Ranking the nation's top major college basketball coaches


Athlon Sports ranked each coach in the ACC, Atlantic 10, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC along with the top 20 coaches from outside those seven conferences.

The rankings presented a difficult task. The job of a college coach is multi-faceted. The best coaches in college basketball excel in a handful of areas -- recruiting, talent development, teaching and preparation, game-day tactics and motivation. The best coaches tend to be well-rounded, able to do handle all with equal skill.

Those were the factors we weighed in our conference-by-conference rankings, and that continues in our national rankings. We also examined each coach’s success in the regular season and the postseason. In many cases, we took into account what the coach has done with his current program in addition to previous stops in his career.

Ranking the nation's top midmajor college basketball coaches


In the last two weeks, Athlon Sports has ranked every coach in the seven powerful basketball conferences -- the ACC, Atlantic 10, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC.

Certainly, those leagues do not corner the market on great college basketball coaches. In particular, non-Pac-12 Western programs have enjoyed some of the best eras in their programs’ histories in the last few years. Therefore, it’s no surprise coaches like Mark Few, Randy Bennett, Dave Rose and Steve Fisher are prominently featured here.

Here are the best of the best from the conferences we have not featured yet -- the West Coast, the Mountain West, the Ohio Valley, the Missouri Valley and more.

Personally I think Bo Ryan is better than a handful of the "silver spooners" ranked ahead of him, but I'll take the top 10.

Roy Williams was born on 3rd base and everyone acts like he hit a triple.

The only other thing I'm really qualified to give an opinion on is that Buzz Williams is better than Tom Crean. Crean is a bit of a joke, honestly.

Coach K has shown no reason to be number 2. His program hasnt fallen off, his recruiting is still good despite more recent one and dones. He hasn't resorted to Calipari "launch pad" usage of the one and done, and builds a better program with no hint of violations. Then he literally more than doubles Izzo's total wins.

Jimmy Boeheim is absurd at 5 if it's Cal, and Self ahead of him.
