College football coaches on the hot seat heading into the season

Yardbarker Logo By Shiloh Carder of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 20: Applewhite is entering just his second full season at Houston, so it may be a stretch to say his job is in jeopardy. However, Houston put up a pedestrian 7-5 mark a season after the school felt it had a chance at a playoff berth and was flirting with a Big 12 invite. All that seems so distant, which may not be Applewhite's fault, but if he continues to have so-so seasons with the Tom Herman era fresh in everyone's minds (not to mention Applewhite's rough go as Texas' offensive coordinator), the school may feel the heat to cut bait.
