Best/Worst Coaching Values - 2019 YTD

Recommended Posts

Below is a chart with the total head coaching compensation for 123 of the 130 FBS head coaches where 2019 data is available, bumped up against their respective school's Sagarin Rating through yesterday's games. Of note:

  • Coaches in the upper left corner are the worst value - 2019 total compensation vs. 2019 Sagarin Rating 
  • Coaches in the bottom right hand corner are the best value (this would be a good area for Kelly to identify and consider G5 coaching candidates)
  • Coaches circled in red have already been fired this year
  • Charlie Strong is circled in green

This is surprising. Most of us were under the impression that CCS wasn’t being paid very much and our team was doing really well.

What if we try turning the graph upside down? Would that make it better?

The media even printed articles on it....

That aren't part of the "P6"? These are the top four non-P6 coaches whose team have a Sagarain Rating of 70 or higher (inside the top 66)

  • Bryan Harsin, Boise State ($1.75M, 79.43 Sagarin Rating)
  • Eliah Drinkwitz, Appalachian State ($750k, 78.60) - previously the OC at NC State and Boise State
  • Billy Napier, ULL ($875k, 72.54) - OC at ASU and WR coach at Alabama
  • Gary Anderson, Utah State ($900k, 70.61) - second stint as USU HC; previously the HC at Orgeon State and Wisconsin

Other coaches to lake at from the FCS ranks include:

  • Matt Entz, North Dakota State (76.81 Sagarin Rating) - first year as HC
  • Curt Cignetti, James Madison (70.92) - three head coaching stints over the last three years

Our options will likely be a lower level head coach (see above - options appear thin and none with a Florida background), non-elite coordinator (elite coordinators will likely land at a P5 school) or a retread head coach (this will be the most likely option we go even with our experience with Strong).

Bry, you think any of those 4 you listed in the lower right corner would come here? None seem likely.

If we’re looking for a new coach it’s either coordinator or retread. Phil Fulmer may still want the job.

Harsin actually has a better situation that if he came to USF. Anderson is in his second stint at USU and doubt he leaves anytime soon. USF would be a step up in conference and pay for Drinkwitz and Napier, but a lower level P5 school may grab Drinkwitz now that he has Appalachian State ranked and a legit NY6 contender.. If Purdue can get out from underneath Jeff Brohm and his $6.6M salary (8th highest) they are going to be in the market for a less expensive coach. I still think its going to be a retread who flamed out at a P5 school a la Charlie Strong.
