3. Lincoln Riley, USC
Two years ago, Lincoln Riley was arguably one of the hottest coaching hires in all of college football in recent memory.
After finishing his first season 11-3, USC came out of the gates hot to start this year, rallying off six straight wins to open the season.
Things took a turn quickly, however, as USC has lost five out of their last six games.
The latest chapter in the Lincoln Riley saga came this past weekend when USC suffered a 38-20 loss to a UCLA program that is having coaching woes of its own.
As the sixth-highest-paid coach in all of college football, the leash for Riley has to be short.
