Coaches Class of 2007


After this utter disappointment of a football season in CRN's third year at UCLA, I was curious to see the progression of other notable coaching hires from 2007.  Granted each program is different and each of these coaches entered with varying levels of talent on their teams, they each walked into similar situations and faced the same, if not higher expectations, as CRN when he returned to Westwood.  The list below shows Win/Loss records of  coaches in their first three years at their programs.  This is not a comprehensive list, just a small sample of the more high profile coaching hires from 2007 (apologies for the formatting, but I always struggle with columns here):

Coach                     School               07-08        08-09         09-10           3-year total

Rick Neuheisel     UCLA                    4-8            7-6 (B)        4-8                15-22 (40.5%)

Rich Rodriguez     Michigan               3-9           5-7               7-5                15-22 (40.5%)

June Jones            SMU                   1-11          8-5 (B)        7-6 (B)            16-22 (42.1%)

Mike Sherman       Texas A&M           4-8            6-7              9-3 (B)          19-18 (51.3%)

Houston Nutt         Ole Miss               9-4 (B)       9-4 (B)       4-8                 22-16 (57.9%)

Bobby Petrino        Arkansas              5-7            8-5 (B)        10-2 (B)         23-14 (62.2%)

Paul Johnson        Georgia Tech          9-4 (B)       11-3 (B)      6-6               26-13 (66.7%)

Bo Pelini                 Nebraska             9-4 (B)       10-4 (B)     10-3 (B)         29-11 (72.5%)

(B = Bowl Game Appearance)

You can all draw your own conclusions from this list.  Personally, I look at it and think that it's not unreasonable to expect more from CRN after 3 years.
