SEC coach rankings 2022: Brian Kelly makes strong debut, Kirby Smart ticks up after national title win

CBS Sports Graphic

Legendary former Florida and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier called July “talkin’ season,” and now it’s time to talk about coaching acumen as the 2022 season approaches. The SEC is loaded with top-tier coaches, including the greatest coach of all time in Alabama’s Nick Saban and the reigning national champion Kirby Smart of Georgia. Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher also has a national title to his name and first-year LSU coach Brian Kelly led Notre Dame to the meaningful postseason three times during his tenure with the Fighting Irish. 

There is also plenty of intrigue elsewhere surrounding coaches across the league. Lane Kiffin led Ole Miss to the Sugar Bowl last year, Auburn nearly fired Bryan Harsin after one year and Florida nabbed Billy Napier from Louisiana after firing Dan Mullen. 

So how do the SEC coaches stack up against each other? Here are the current rankings as were voted on earlier in the offseason by the CBS Sports staff.
