College football coaches can seemingly never be comfortable in their jobs (unless they’re named Saban or Meyer), and even after only three weeks of play there are some coaches who could be looking at early exits.

Oh the life of a college football coach. Big paychecks offset by early mornings, late nights, no weekend time, no family time, tremendous pressure and health issues.

And oh by the way…you’re fired.

Yes, it can happen that quickly. One minute you’re on top of the world and fans are lifting you on high, and the next they’re calling for your head and roasting effigies on a spit (no really, it’s happened). Some programs are content with losing just a few games each season, while others look at a single loss as doomsday.

After three weeks of play in 2015 and some big matchups, we’re starting to get a pretty good idea of which programs are meeting or exceeding expectations, and which ones are failing with flying colors. Those coaches had best beware in Week 4, because there are a whole flock of Brothers of the Night’s Watch with daggers at the ready.

Think it’s too soon to start talking about hot seats for coaches? Keep in mind that our first firing in 2014 came after Week 4, when Charlie Weis was given his walking papers by the Kansas Jayhawks, and June Jones resigned from SMU on Sept. 8 before they could even put the postage stamp on the pink slip.

So who’s in line for the firing squad right now? Here are some coaches that need to be wary of their performance.
