The Pac-12 has introduced three new coaches for 2023 in Deion Sanders (Colorado), Troy Taylor (Stanford), and Kenny Dillingham (Arizona State) to add to a strong depth of head coaches in the league.

Amongst the nine coaches who will return to the Pac-12, who performed the best last season?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I examine the league’s coaches and how they performed for the 2022 season.

I also share why a potential reason Ohio State canceled its home-and-home with Washington is not likely one of the reasons.

As the Pac-12 brings in coaches they hope can bolster recruiting—and some already are—recruiting is only part of the battle.

How much does that matter compared to the Xs and Os those coaches employ on the field to try and win games?
