Ranking the MAC’s Head Football Coaches


Watching the head coaches in the MAC is very similar to watching major league prospects in the minor leagues: Very often, you’re watching them on the up and up.

Over the last decade or so, former MAC head coaches such as Brady Hoke (Ball State), Brian Kelly (Central Michigan), Urban Meyer (Bowling Green), Dave Doeren (Northern Illinois) and Darell Hazell (Kent State) have performed well enough at their schools that they eventually landed jobs at leading BCS conference programs.

So it’s ironic, considering all of that, that our choice for the MAC’s best head football coach is Frank Solich - who took the opposite route, going from being the head coach at Nebraska to turning Ohio into a respectable program.
