What’s the best football coaching job in the SEC? I’m guessing 95% of you just muttered “Florida” to yourselves.
Well the folks at AthlonSports.com agree. In a ranking of the league’s coaching jobs from best to worst, the unnamed writer of the piece lays out this case for the Gator top job:
“Location. Location. Location. Florida is a public university in a state that produces a tremendous amount of top-flight talent. Ben Hill Griffin Stadium offers one of the best atmospheres in college football, and the fan base is as rabid as there is in the nation.”
Who’s to argue? Bug-eyed Will Muschamp (click the headline for a closer look at Florida 2011 football promotional poster) has landed in the most enviable position in the SEC. With the exception of high expectations, the UF job is rife with positives.
We’ve seen these lists on many occasions and they almost always rank the league’s head coaching gigs in the same order. Here’s the full list — as well as the full article – from Athlon:
7. South Carolina
9. Ole Miss
11. Mississippi State
