Interesting stat about playoff coaches


Posted: Dec 31, 2016 9:00 AM
 

If you take a look at the 4 coaches in the playoff you will see that all 4 of them rank in the top 9 in winning percentage among active FBS coaches.

Meyer - .855
Petersen - .826
Saban - .776
Dabo - .757

Take a look at them at their current schools and here's what you see:

Meyer - .923
Saban - .868
Dabo - .757
Petersen - .675

Career wins:
Saban - 209
Meyer - 165
Petersen - 119
Dabo - 87

Doesn't really mean anything related to insight to the games but I just thought it was interesting. If you want to see the full list of FBS coaches:

Another interesting page on that site is one where they rank the coaches in terms of how close they are to losing their job. Out of 128 coaches here's where the playoff coaches rank:

Chris Petersen - 117
Dabo Swinney - 120
Urban Meyer - 124
Nick Saban - 128

Remember that this is how in jeopardy the job is. Brian Kelly is 1st on the list and Boom is 33rd, listed as safe for now.
