Rank 'Em: Most Powerful College Coaches

Created: August 4, 2009, 10:12 AM

Where does Urban Meyer rank?

Urban Meyer is set to earn more money than any of his SEC gridiron colleagues, but is he one of the most powerful coaches in college sports? That's up to you, SportsNation.

Meyer's new deal, worth $24 million over six years with a $500,000 buyout clause, puts him at the top of the class in the SEC and on par with USC's Pete Carroll nationally. Meyer also has two national championships and the apparent adoration of a football-crazy school. But is he more powerful than Joe Paterno at Penn State? What about Mike Krzyzewski's basketball empire at Duke or Pat Summitt's hold over Tennessee?

Rank the most powerful of powerbrokers in college sports, SportsNation.
