As we count down 50 days until the start of the 2014 college football season, ESPN Insider Travis Haney is answering at least one big question a day until South Carolina and Texas A&M’s kickoff on Aug. 28.
Heisman contenders, breakout freshmen, conference winners –- it will all be covered as part of Insider’s Ultimate Season Preview.
Today’s question: Who will be the next great head coach in college football?
There are some really strong coordinators who will one day make successful head coaches. The list includes Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart, Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris, Michigan State DC Pat Narduzzi, Georgia DC Jeremy Pruitt, Arizona State deputy head coach/OC Mike Norvell and Texas A&M OC Jake Spavital.
Picking just one is really difficult. But the assistant I hear most about is Tom Herman -- the offensive coordinator at Ohio State.
