The Most In-Demand Coaches After This Season

From Athlon Sports:

Herman is a genius. Literally. The Ohio native is a member of MENSA – the national high-IQ society – and directs one of the top offenses in college football. The Buckeyes led the Big Ten in scoring offense last season, averaging 37.2 points a game. In 2013, Ohio State has been even better, averaging 46.8 points per contest and averaging 492.8 yards per game. Prior to joining coach Urban Meyer’s staff at Ohio State, Herman worked as an assistant at Sam Houston State and was the offensive coordinator at Texas State, Rice and Iowa State. In 2008, the Owls averaged 41.3 points a game and ranked fifth nationally in passing offense.

Others named: Boise State's Chris Petersen, TCU's Gary Patterson, Baylor's Art Briles, Vanderbilt's James Franklin, BGSU's Dave Clawsen, Ball State's Pete Lembo. Here's to hoping Tom Herman lands at a program that doesn't belong to the B1G.
