USC started the 2022 head coaching carousel rather early this season, relieving Clay Helton of his duties after a Week 2 loss to Stanford. Head coach firings are inevitable in all sports. With so many programs weighing their future options, here is a list of coaches looking to escape the hot seat.

Scott Frost – Nebraska

I’m not sure coach Forst can save his job in Nebraska, but this week gives him a great opportunity to see if he can. Nebraska has a David vs. Goliath matchup in front of them as they take on the #3 Oklahoma Sooners this weekend. Frost has yet to secure a winning record at his alma mater with an overall record of 14-21. an embarrassing loss Saturday could have the Nebraska native son staring at a pink slip.

Coach Babers has yet to recreate Syracuse’s success in 2018 when the Orange finished 10-3. Since the end of that season, Syracuse is 7-18, going an abysmal 1-10 last season. While creating a football brand at Syracuse takes time, Babers is in his sixth season with a record of 25-37. The team has started 1-1 this season and doesn’t play another conference game until October. Babers’s seat will be safe a little while longer if the team takes care of what is in front of them in September.

Scott Satterfield РLouisville

A seat that could become rather warm as the season progresses would be Scott Satterfield’s in Louisville. Satterfield hasn’t had a winning season at Louisville since his first year in 2019. The program continues to decline as fans are not enjoying the product they see on the field.

Fans are starting to become displeased with the culture of Louisville football. Satterfield is entering his third full season with a program that was left in a bad place when Bobby Petrino was let go in 2018. Louisville will play one more non-conference game Friday against UCF before starting ACC play. Satterfield’s seat is hot but could become much hotter before the Cardinals welcome in-state rival Kentucky to finish the 2021 season.
