On the hot seat: Dodge, Sherman

May, 26, 2010
ESPN College Football Insider Bruce Feldman has put together a top 10 list of college football coaches on the hot seat entering the 2010 season. Appearing on the list are North Texas coach Todd Dodge (No. 4) and Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman (No. 10).

Feldman's comments on the two:
4. Todd Dodge, North Texas Mean Green: With the success he had in high school, many observers thought this would've turned out much, much differently. Instead, UNT -- a program that was very respectable a decade ago -- is now among the worst at the FBS level. UNT is 5-31 in Dodge's tenure. Without a big turnaround, it doesn't seem likely that he gets to coach them again in 2011.

10. Mike Sherman, Texas A&M Aggies: The Aggies are an interesting team right now. They have some outstanding talent in a lot of places. People saw how dangerous they could be when they went toe-to-toe with Texas last Thanksgiving. The Aggies are pretty close to becoming relevant again. Sherman's hire of former Air Force D-coordinator Tim DeRuyter is pivotal. Expectations are building. They have a legit shot to open 4-0 before Arkansas visits. I think Sherman's team will respond well this year and get him off the hot seat, but with a 10-15 career mark, it's iffy right now.
