How Likely is Bielema to Be Fired?

If you look the Pig Trail Nation's Facebook page, you'll likely see comments like these:

ESPN.com examined different data points and came up with how likely different coaches around the NCAA-Football Bowl Subdivision are to be fired. Some of the data points include the difference between a program's strength prior to a coach's arrival and its current strength, a team's presence in the rankings, championships, ther milestones, and more. The rankings don't account for length of contract remaining, it can't accurately account for fan or booster sentiment.

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema ranks 7th on the list (4th in the SEC) with a 41.7% chance of being fired. In the SEC Bielema trails Tennessee's Butch Jones (57%), Missouri's Barry Odom (45.2%) and Vanderbilt's Derek Mason (41.9%).

Former Arkansas defensive coordinator Paul Haynes tops the list at 92.9% in his 5th year at Kent State.
