Sun Belt Coaches Rankings

2. Dan McCarney, North Texas

Career Record: 56-85

It’s not like things got that stale at Iowa State. McCarney had come up with five seven-plus winning campaigns in seven years at a tough place to consistently win, and then he was dumped. After bouncing around as a defensive line coach, he’s getting another shot at North Texas and he might be fantastic. Only 58 when the season starts, there’s still time for him to make the Mean Green shine.

Hot Seat Status: None. After the Todd Dodge disaster, McCarney will get at least three years to make everything better.

The Coaching Change Will Come … In ten years. At his age, McCarney isn’t going anywhere, but he’s young enough to build up the program and make it his for the next decade. It was an underappreciated hire.

I appreciate this hire greatly and it seems the rest of the fans do... What am I missing?

this isn't a ranking of the best coaches in the Sun Belt; this is a ranking of the coaches you'd want to lead the program for the next five years or more.

Keeping this in mind, it's a fair ranking of the coaches. Personally, I'd take Coach Mac over Mario Cristobal.

I assume the "underappreciated" refers to the media--they haven't given a whole lot of attention to the hire.
