekly mailbag. Aaron Rodgers seemed to target receivers matched up against rookie Kyler Gordon. He was also ineffective in run support. What was his performance grading in the game? How long will this coaching staff be patient with a rookie CB that needs development? — Ryan Y., Libertyville There were a handful of questions about Gordon, the second-round pick from Washington, this week and that wasn’t surprising because he had a rough go Sunday night at Lambeau Field. Gordon also made some nice plays in the game and no one asked about some of the better snaps he had, such as the pass breakup in the corner of the end zone when...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Two Black coaches joined former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores in his lawsuit claiming racist hiring practices by the NFL toward coaches and general managers. The updated lawsuit in Manhattan federal court added coaches Steve Wilks and Ray Horton. READ MORE: Trio Of Thieves Stole Cars From Opa-locka Dealership, Shot Security GuardWilks alleges he was discriminated against by the Arizona Cardinals in 2018 and Horton claims he was subjected to discriminatory treatment when he interviewed for the Tennessee Titans head coach position in January 2016. The rewritten lawsuit from Flores also criticized the NFL for its response to the lawsuit he brought against it and its teams several weeks ago. In a release from the lawsuit’s attorneys, Wilks said he hoped the lawsuit would help bring racial equality to the league. “When Coach Flores filed this action, I knew I owed it to myself, and to all Black NFL coaches and aspiring coaches, to stand with him,” he said. “This lawsuit has shed further important light on a problem that we all know exists, but that...
    Two more NFL coaches are expected to join Brian Flores's federal discrimination lawsuit against the league, Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos and New York Giants, a source has confirmed to DailyMail.com.  The amended complaint, which has yet to be filed, was first reported by the New York Daily News. The new plaintiffs are expected to implicate two other teams at the ownership level, a source familiar with the case confirmed to DailyMail.com. Flores was fired by the Dolphins despite helping turn around a floundering franchise in his three seasons as coach, going 19-14 the last two years.  He cites a string of text messages with New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick three days before his scheduled Giants interview for the head coaching position. Those texts led Flores to believe Brian Daboll already had been chosen as the new coach. At Monday's owners meetings in Palm Beach, Florida, Belichick refused comment on the lawsuit and any role he might have had in the lawsuit.  Giants owner John Mara said Sunday he is not interested in any settlement with Flores and 'I think...
    The most stunning thing to Patrick Walsh is how quickly everything changed. California was in the middle of a surge in coronavirus cases around the Christmas holiday in 2020, but the head football coach of Serra High School in San Mateo was thinking about the future. It had been a few weeks since the California Interscholastic Federation had pushed back its delayed start to high school sports and there seemed to be no end in sight to the waiting. Walsh’s thoughts had begun to move beyond 2020. ”The fear I had was not only was it not gonna happen this year — we’re not gonna get anything,” Walsh recently recalled. “Like I’m worried about the fall of ‘21. Who’s fighting for the fall of ‘21? We were just sitting around, letting this stuff happen.” Walsh reached a conclusion: “We have to do something.” Two months later, Gov. Gavin Newsom officially gave the green light to play ball. Walsh and the coaches who had fought along with him took immense pride in the immediate aftermath. One year after the first games...
    Here’s everything you need to know about The Ultimate Fighter 30. The Ultimate Fighter is a reality television series that focuses on a house filled with potential UFC fighters. The concept usually revolves around the concept of two coaches, who draft their team from the show’s available talent. The fighters then take on one another in amateur bouts, with the winner usually progressing through the tournament held just for the show. Usually, the show is anchored by coaches who are set to meet in a fight later on, but that’s not always the case, like in season two, where middleweight champion Rich Franklin and welterweight champion Matt Hughes were coaches. In the 30th season, we’ll see Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena. Like Franklin and Hughes, both women are champions in different weight classes but are in fact booked for a fight after the show is over. It’s a rematch to their first encounter, where Pena shocked the world with a win over Nunes. The show is built around up-and-coming fighters for the most part, usually from one or two weight...
    Two of the NFL's youngest and brightest offensive minds renew their fascinating rivalry on Sunday, with a place in the Super Bowl up for grabs. Sean McVay's Los Angeles Rams lock horns with Kyle Shanahan's San Francisco 49ers at SoFi Stadium, Stan Kroenke's $4bn palace, which will also host Super Bowl LVI on February 13. The histories of McVay and Shanahan are intertwined, the pair cutting their teeth on Washington's wildly talented coaching staff from 2010-13.

    Oregon’s success on the field and emergence as a national brand was built on the cutting edge, but in crafting their new staff, the Ducks went where no other Pac-12 football program dared venture. First-year head coach Dan Lanning recently hired Tosh Lupoi as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach and Adrian Klemm as associate head coach, offensive line coach and run game coordinator. Both Lupoi and Klemm have deep ties to the West Coast, both have NFL experience, and both are known in the recruiting world as relentless, aggressive pursuers of talent. Also, both coaches have been investigated by the NCAA for their recruiting tactics at other schools. The rest of the Pac-12 has taken notice of the latest developments in Eugene. “Given their past history and experience in recruiting in the Pac-12 and the Western footprint, I think there is a real intrigue among Pac-12 staffs with Lupoi and Klemm,” said Brandon Huffman, the national recruiting editor for 247Sports who is based in the Pacific Northwest. “Will they have the success that was a strength for them in their...
    With new manager Mark Kotsay at the helm, the Oakland A’s switched up their coaching staff heading into the 2022 season. The team officially added Brad Ausmus as the team’s bench coach, a MLB manager for five seasons with the Detroit Tigers from 2014 to 2017 and Los Angeles Angels in 2019. Ausmus provides managing experience behind Kotsay, who will make his big league managerial debut next season in place of Bob Melvin, who left to manage the San Diego Padres. The hitting coach staff saw the biggest transformation, with Tommy Everidge replacing Darren Bush as hitting coach and Chris Cron replacing Eric Mrtins as assistant hitting coach. Tommy Everidge, 38, spent eight seasons as a hitting coach in the A’s farm system, working his way up as a coach for Short-Season Vermont in 2014, then Single-A Stockton, Double-A Midland and ending as the Triple-A Las Vegas hitting coach in 2021. The hitting coach changes come on the heel of a disappointing offensive season for the A’s, who missed the playoffs despite boasting a roster lined...
    Vic Fangio, Denver Broncos. (Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports) Black Monday will be here before you know it, and these NFL head coaches should be worried. Black Monday is only two weeks away, as these NFL head coaches should be feeling the heat. Thus far, only two teams will have new head coaches next season. The Las Vegas Raiders will replace Jon Gruden permanently. While Rich Bisaccia has done well in the interim, the Silver and Black may look to upgrade over their special teams coordinator. And then there’s the Jacksonville Jaguars mess that saw Urban Meyer get fired after only 13 games on the job. They are terrible!

    Aaron Rodgers is a Hall of Famer, but how he’s viewed in the history of the game could hinge on the Packers’ postseason success this year. This postseason has the chance to define Aaron Rodgers’ legacy. If the NFL regular season ended today, the road to the Super Bowl in the NFC would run through Lambeau Field for the second consecutive season, and the third time since Rodgers won his lone Lombardi Trophy following the 2010 season. Since Rodgers stood on the podium at AT&T Stadium as gold and green confetti swirled, the Packers have made the NFC Championship Game five times and failed to go any further. Playing in a division that has been Green Bay’s for the taking for nearly 20 years, winning eight NFC North championships since Rodgers’ arrival, it’s fair to wonder if Rodgers has come up small. Especially given all the resources of a star-studded roster, winnable division, and one of the sport’s most legendary of home field advantages That Rodgers has been surrounded by. To date, Rodgers has losses in the title game on...

    By Lauren M. Johnson and Rebekah Riess | CNN Two Atlanta-area high-school basketball coaches have been charged with second-degree murder after the heat-related death of a 16-year-old in August 2019, according to court records. Imani Bell was a junior at Elite Scholars Academy (ESA) in Clayton County and played varsity girls’ basketball. She was participating in mandatory conditioning drills outdoors in “extreme heat” on the afternoon she collapsed after running up the football stadium steps, according to a lawsuit filed in February by attorneys for the Bell family. A Clayton County grand jury indicted her coach Larosa Maria Walker-Asekere and her assistant Dwight Broom Palmer in July of second-degree murder, saying they, “irrespective of malice, did cause the death of lmani Bell, a human being.” They were also indicted on charges of cruelty to children in the second degree, involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct, court records show. The outdoor temperature at the time of Bell’s death ranged from 92 to 97 degrees, with a heat index between 101-103 degrees and a humidity level between 40 and...

    The International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided today to expel two coaches of the Belarus team from the Tokyo Games for their role in the attempt to forced repatriation of sprinter Krystsina Tsimanouskaya. The IOC has decided to sanction technicians in this way Artur Shimak and Yury Maisevich, after creating a disciplinary commission to “clarify the circumstances surrounding the incident,” as announced in a statement this Friday. “For the well-being of the athletes of the Belarusian National Olympic Committee who are still in Tokyo and as an interim measure, the IOC has canceled and withdrawn the accreditations of the two coaches on the day before.”, noted the international body. The two coaches were asked to leave the Olympic Village immediately and did so, according to the IOC, which added that they will both be offered “an opportunity to explain themselves.” Tsimanouskaya landed last Wednesday in Warsaw, after Poland was granted humanitarian asylum after he asked for help from the Japanese police while members of her national committee tried to force her to return to her country, which the athlete called an...

    Infections rise in 48 states; artist to blanket National Mall with 600K white flags for virus victims: Live COVID-19 updates Business, labor groups teaming in high-speed rail push Will a first-year head coach win Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season? Bettors at BetMGM are inclined to think so. The two most popular bets for Coach of the Year are coaches entering their first season running an NFL team. The Los Angeles Chargers’ Brandon Staley is the most-bet coach with 18.1% of wagers while the Atlanta Falcons' Arthur Smith is second with 16.7% of wagers. No other coach has been chosen by more than 7% of bettors. It’s easy to see why bettors are attracted to Staley and Smith. Both are entering jobs where the QB position seems settled. The Chargers have a promising QB in Justin Herbert coming off a strong rookie season and the Falcons continue to roll with the dependable Matt Ryan as their starter. The coach that’s drawing the most money is an established one, however. The Los Angeles Rams’ Sean McVay has...
    Trae Patton/NBC The Voice Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas used to date. For those who have been following Cyrus’s career when she was Hannah Montana and Jonas was putting out hits like “Year 3000” with his brothers, this is old news. But for those who are newer to the musicians, this may come as a shock.

    Getty Will LeBron James (center) and the Lakers celebrate again this year? The Lakers came into the All-Star break limping, losers of six out of their last eight game, which not only included losses to struggling teams like thee Wizards and Kings, but also featured losses by double-digit margins to contenders like the Jazz, Nets and even the Suns. True, Anthony Davis has been out with a calf injury during this stretch, but it shows a disturbing lack of depth for a team that ranks among the top contenders for this season’s championship. Resiliency was a hallmark of this team last season, but it is in short supply, it seems, with this year’s bunch.

    The first ax swung Wednesday morning as Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin handed head coach Claude Julien his walking papers.  Was it a surprise move? Somewhat. The Canadiens made big moves in the offseason and started the season like gangbusters. But in recent weeks that success had slowed to a crawl. After losing six of their last eight and three straight, including two to the Senators, Bergevin made the first firing of the season. To be fair, that was probably the only surprise — that Julien was the first to go. A bunch of bench bosses have been rumored to be on thin ice for a while but still have jobs despite their clubs still struggling. With Julien now on the market, there could be an influx of coaches looking for work. Last year, following the firing of Mike Babcock by the Maple Leafs, John Hynes (Devils), Pete DeBoer (Sharks), Peter Laviolette (Predators), Gerard Gallant (Golden Knights) and Bruce Boudreau (Wild) were all let go before the season finished. (Jim Montgomery and Bill Peters were also fired, but for off-ice...
    College basketball’s stretch run typically brings intensified interest in postseason position and hot seat speculation: If the coach isn’t churning toward success on Selection Sunday, is he headed for dismissal on Black Monday? The termination calculation isn’t necessarily the same this season, with rosters in constant flux, athletic budgets in disarray and pandemic optics at top of mind for university officials. No less than five coaches in the Pac-12 who might be on fragile ground in a normal year are seemingly safe this spring, for reasons outlined below. In other words, it’s time for a Pac-12 seat heat check (listed alphabetically): — Stanford’s Jerod Haase Why it should be hot: No program in the conference has defined mediocrity better than Stanford over Haase’s tenure. The Cardinal’s conference record in his first four seasons: 6-12, 11-7, 8-10 and 9-9. That’s 34-38, just a tick under .500. Stanford has recruited well, but the offense is consistently erratic and the atmosphere at once-rowdy Maples Pavilion is what you would expect to find in a bookstore. Why it’s not: Because Haase has produced the...

    Sean McVay and Matt LaFleur are two of the most successful coaches in the NFL. They also happen to be two of the youngest. Their paths cross when the Rams face the Packers at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday on Fox. McVay and LaFleur have a coaching tie that dates back to their time together on the Rams’ staff.

Bill O’Brien the coach proved to be a winner, helping the Houston Texans clinch the AFC South title four times in six seasons. Then there’s O’Brien the general manager, who nearly ran the franchise into the ground with costly trades and free-agent acquisitions. In the end, the two merged to create a problem found in Houston.

With little cap space and down two early draft selections, things won’t be getting better overnight. The McNair family has been willing to give all three coaches in the franchise’s history time to turn things around, so they’ll need someone for the long haul.

    The University of Arizona has self imposed a one-year postseason ban on its men's basketball team two months after the NCAA levied misconduct allegations against the program related to the 2017 federal probe into improper payments to recruits and coaches. The NCAA may still choose to tack on further punishment on top of the ban, which will deprive Arizona's athletic department of lucrative postseason television revenue for the 2020-21 season. The punishment stems from the FBI probe into corruption in college basketball recruiting circles. The investigation, revealed in 2017, resulted in the arrest of 10 individuals, most of whom were apparel company representatives, sports agency employees, and assistant coaches, such as Arizona's Book Richardson. Richardson was fired by the university and later pleaded guilty to accepting $20,000 in bribes from aspiring business manager Christian Dawkins. He was sentenced to three months in prison in 2019. Arizona was accused of nine counts of misconduct, including five Level I violations, in a Notice of Allegations sent by the NCAA in October. The violations include a lack of institutional control and failure to...
    While the focus is on one head coaching option, the Kansas City Chiefs have two that could fix many teams, including the Los Angeles Chargers. Fans shouldn’t be talking about the Los Angeles Chargers in a positive light. Yes, the team picked up a 30-27 victory against the Las Vegas Raiders, but it came in overtime on a late surge from Justin Herbert at the goal line. The Chargers entered Sunday with the worst special teams DVOA in the league. Things only got worse with two missed kicks from Michael Badgley. Throw in near two decades of coaching experience from Toub and his Rolodex of names he could add to the coaching staff makes him intriguing. The Chargers need a change in 2020. While Herbert would love to work with Bieniemy, a young OC could keep him on pace. Toub might be a name of out left field, but wasn’t Sean McVay as well? Keep an eye on both to leave one AFC West team and join another come this offseason. Next: Yes, the Chargers still need to fire Anthony Lynn
    Good luck if you’re forced to play these two teams in the postseason Some teams might be viewed as playoff contenders while others are viewed as one-and-done’s if they even make it. Then there several teams that might make a deep postseason push and upset several super teams along the way. Neither team is a guarantee to make the postseason, but even after losing in Week 11, they looked better than several winning clubs. Once it’s time for elimination, these two might be the ones playing spoiler for franchises looking to return to Tampa. Next: Will J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram return in time for Pittsburgh?
    The scouting report on Justin Herbert when he entered the draft out of Oregon was he had the tools to succeed as an NFL quarterback but would need some time to become more refined with the intricacies of the position. Thrust into the starting role far earlier than expected because of an injury to Los Angeles Chargers starter Tyrod Taylor, Herbert is on pace for the most prolific season ever for a rookie. One of the coaches most responsible for that transformation also could help the NFL in its quest to develop more minority coaches. Pep Hamilton joined the Chargers as one of the league’s two Black quarterback coaches this past offseason and could one day become a candidate for a much more consequential job. “I have no doubt that Pep Hamilton can be a head coach in this league. He’s had a tremendous impact on Justin. That’s why I brought him here,” said the Chargers’ Anthony Lynn, one of four minority head coaches in the NFL. “He’s a guy that can relate to people. He’s a good communicator, very...

    Trae Patton/NBC 14-year-old Carter Rubin astonished the coaches with his huge voice. Season 19 of NBC’s The Voice is heating up, with blind auditions coming to an end after Monday night’s episode of the show. This week, The Voice will take a break from its two-night-a-week schedule and only air on Monday night. This episode will be the last of the blind auditions, and each of the coaches will have full teams after it airs. So, what exactly does that mean for live shows? There are still two rounds of competition to get through before the live performances will start, meaning that there is at least a month before any of those episodes would air. What Happens After Blind Auditions? First, there are usually four or five episodes of Blind Auditions in a season of The Voice, and for this season, those will end on Monday, November 2, 2020. The following Monday, the Battle Rounds will begin. During these episodes, coaches will introduce the teams to their advisors and then pair up contestants to compete directly against one another. Here, half of each team...
    (CNN)For the first time in the NFL's history, three women were on the gridiron Sunday in an official capacity during a regular-season game.

Callie Brownson is the Browns' chief of staff, Jennifer King is Washington's full-year coaching intern, and Sarah Thomas is an NFL official. Both teams shared their excitement in being a part of a historic day on their social media accounts. "Making history.

Here’s the annual Yahoo Sports list of the top 20 Group of Five coaches who could draw interest from bigger programs. And as a bonus, there’s also five FCS coaches who have emerged on the radar. (If, of course, there’s much movement on the coaching carousel this year. We dove into that topic yesterday on Yahoo Sports.) 1.  Luke Fickell, CincinnatiLuke Fickell, 47, was targeted by Michigan State last season, and both Baylor and Florida State showed interest. At 22-5 the last two years, he’s emerged as the clear-cut top coach in the Group of Five. His buyout starts at $4 million, which in most financial climates won’t scare off a blue blood. Will his son’s commitment keep him at Cincinnati?2. Bryan Harsin, Boise StateHarsin, 43, has flirted with a few jobs, but the interest in him has yet to...
    The two former head coaches traded jabs at each other that mattered to nobody but them. George Karl and Mark Jackson have had somewhat of beef that dates back to when they were coaches. If you remember, Jackson’s Golden State Warriors faced off against Karl’s Denver Nuggets in the 2013 playoffs. Golden State players alleged that the Nuggets were playing dirty against them, and the coaches have had a quite animosity towards each other since. Well, that was reignited Thursday night as both coaches had of a war of words on Twitter. Mark Jackson was part of the commentary crew for Game 2 between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Los Angeles Lakers. He pointed out how Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony was playing exceptional defense since his arrival in Portland, particularly in Thursday’s contest. Jackson also mentioned how Anthony had a reputation for being a lackluster defender throughout his career, explaining that “there should be a shared responsibility for whoever allowed that defense to be played.” Karl, who has had teams known for their defensive excellence and coach Melo for...
    The New York Giants have two secret weapon coaches to help their most important young players By: Alexander Wilson August 16, 2020 PrevPreviousNew York Giants: Corey Ballentine Among Practice Standouts ShareTweet0 SharesWhen it comes to success, having a talented coaching staff is at the forefront of necessities. The New York Giants overhauled their entire regimen this off-season, bringing in Joe Judge and a bevy of former head coaches. Ranging from Freddie kitchens to Jason Garrett, the talented management should be an orchestrator for success. With Judge entering his first year as a head coach, there will be ups and downs in his development. However, he has plenty of experienced coaches to help him expedite the process. The Giants have two extremely underrated coaches that have joined the staff, mainly because of Judge’s links with New England and Alabama. Let’s take a look at two underrated coaches for the New York Giants: 1.) Jerry Schuplinski Landing Schuplinski was a fantastic move for the New York Giants, considering his past success with Jacoby...
    The preseason Coaches Poll was released Thursday, and Clemson was sitting at the top. Clemson was number one in the preseason poll, and the Ohio State Buckeyes followed at number two. Alabama, Georgia and LSU rounded out the top five. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Wisconsin checked in at number 12.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Clemson Football (@clemsonfb) on Aug 6, 2020 at 6:16am PDT Do I hate the initial rankings from the Coaches Poll? No. I can live with them. The top two teams have to be Clemson and Ohio State. If you pick any other team to be in the top two spots, then you don’t know what you’re talking about. Now, we can debate until the end of the day the order OSU and the Tigers should be in, but they’re absolutely the two best teams on paper. They both have elite coaches, NFL quarterbacks and pro talent all over the field. Any other team in the top two spots to start...
    Myles Brennan, Lanard Fournette, LSU Tigers. (Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images) Has LSU football earned the benefit of the doubt if they have a down year? LSU football won it all in 2019 but isn’t expected to repeat as champions in 2020. This is what happens when a college football team wins a national title. Many top players graduate or opt to go pro a year or two early. Some of the best coaches and coordinators on the staff are picked for better higher-paying jobs than the ones that got them this opportunity. For that reason, should we consider giving the LSU Tigers a pass in 2020? Heading into a season, we’re not entirely sure if we’ll have or not, LSU feels like somewhere between the second to the fourth-best team in its own division. The Bayou Bengals will likely be looking up at the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC West. How they fare against the Auburn Tigers and the Texas A&M Aggies will decide where they finish in the division.LSU tied a record with 14 NFL Draft picks...
    The Twins released their initial 60-man roster on Monday, a list that includes the organization’s top three prospects — Royce Lewis, Alex Kirilloff and Trevor Larnach — as part of the team’s taxi squad. The roster currently has 57 players active with two — Michael Pineda and Fernando Romero — on the restricted list. Pineda will make his way to Minneapolis to train but must sit 39 games as he serves out the remainder of his suspension for testing positive for a banned diuretic last September. Romero has been held up in the Dominican Republic with visa issues and never made it to spring training, which was suspended in mid-March because of the COVID-19 pandemic that has claimed the lives of more than 120,000 Americans. The Twins are not expecting Romero to report when the rest of his teammates do on Wednesday. The team plans to hold its first workout Friday at Target Field. The season is expected to begin on July 23 with most teams starting the next day. At that point, teams will be...

The Minnesota Twins are now down two coaches on Rocco Baldelli‘s staff for 2020. Because of the global pandemic, a pair of Twins coaches have been informed by the organization they will not be coaching this year. Per USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale, “The Minnesota Twins have informed bullpen coach Bob McClure, 68, and major league coach Bill Evers, 66, that they won’t be working games this year, citing health and safety concerns, per LaVelle Neal. They will still be paid.” The Minnesota #Twins have informed bullpen coach Bob McClure, 68, and major league coach Bill Evers, 66, that they wont be working games this year, citing health and safety concerns, per @LaVelleNeal.

    The biggest takeaway following the NFL’s two-day quarterback coaching summit is there’s no shortage of qualified minority candidates waiting for opportunities to be head coaches and coordinators. The league and the Black College Football Hall of Fame earlier this week held a virtual version of their summit, a third-year project aimed at improving the league’s diversity. Dozens of pro and college football coaches and assistants participated. “We hear it all the time about how nobody’s in the pipeline,” said Washington Redskins executive Doug Williams, who co-founded the Black College Football Hall of Fame with James “Shack” Harris. “I hope after (the summit) that we get away from pipeline and realize we’ve got a bunch of guys in line. All they’re asking for is an opportunity. The pipeline is full. The most important thing is to open up the valve.” There are three Black head coaches (Mike Tomlin, Anthony Lynn and Brian Flores), two Black general managers (Chris Grier and Andrew Berry), two Black offensive coordinators (Eric Bieniemy and Byron Leftwich) and two Black quarterback coaches (Pep Hamilton and Marcus...
    The term “hot seat” is one of the loosest terms used in college football when it comes to coaches.   There is a difference between facing pressure, which comes with the expectations of winning at the big-time programs, and the hot seat — which means you might be looking for a new job if you don’t win now.  MORE: Ranking college football coaches 1-130 for 2020 Sporting News separates the two heading into 2020. Here are five coaches on the hot seat and five more facing mounting pressure to win this season.   Five coaches on hot seat   Clay Helton, USC   The never-ending talk continues. Helton has stabilized the Trojans’ recruiting this offseason, and he will have a full year under new athletic director Mike Bohn to secure his status as the long-term coach for the Trojans. That said, USC is 13-12 the past two seasons and needs to re-establish itself as the team to beat in a wide-open Pac-12 South.   Kevin Sumlin, Arizona  The Wildcats are 9-15 since Sumlin took over, and that includes a 6-12 record in Pac-12 play.
