Urban Meyer Ranked Top College Football Head Coach

Sporting News ranked the top head coaches in college football and the leader of last year’s College Football Playoff champion sits atop the list.

Urban Meyer, head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes, jumped Alabama head coach Nick Saban as the No. 1 coach in college football. Here is what the Sporting News had to say about the 50-year-old:

“The only that stops Urb is Urb. He ended his run of success at Florida by allowing players to gain too much power and eventually control the team. Avoiding that trap is critical to future success.”

It’s the first time Saban has not been at the top of the list in three years.
