Every year, college football insider Bruce Feldman of The Athletic puts together a list ranking the top coaches in all of college football. Naturally, every year, that list caused quite a bit of controversy among college football fans, and this year is no different on that front.

On Thursday morning, Bruce Feldman released his ranking of the top coaches in college on The Athletic, ranking Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban at the top with Georgia Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart just behind him at No. 2.

Feldman then has Dabo Swinney of Clemson at No. 3, Jim Harbaugh of Michigan at No. 4, and James Franklin at No. 5 with Ohio State head coach Ryan Day at No. 6.

Behind them, USC Trojans head coach Lincoln Riley comes in at No. 7, and LSU head coach Brian Kelly at No. 8 while Kyle Whittingham of Utah ranks No. 9 and Lance Leipold of Kansas ranks No. 10.

The list caused quite a bit of drama in the college football world with many voicing their disagreements about some of Feldman’s selections.

It’s certainly a controversial list for many reasons, but the debate is what makes it fun. We’ll have to see which of these coaches rise and fall on Feldman’s list this season.
