Heading into College Football Week 3, here are five head coaches on the College Football Hot Seat that need a win. 

We are only three weeks into the 2023 college football season and technically only two weeks for some programs since only a handful played in Week 0.

However, that doesn’t mean that college football head coaches aren’t on the hot seat already. Winning is the only way to cool the hot seat and so far, some of the head coaches haven’t done that.

Jimbo Fisher is the biggest name right now on the college football hot seat. The Texas A&M football head coach and his team suffered a tough loss at Miami last week. It’s one that got folks talking about whether or not he will ever succeed in College Station.

Fisher was brought in to make Texas A&M football a national title contender. Instead, the Aggies have one No. 1 recruiting class and a single double-digit win season to show for their massive investment.

The loss to Miami, in the second season of a rebuild/reload under Mario Cristobal, in a half-empty stadium, seems to have really stuck in the craw of Texas A&M football fans who believe the program should be a national title contender.

Texas looks like one right now, which is only going to add pressure to Fisher. However, he’s not the only college football head coach on the hot seat, and here are five head coaches who need a win in College Football Week 3.

The 48-33 loss to Miami has people talking about Fisher’s job again. Louisiana Monroe isn’t a juggernaut by any means and the Aggies should cruise to an easy win.

But The Warhawks are 2-0 and coached by Terry Bowden. He’s pulled a few upsets in his career and his team can certainly pound the rock with an average of 246 yards per game on the ground.

Yet, even a tight game will heat things up for Fisher. The Aggies have to win in dominant fashion and if somehow, there was an upset, it might be the end for Jimbo.

For his sake, Texas A&M needs to cover the spread and start winning some big names…soon.
