The SEC dominates when it comes to the top 10 coaches in Power 5 college football, according to the latest CBS Sports rankings.
Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports compiled the coaching rankings, publishing the Top 25 on Wednesday. Six SEC coaches make Wednesday’s Top 25 with a particularly strong presence in the top half. Four coaches make the Top 10 while Ed Orgeron is next at No. 11. Only Mark Stoops is outside the Top 10, checking in at No. 22.
