Mailbag: More on program's best coaches

By David Ubben

Sometimes, e-mails from you all deserve their own posts.

This is one of those e-mails. We took a look at what each program in the Big 12 would look like without the program's winningest coach this week, but Cal in Chelsea, Okla. was left clamoring for more. He writes:
Expanding on your Programs Without Winningest Coaches article, I think it would be great to see the winning percentages of each team vs. the winning percentages of their coach.

Great idea, Cal. We provided the total wins with and without each coach, but how do the win percentages compare? Here's that ranking of which current coaches are above the line currently.

1. Gary Patterson, TCU (+.25)
2. Bill Snyder, Kansas State (+.217)
3. Dana Holgorsen, West Virginia (+.168)
4. Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State (+.16)
5. Bob Stoops, Oklahoma (+.085)
6. Mack Brown, Texas (+.067)
7. Paul Rhoads, Iowa State (+.016)
8. Art Briles, Baylor (+.003)
9. Charlie Weis, Kansas (+.000)
10. Tommy Tuberville, Texas Tech (-.042)

Interesting numbers, and proof that we're in a very good era for the Big 12. Only one coach isn't above the curve for his program? Amazing. What else stuck out to you?
