5. Tracy Claeys

This list has to included Claeys, Kill’s long-time defensive coordinator. The Gophers have a tough stretch of games coming, starting Saturday night against Michigan, so wins and losses may not be the best indicator of how Claeys is doing as head coach.

In the interest of continuity, at least in terms of next year’s recruiting class, Claeys may have the interim tag removed from his title at some point.
