Rich Rodriguez, Arizona
Rich-Rod is entering his sixth season as head coach at Arizona. Outside of a 10-4 season in 2014 that ended with a loss in the Fiesta Bowl, the Wildcats have been mediocre — and things seem to be getting worse.
Case in point? Arizona went 8-5 in Rodriguez’s first two seasons and won two bowl games. The 2014 season was the aforementioned 10-4 campaign. Arizona has gone 7-6 and 3-9 since then. In 2016, Rodriguez and company lost eight in a row before upsetting Arizona State, 56-35.
Rodriguez is a character and a decent recruiter. But if Arizona football wants to be anywhere near competitive with the likes of its basketball team, perhaps 2017 will be Rich-Rod’s last season if he can’t turn things around
