3rd Annual USB College Football Head Coach Power Rankings (SUN BELT)

Everyone knows how much we love football here at THE Ultimate Sports Blog. Now that the NFL Draft is over, it’s time to completely turn our attention to next season.

We are just about four months away from seeing some college football folks! That means it’s time for the THIRD ANNUAL COLLEGE FOOTBALL HEAD COACH POWER RANKINGS!

Yes. One of the most popular features here at THE USB is back once again. I don’t think I need to beat into your head how important it is to have a good head coach in college football. You need a guy who can not only win you some football games, but you also need a guy who can recruit the right kind of athletes to your school to do exactly that.

Here are my power rankings for the top college football head coaches, once again broken down by conference.

Let’s start with the Sun Belt Conference because there are maybe four of you out there who care about it……
