Ten Best 2015 NCAA Football Coaches

Written by TZ McD at Gunaxin

A few years ago, college football head coaching positions were much easier to hold on to. That does not mean that coaching was easier, just keeping your job. Joe Paterno spent 46 years as the Head Coach at Penn State. Bobby Bowden turned Florida State into a national powerhouse during his 34 years as their Head Coach. Frank Howard, Clemson, and Dan McGugin, Vanderbilt, both spent 30 years at their respective schools too. Frank Beamer is one of the few remaining active head coaches in the NCAA that understands the meaning of job security. He has spent 29 seasons with the Hokies and will retire at the end of 2015.

There are many factors that explain why a head coach in 2015 has very bad odds to remain with one team over a long period of time but the most important is social media. Millions of people use social media as a canvas for judging others, especially college football coaches. Any mistake you make is posted on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, and any other social media site they are on. It is like having a magnifying glass on you 24/7. Les Miles once ate a couple blades of grass and still answers questions about it.

So when it comes to being named one of College Football’s Ten Best Head Coaches for the 2015 season, it’s a huge deal. These men work very hard to win games and bring the fans a National Title. They deserve a little positive recognition. This list is more than just wins and rankings, we considered how much of an improvement they made since 2014 and the level of talent they have to work with. By looking at it this way, we can find the undisputed ten best head coaches in college football. Enjoy.

Marlins Considering Bringing in Barry Bonds as Hitting Coach

Written by Liam McGuire at The Comeback

Barry Bonds may be coming back to the MLB.

The Miami Marlins are reportedly considering bringing in all-time MLB home run leader as their hitting coach reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

As Heyman notes, the Marlins have been discussing a move for weeks.

Team higherups have quietly been discussing this possibility for weeks.

Bonds, known as a brilliant tactician, has worked as a special spring instructor for the Giants on occasion. It isn’t known whether he’s willing to move across the country for such a hitting coach job, but he has been working on brandishing his image and has a keen love of coaching.

Frank Menechino is expected back, but the Marlins would have two hitting coaches to accommodate Bonds.

Bonds, of course, has an asterisk beside his records due to his involvement with PEDs. Nonetheless, he’s a solid candidate for the position. Bonds has a career .444 OBP and knows a thing or two about hitting-  even if his achievements are largely tainted.
