Being an SEC Football coach is great until it's not for some 2024 coaches

To an extent, once a honeymoon is over, almost all SEC football head coaches can suddenly be in hot seat status. Check out the hottest seats for the 2024 season.
2 of 3
  • No. 58 Sam Pittman - Arkansas - Pittman's seat is definitely hot. In his fourth season leading the Razorbacks, the Hogs slumped to 4-8. He is loved in Fayettevile, so seven wins might gain him a 2025 season. With one of the SEC's toughest schedules. it is hard to see Arkansas getting to six wins.
  • No. 47 Billy Napier - Florida - Whatever pass Napier got from the mess he inherited from Dan Mullen is long gone. A record of 11-14 in two seasons will not cut it in Gainesville. The 2024 schedule is brutal. The Gators may not reach five wins and it will likely take six or seven for Napier to survive. Georgia, Texas, Ole Miss, and FSU are all capable of embarrassing beatdowns of the Gators. If those four games are blowouts seven wins may not be enough for Napier.
  • No. 46 Shane Beamer - South Carolina - 'Beamer Ball' must rebound from a 5-7 season (20-18 over three seasons). Also facing a tough SEC schedule, six wins may be the ceiling for the Gamecocks. Seven wins would give Beamer a fifth season in Columbia. Six wins might not.
  • No. 34 Brent Venables - Oklahoma - Venables seat was hot after his first season in Norman produced a 6-7 record. He bounced back strongly getting the Sooners to 10-3 last season. Whatever direction Oklahoma takes in 2024, Venables should be secure into the 2025 season.
