Tim Beck & Shawn Watson named as worst football coordinator hires

Recommended Posts

4 best college football coordinator hires of 2017 (and the 5 worst)


Shawn Watson (17), Pittsburgh. Watson did not inherit an easy situation, with running back James Conner and quarterback Nathan Peterman graduating. But still, post-Matt Canada drop-off has been pronounced. Scoring is down 16 points per game, and overall offensive production is on pace for its lowest levels since 2011 — and that’s with the Atlantic Coast Conference’s No. 1 (Virginia Tech) and No. 3 (Miami) scoring defenses left on the schedule.

Tim Beck (18), Texas. Beck was pushed out at Ohio State after the Buckeyes’ passing game ground to a halt in 2016 and rejoined former colleague Tom Herman in Austin. Results have not been great. The only Big 12 team with a lower pass-efficiency rating or averaging fewer yards per play than the Longhorns is Kansas, which only marginally counts as a conference colleague. Texas has averaged 3.2 yards or fewer per running play in six of 10 games this season, and the passing attack hasn’t been productive enough to pick up that slack.
