Independent Coach Wins Against The Spread

No, the Independents aren’t Group of Five, and there aren’t that many coaches who have a body of work to have a good sample size – Jerry Kill is new at New Mexico State, Jim Mora Jr. is taking over UConn, Marcus Freeman only has one game in at Notre Dame, and Don Brown has been gone from UMass for over a decade.

Sun Belt Coach Wins Against The Spread

With the exception of new head coaches – like Clay Helton at Georgia Southern – the ATS records only count the coach’s time in the Sun Belt with his current team. This year, the new schools count the time in Conference USA. Also, new first time head coaches – Michael Desormeaux at Louisiana, Jon Sumrall at Troy, and in his first year in the FBS, Curt Cignetti at James Madison.
