The Ducks are coming off a Pac-12 championship and have the look of a College Football Playoff contender again.  MORE 2020 COACH RANKINGSACC | Big TenUtah’s Kyle Whittingham and Stanford’s David Shaw are the other top 25 coaches on the list. The conference also features three new coaches in Washington’s Jimmy Lake, Washington State’s Nick Rolovich and Colorado’s Karl Dorrell.  The next elite coach might be the one who gets the conference back in the College Football Playoff for the first time since 2016.  With that in mind, here’s a deeper look at our Pac-12 coach rankings for 2020 (record at current school):   2020 Pac-12 Coach Rankings RANKCOACHSCHOOLWLPCTOVR1Mario CristobalOregon217.750152Kyle WhittinghamUtah13164.672183David ShawStanford8634.717214Clay HeltonUSC4022.645265Herm EdwardsArizona State1511.577306Justin WilcoxCal2018.526487Chip KellyUCLA717.292538Jimmy LakeWashington00.000649Nick RolovichWashington State0.00006510Jonathan SmithOregon State717.2927711Kevin SumlinArizona915.3757812Karl DorrellColorado00.00096Quick reads    — Cristobal made a 28-spot jump in our overall rankings, and the recruiting at Oregon has contributed to that quick rise since he took over. The Ducks are 13-5 in conference play the past two seasons and figure to be the favorite to win the Pac-12 in most preseason publications.   — Cristobal’s rise coincides with a drop for Shaw, who still maintains a .717 winning percentage. That’s the best among active coaches in the conference, but a .500 record the past two seasons and a 4-8 campaign in 2019 have that program on the spot.  — What do we do with Clay Helton? We initially had him in the top 25, but we dropped him out at the last minute. Helton has steadied the recruiting with the Trojans heading into 2021, but the program cannot slip down this season. USC is just 13-12 the past two seasons; but it does come with an 11-7 record in Pac-12 play.  — Arizona State’s Herm Edwards has a case to be in the top 25 given that the Sun Devils could be in the mix in the Pac-12 South. He’s 15-11 with a bowl victory since taking over, but a .500 record in league play has keep this program from a true breakthrough. The Pac-12 is looking for its next elite coach.  Chris Petersen’s decision to retire at Washington means that the conference does not have a coach in the top 10 of our 1-130 coach rankings for the first time since 2016.  last_img read more

The press conference did little to allay the fears of a distrustful public and only served to emboldened the formerly cowering workforce to rip into Goodell with aplomb.Already the players are circling around the commissioner in the waters and, with Goodell hemorrhaging so much blood from this public relations catastrophe, commenced to a feeding frenzy on their lame duck commissioner because of his penchant for giving non-denial denials and spitting out ambiguous responses that failed to answer pointed questions.Take a look at the current and former players rip the “law-and-order” commissioner who for his lack of leadership on a embarrassing string of domestic violence and child abuse cases, for his hypocrisy, as well as a hint of a what some players believe is a cover up on the Ray Rice investigation.last_img read more
