CBS Sports Reporter Talks SEC Coaches in the Hot Seat
Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide have made it hard for the other teams in the conference to maintain their program.
Other coaches in the SEC are trying to keep up with the success Saban's had in Tuscaloosa, and when those expectation aren't met, these coaches start to get themselves in the hot seat.
Outside of the Georgia Bulldogs and possibly the Auburn Tigers, the SEC has been lackluster this season. Texas A&M has bounced back after a tough comeback win by UCLA earlier in the season. Head coach Kevin Sumlin began the season with a warm seat until the Aggies won their last four games including a win over South Carolina on Saturday.
One coach that has been on the hot season for a few seasons is Tennessee Volunteers head coach Butch Jones. The Vols escaped Georgia Tech Yellow in an overtime thriller in Atlanta to begin the season, however it was another team in Georgia that has possibly decided the fate of Jones' job in the near future.
Jones and the Volunteers dropped a game at home game against the Georgia Bulldogs in a 41-0 shutout, the first shutout loss in the program since 1994.
With Jones not taking the Volunteers to the next level in the SEC East, and LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron losing to the Troy Trojans at home, snapping their non-conference home streak, and also during the school's homecoming weekend, the question remains who's the next coach to get bounced out of the SEC?
CBS Sports reporter and host of SEC Smothered and Covered Barrett Sallee joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to break down the coaches in the hot seat and also talk about Alabama's dominating victory over the Ole Miss Rebels.
