If you went up to anyone and asked them who the best coach in college football is this decade, they might say Nick Saban. They would certainly have a case, but they would probably be wrong. At least, that’s what the numbers would tell us as Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher has actually won more consistently than Saban since he took over in 2010.

He averages 11.14 wins per season according to FSU and that is more than Urban Meyer (11.0), Dabo Swinney (9.89), Nick Saban (9.76) and Bobby Petrino (9.08). And he will face three of those four next year starting with Saban in the new Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta to kick off the 2017 season.

Fisher has brought the Noles to double-digit win season in six of his seasons including the last BCS National Championship in 2013.
