Idaho football coach Robb Akey is among the bottom 10 Football Bowl Subdivision coaches in the country for job security, according to CBSSports.com's Dennis Dodd's 2012 Coach Hot Seat Ratings.
Akey's 2012 rating is a 4.0 on Dodd's scale from 0 to 5 with five being the hot seat.
Just two coaches — Tennessee's Derek Dooley and Arkansas' John L. Smith — received a 5.0, which means "Hot Seat! Win or be fired."
Akey is one of eight coaches to receive a 4.0 or 4.5, which means "warm seat, better start winning." Akey is 19-43 in four seasons with Idaho.
Boise State's Chris Petersen is one of 15 coaches to get the lowest possible mark – 0.0, which means "can't be touched."
The other coaches with 0.0: Air Force's Troy Calhoun, Alabama's Nick Saban, Arkansas State's Guz Malzhan, Florida International's Mario Cristobal, Iowa State's Paul Rhoads, Louisiana-Lafayette's Mark Hudspeth, Michigan's Brady Hoke, Michigan State's Mark Dantonio, Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy, South Alabama's Joey Jones, Stanford's David Shaw, TCU's Gary Patterson, Washington State's Mike Leach and Wisconsin's Bret Bielema.
Petersen is 73-6 in six seasons at Boise State.
Who else should be on that list? Or which coaches should not be on it?
Idaho cancels football camp
Idaho has canceled its summer high school football camp. The camps have become a huge recruiting tool for many schools. Idaho is still sponsoring its junior football camps for younger players.
A high school player told me the camp was canceled because of a lack of interest. Idaho officials, including Akey, have not returned messages about why the camp was canceled.
