Now more than ever, college football head coaches seem to be jumping ship to greener pastures when the opportunity arises.
We saw Lincoln Riley (USC) and Brian Kelly (LSU) make surprising moves this offseason due to a mixture of program history, location and financials at their new respective schools.
Other programs such as Alabama and Georgia will continue to be viewed as one of the most attractive destinations for a head coach due to their recent and consistent dominance.
A program such as Texas will always be relevant no matter how good the on-field product is at the time. It’s one of the most valuable programs in the country and offers several other attractive incentives.
While the top jobs in college football are often debated each offseason, Brad Crawford of 247Sports released his updated rankings of the top 10 jobs ahead of the 2022 season.
The Texas job landed above USC, Clemson, Texas A&M and Oklahoma among others. Take a look at Crawford’s full rankings below.
