Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury

The pressure is always on college football coaches to succeed. Whether it’s the pressure to win or the pressure to recruit high-level players, heavy is the head that wears the crown in college football circles.

With that in mind, some coaches enter the 2017 college football season in great standing with their schools and fanbases. Think Clemson’s Dabo Swinney for a great example of that. Others, though, could be entering do-or-die seasons. Every win, and every loss, could be the difference between having a job and not having a job heading into the 2018 season.

These six coaches fit that bill.
