There are a number of coaches heading into the 2017 season who need to have good seasons. Some maybe need a great season to keep their jobs. Here are some coaches who need turnaround seasons in 2017.
Hugh Freeze (Ole Miss) Freeze is 39-35 in five seasons but the program is under an NCAA cloud and sanctions are coming.
Kliff Kingsbury (Texas Tech) Kingsbury is just 9-23 in Big 12 play and his team's defense is embarrassing.
Dave Doeren (North Carolina State) Doeren is 25-26 in four seasons and the faithful are getting restless.
Jim Mora (UCLA) Mora is 12-13 overall and 7-11 in conference play the past two years. He does have a $12 million buyout though.
Rick Rodriguez (Arizona) Rods only won 3 games last year and needs a turnaround season badly.
Brian Kelly (Notre Dame) Kelly is 59-31 overall but ND will not tolerate another four win season.
I know there are others so feel free to add them.
