The college football coaching seat has already attracted five Power Five-level coaches this season, with more to come. Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports has released his updated hot seat rankings., and most of those who were in the pre-season rankings did not improve anything for themselves. At the same time, a couple of coaches managed to reduce the pressure. Auburn Brian Hars is not one of them, as he defended his job after losing 21-17 to Auburn in which the team lost a 17-0 lead.

“I mean, this is my job,” Harsin said via Auburn Undercover. “Every day (my job) is to come and make sure that I am ready and that we have prepared this football team. It doesn’t change anything and I told the team about it. … This football team deserved it. They deserve the chance to come back and prepare and be the best football team next week and that’s what we’re going to do.
