Coaching requires any man to wear a number of different hats.
They have to advisors, mentors, teachers and recruiters. Then they have to deal with the media and play a game almost every Saturday in the fall, perhaps in one of the most hostile atmospheres in the country.
According to Aaron Torres of FOX Sports, four SEC coaches are among the 20 best in the country at doing all of these things.
Nick Saban, to nobody’s surprise, was ranked the No.1 coach in all of college football. Torres had this to say about the Alabama leader:
“Saban stats at Alabama read more like hieroglyphics than actual football numbers. A 107-18 record overall. 61-12 in the SEC. 10+ wins eight straight seasons. Six division titles. Four SEC titles. Four national championships. And that doesn’t even include what he did at either LSU (where he won an additional national championship), Michigan State or Toledo.
At this point, the question isn’t whether Saban is the best coach in college football. It’s whether he’s the best of all-time.”
The next SEC coach to make an appearance is Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze at No. 14 followed by Kevin Sumlin at No. 16 and Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema at No. 18.
Former Georgia head coach Mark Richt came in at No. 11 while a potential future SEC head coach in Tom Herman came in at No. 12.
