As College Football continues to kick into full gear, BetOnline.AG has began releasing some fun odds on the first head coach fired in the Power 5 conferences. In most seasons the odds have been posted for the collegiate level as whole, this year we’re looking at each Power 5 conference individually. The Pac-12 wasn’t included obviously, as of now the conference will be playing an even more abbreviated season than the rest of the Power 5.

Here at Armchair Media, we wanted to take these odds and discuss the coach from each conference that would provide the biggest story line.

There is a team on this list that isn’t an actual member of the ACC, and their coach may absolutely be on the hot seat if they don’t show up for marquee conference matchups this season. We’re looking at your Brian Kelly, and Notre Dame.

With uncertainty of scheduling due to the pandemic, the Fighting Irish were unable to schedule their normal independent sleight of games. Notre Dame was forced to choose between not playing any games at all or joining a Power 5 Conference this season. They chose to go to the ACC.

Brian Kelly’s been in North Bend since 2009. In that time we’ve seen Notre Dame get its fair share of ass kickings in Primetime, Bowl and College Football Playoff Games. Notre Dame showed the ability to rack up a solid regular season record over the past few years, picking up wins on some of middle of the pack teams in the nation.

Where they’ve run into issues is when they get to the part of the schedule where the big boys come to play. May I remind you of the College Football Playoff loss to Clemson, so bad that people wanted them banned from future playoffs?

Guess what folks, in an actual conference Notre Dame has some actual games to played this year. Four games remaining against teams in the top 25 including an Early November meeting with Clemson Tigers.

With that said, a lackluster showing in their lone season in the ACC may finally convince Notre Dame that it is time to move on from the Brian Kelly era of Fighting Irish football.

Brian Kelly at +3330 is an interesting value.

After 83-23 (48-16 Conference) stint at Florida State that included 3 conference titles and a National Championship, Jimbo Fisher headed to College Station to take over the Texas A&M Aggies.

Texas A&M coughed over a 10-Year/$75M contract to Fisher before the 2018 season. Through 2 disappointing seasons in College Station, the Aggies have posted a 17-9 record overall, and a barely over .500 conference record at 9-7.

When Fisher was hired, their was the notion that he would bring the Aggies to prominence in the SEC. Since he’s arrived their has still been a noticeable gap between A&M and teams like Alabama, LSU, Georgia and even Auburn.

Another disappointing season in College Station, may not necessarily put Fisher in the hot seat, but it will make things a little more interesting.

Keep an eye on Jimbo at +1400.

In a conference that features Lovie Smith, there is somehow another coach with more intriguing job security. It is another NFL coach. Oh come on, we all know where i’m going with this one.

Jim Harbaugh, come on down.

Seriously, is there anything in College Football more disappointing than Jim Harbaugh’s tenure in Michigan. This is the guy that was supposed to bring glory back to the Big House. Instead, what has he brought? Disappointment and subtle racism.

In his five seasons at Michigan, the Wolverines have yet to make conference title game, are a pathetic 1-4 in Bowl Games and an even more pathetic 0-5 against bitter rival Ohio State.

Jim Harbaugh has yet to beat Ohio State, I’m sure that’s going over huge among Michigan fans.

Harbaugh +500 was the obvious choice here. The only question mark, does he high tail it back to the NFL before they get a chance to can him?
