Before I update the CFBMatrix with the 2011 net coaching effect numbers, I wanted to give readers a review of the coaching effect numbers prior to the start of the ’11 season. While very simple and easy to understand in it’s calculation, the CFBMatrix game effect stats have been remarkably effective in identifying coaching ability.
Two teams with top 10 positive net game effect coaches lost their head coaches while 3 of the top 4 worst game effect coaches with over 2 years experience were fired. The 2011 Matrix Coach of the Year came from the top 10 ranked coaches (8 of 10 had + game effects in 2011). The Charlie Weis Anti-Coach of the Year was a bit of surprise. The 2011 stats will be added in and posted soon but refresh yourself on the numbers clicking here.
