4 Big 12 Coaches On The Hot Seat In 2015

The Big 12 doesn't have many coaches on the hot seat this season. Baylor and TCU won't fire their coach in the near future, while Texas and Kansas will give their new coaches time. Several of the coaches on this list aren't truly on the hot seat, but are in danger of having their fan base grow a bit restless. Here are four Big 12 coaches on the hot seat this season. 

Bob Stoops, Oklahoma

It would take a disaster season for Oklahoma to fire Stoops, and even that might not be enough. However, the Sooners are coming off an 8-5 season. Another effort like that could put Stoops in hot water for next year. 

Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State

Before Oklahoma State defeated Oklahoma and won its bowl game, Gundy was on the hot seat. With those wins, Gundy's earned himself some breathing room. However, a poor start could put Gundy back on the hot seat. Gundy would likely need at least two down seasons for Oklahoma State to fire him. 

Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech

After an 8-5 record in his first season, Kingsbury's Red Raiders slipped to 4-8 last year. Even another 4-8 season shouldn't be enough to doom Kingsbury, but winning more is necessary. In just his third season, Kingsbury should feel safe for at least another year or two. 

Paul Rhoads, Iowa State

The only true hot seat in the Big 12 is at Iowa State. Rhoads has five wins in his last two seasons and has gone 2-16 in Big 12 games. If the Cyclones don't show improvement this season, Rhoads might be on his way out. A bowl game isn't necessary, but at least 4-5 wins are.
