"If every Power 5 job in America opened tomorrow ..."
Which would be most desirable? Which would have the least appeal?
That is again the hypothetical question we're posing in our second annual attempt to rank the Power 5 head coaching jobs, from worst to best. There's a new top job this year; Texas, last year's No. 1, has been bumped.
We've broken down the jobs into five categories, using the expectations for the program as it stands today as a general guideline for the groupings. I enlisted the help of four ESPN college football reporters -- Chris Low, Ryan McGee, Adam Rittenberg and Mark Schlabach -- to settle on the rankings, considering criteria such as location, recruiting base, budgets and administrative stability. Thoughts from coaches, agents and administrators were then solicited for feedback on the rankings.
The countdown continues today with jobs 45-31.
