Were there really college football coach hirings worse than Lane Kiffin's?


Dr. Saturday's Matt Hinton has come up with a list of "The worst coaching hires of the decade (non-Kiffin edition)." This was in response to a contention by The Sporting Blog's Brian Cook that "We can now confidently proclaim (Sexy Kiffin) the worst hire of the decade in college football." So Hinton has to just go ahead and prove him wrong.
How bad were Hinton's choices for the list? So bad that Notre Dame's hiring of George O'Leary only makes it to the "Honorable Mention" list, at least in his view. Though O'Leary's "creative writing" on his resume certainly would count in my book. Maybe O'Leary didn't make it because Ron Zook takes up two spots for being head coach of both Florida and Illinois.
Hinton's choice for Number One? Alabama's hire of Mike Price. The reign of Price as Crimson Tide coach was terminated before the season began due to that little stripper related scandal. Ed Orgeron (Ole Miss), Ron Prince (Kansas State), and Steve Kragthorpe (Louisville) also make the list.
Not on the list, but probably should be: Michigan's hire Rich Rodriguez. Which is what Cook compared Tennessee's hire of Kiffin to in the first place. Though honestly the Rich Rod hire should have made the list. Expect a classic meltdown to happen in Ann Arbor this upcoming season.
