OT: NFL Network: Top 10 College Coaching Flops
 
NFL Network is airing one of their top 10 countdowns based on the worst college to pro coaches in the history of the league. Now the question is where will Spurrier come in? Personally I think hes going to be in the top 3, but for me my top college coaching flop will have to be Jimmy Johnson. Anyone that leads the Cowboys to two Super Bowl titles and leaves them primed for a third is a terrible coach in my book.

Will be interesting to see if they rank Butch Davis among the top 10, especially considering his history with the Network.

I think that if anything the guys who make the list will be Bobby Petrino, Steve Spurrier, Lou Holtz, Nick Saban, Dennis Ericson, Mike Riley, Butch Davis, and Rich Brooks.

Bobby Petrino has got to take the #1 spot. As for Jimmy Johnson, wasn't he forced out? Plus you can't possibly be a flop if you win two Super Bowls!

But he won them for the Cowboys. To me thats unforgiveable.

Curious about Campo. I know he won a SB in his first year, but he failed horribly.

Seriously, Jimmy Johnson??? He didn't leave....he was kind of forced out by Jerry. Jerry thought he could do what Jimmy did, which was talent evaluation, and after Switzer one a superbowl with Jimmys players, Jimmys offense, Jimmy's playbook her decided to leave also. That is just cowboy hating if you say Jimmy Johnson was a FLOP as an NFL coach. He is one of the best talent evaluaters that was in the NFL.

You must be thinking of Switzer.

Once again, your sarcasm is flying over some people's heads.

Anyhow, good list. Where does Butch Davis fall here?

I don't know that anyone could have as bad a 2nd year as the ole ball coach did w/our beloved Skins. His first year was acceptable, but the team then nosedived in the 2nd half of the 03 season w/T. Hassellback putting up a 0 passer rating v. Dallas.

When I think about it, those times seem thankfully like light years ago. If ever you think Joe Gibbs didn't do a good job in his 2nd stint, watch some tape of the 2nd half of the season of the 03 Skins, that team totally tanked. Gibbs took over the next year & rebuilt this franchise.

Freddy, I don't care who the coach is, when your starting QB is Tim Hasselbeck, you're screwed. Of course the same can be said for Shany Matthews and Waffle or whatever his name was.

Could somebody please post the order in which NFL Network had them ranked?

If I had to guess, I'd say Petrino is first, followed by Spurrier, and then Nick Saban. Butch Davis is probably top five, Erickson is probably top seven, and the other guys I think i'm too young to know about considering I don't know who they are. I'm putting Petrino first because the man was such a colossal failure that he left 13 games into his first season as the coach, I think he's the first college coach to do something like that. All the other coaches at least stayed on a full season.

Pete Carroll has to be mentioned here too. If not for his failure in NFL coaching then for his contrasting success when he left the NFL for USC. I think this means that he just doesn't get the pro game at all.

I'd give the top spot to Saban just because of how much of an a-hole he is.
