Any time a school goes from having an established head coach to hiring an unproven assistant coach, it takes a huge gamble. That’s pretty much the trend among schools with the five worst hires of the 2015 season. Hiring an assistant coach is always a crapshoot.

Georgia Southern went from having one of the best head coaches in America that no one knew about (new Tulane head coach Willie Fritz), to a huge question mark in Colorado State defensive coordinator Tyson Summers. Giving up 31 points to that noted powerhouse, the University of Texas (San Antonio) should have been a huge red flag.
