Here's the Top 10:
- 1. Houston Nutt (Arkansas) - 1998
2. Tommy Bowden (Clemson) - 1999
3.(T) Mike Leach (Texas Tech) - 2001
3.(T) Al Groh (UVA) - 2001
3.(T) Greg Schiano (Rutgers) - 2001
3.(T) Gary Pinkel (Missouri) - 2001

7.(T) Mark Mangino (Kansas) - 2002
7.(T) Jeff Tedford (Cal) - 2002

- 1. Tom O'Brien - Just missed the top position on the list. He joined Boston College in 1997, but he moved to NCSU this year.
2. Glen Mason - Was hired at Minnesota in 1997. However, he got fired last month thereby eliminating him from the list.
3. Jim Leavitt - USF coach since 1996. However, USF has only been a BCS school for 2 years.
4. Randy Edsall - UConn coach since 1999. However, UConn has only been a BCS school since 2004.
So the question is...how long is "long enough" to wait for your head coach to deliver a BCS Bowl bid? Update: Consider that 35 different BCS schools have made BCS appearances since 1998. There are only 65 schools in BCS conferences.
