Welcome to CBS Sports' annual Hot Seat Rankings where buyouts meet speculation, job security meets job openings and normal everyday furniture gets torched. Sometimes, the process isn't pretty, but it is a part of the game.

This offseason, 24 programs changed coaches. That makes 54 in the last two years and 96 across the last four seasons. There will be more — as always.

That's not wishing bad on anyone, but consider the hit rate of these annual preseason Hot Seat Rankings. Since 2016, 43 names have appeared on this list rated either 4s (start improving now) or 5s (win or be fired). Thirty of those (69.8%) have been fired or resigned under pressure. The hit rate for Power Five coaches is nearly identical (18 of 26, 69.2%).

Last year alone, seven of the eight coaches who appeared on this list were let go. That included Scott Frost (Nebraska), Herm Edwards (Arizona State), Bryan Harsin (Auburn), Geoff Collins (Georgia Tech), Willie Taggart (FAU), Jake Spavital (Texas State) and Marcus Arroyo (UNLV).
