The Bleacher Report has a story up rating the 11 worst coaching performances in college football during the 21st century.

Four of the 11 are former SEC coaches. Ed Orgeron was No. 5 on the list for his stint at Ole Miss, which saw the Rebels win just 10 of 35 games in three seasons and go 3-21 in SEC play. Alabama's Mike DuBose was No. 6. Alabama's Mike Shula was No. 8 and Florida's Ron Zook was No. 10.

While Orgeron didn't win at Ole Miss and clearly made some major blunders as a head coach, he deserves some credit for setting the table for Houston Nutt. The Rebels are stacked with talent right now, and just about all of those guys were recruited to Oxford by Orgeron, who's now the recruiting coordinator at Tennessee.
