CBS Sports ranks the hot seat level for every SEC coach heading into the 2019 season
One of the hottest topics heading into each season in the Southeastern Conference is the level of warmth under some of the league’s coaches.
While many may scoff at the media preseason poll that annually comes following the conclusion of SEC Media Days, the reality is those polls often set expectations for many fans heading into each season. For example, after Butch Jones failed to deliver an SEC East title on Rocky Top after the Vols were the overwhelming favorite to do so heading into the 2016 season, the clock on his job officially began counting down.
So who has the hottest seat in the SEC heading into the 2019 season? It all depends on who you ask but CBS Sports recently published a list ranking the hot seats for all 130 FBS teams on a scale of zero to five. A hot seat level of zero indicates there is no hot seat, while five means that the coach must win immediately or face being fired.
