Two top-shelf coaching jobs are now open for the 2022 season, weeks ahead of the usual hiring/firing season. When USC and LSU open at the same time, some other coaches are about to get paid—either for taking the jobs or using them as leverage with their current employers. There could be multiple crossover candidates, particularly Penn State’s James Franklin (11), whose reported $7 million salary is surpassed by only David Shaw and Dan Mullen among coaches who have never made the College Football Playoff.
A Dash breakdown of both positions, and which one should be more attractive to coaches.
USC (12). The historical view: seven national championships since the AP poll era began in 1936. The years: 1962, ’67, ’72, ’74 (split with Oklahoma), ’78 (split with Alabama), 2003 (split with LSU), ’04. Number of coaches who have won national championships: three (John McKay, John Robinson, Pete Carroll). Conference championships: 39, spanning from 1927 to 2017.
LSU (13). The historical view: four national championships since the AP poll era began in 1936. The years: 1958 (split with Iowa), 2003 (split with USC), ’07, ’19. Number of coaches who have won national championships: four (Paul Dietzel, Nick Saban, Les Miles, Ed Orgeron). Conference championships: 16, spanning from 1896 to 2019.https://5e902cf1d3a6dc3ac27abdd065649954.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html
Chances of winning a national title: advantage LSU. The last three coaches of the Tigers all won one, and it can be argued that two of those three aren’t very good (looking at you, Mad Hatter and Coach O). At USC, the golden eras primarily belong to two men, McKay (plus spinoff Robinson) and Carroll.
