The 2023 season is in the past, and teams are looking to 2024. Days after the season ended, Nick Saban threw a bomb into the college football field and just sat back and watched the wreckage. Saban announced his retirement two days after the National Championship causing a shift in two of the three major programs of college football.

Kalen Deboer took over at Alabama, leaving Washington in the ruins with no head coach and multiple players leaving for the draft. Jedd Fisch was hired at Washington, leaving Arizona before they make a move to Big 12 next season. Now that all of that is settled, what is next?

Well a lot of these questions will be answered based on how well coaches prepare their teams. So the big question is, which coaches are under the most pressure in 2024?
