Percentage Rises Among Top College Coaches Under Fire or Recently Unemployed

By Mel Greenberg

With the reported news of Vanderbilt's veteran women's basketball coach Melanie Balcomb ousted for reasons to be or not be made public, a large number of coaches on the all-time and active list of appearances in The Associated Press women's poll exists who have recently left jobs or have been under fire in recent seasons, particularly criticized by local media or fan base or under some sort of review either by the NCAA or internally at their current school..

These are just notes added off the news onto the running rankings of coaches in the poll kept by the Guru. The asterisks in the first group are for those coaches no longer active in collegiate ball, some of whom are deceased but not noted that way or happily retired but only seven of the first 30 have no negativity attached.

The list contains schools that they got rankings with footnotes for their current schools.

The active list follows underneath the all-time list with a cut at tied for No. 29 because of a big gap for the next coach to move up.

The list will be refined over the summer as to the one kept in the event some of the departed coaches land elsewhere in head coach Division I jobs.

These are only highlighted number of appearances in the two categories since many more on the entire all-time list have moved on in the 40-year history of the poll. The bold face on a ranking numnber accents those coaches who have been in the news or on the carousel.
