2018 Final Ranking Of All 130 Head Coaches: How Good Were Their Seasons?

This might have been the craziest coaching carousel ever, with a whole slew of interesting moves – Kliff Kingsbury goes from fired to the NFL? Dana Holgorsen from West Virginia to Houston? Les Miles? Mack Brown? – but before diving into everything about the 2019 season, here’s one last look at how the coaches in 2018.

This is all very, very loosely based on opinions, expectations, who did the most with the least, and the least with the most.

This is NOT a ranking of how good or how talented each of these coaches are/were. This isn’t about who the best coaches are. This is a ranking on how good a job each coach did this season considering what each one had to work with and where things finished up.

If you were supposed to win your conference title, and didn’t, that’s a problem. If you weren’t supposed to do much and came up with a winning season and a bowl victory, boom.

Of course, as Bill Parcells famously said, you are what your record is. Start with that, throw in the schedules and talent level these guys had to work with, and …


10. Dino Babers, Syracuse

2017 Final Coach Ranking: 86
2018 Record: 10-3

He was just one … fourth … down … stop from beating Clemson for the second year in a row. Even with that loss, Babers made Syracuse football matter again with a ten-win season and a dominant bowl victory over West Virginia. With the attacking defensive style and fun offense, who doesn’t want to play for him?

Very nice. Think their editor may need to update that list though, because for every coach it says 2017 Record, not 2018 Record.

Well this confirms our worst fears: The cat is out of the bag with Babers. He is as good as wearing a scarlet R coaching for New Jersey State Vocational of New Brunswick by 2020 at the latest. SU can't possibly compete with a program that was a founding member of the American Athletic Conference.
