David Pollack calls out Pro Football Focus for Coach of the Year graphic
There are a lot of deserving candidates for Coach of the Year in college football already this season. It’s hard to pick who should be the front-runner, especially with so many games still to play.
However, Pro Football Focus had 3 of its analysts each make a pick this week, and here’s who they each decided was the best choice at this point:
Anthony Treash: Texas’ Steve Sarkisian
Mike Renner: Cincinnati’s Luke Fickell
Trevor Sikkema: Georgia’s Kirby Smart
ESPN’s David Pollack wasn’t too impressed with the selections. He seems to think there are more deserving candidates, which he shared when he retweeted PFF and called it out:

Pollack listed a trio of coaches who are more than deserving candidates.
Mel Tucker has led Michigan State to a 6-0 start and has the Spartans ranked No. 10 in the country. Kirk Ferentz and Iowa are 6-0 and ranked No. 2. Meanwhile, Mark Stoops has helped make Kentucky a surprise team, as the Wildcats are 6-0 and ranked No. 11.
But this will be something for the award voters to pick when the season is over. And it could be a difficult decision to make, considering the numerous teams that have outperformed expectations and the others that have simply been dominant.
