The removal of Clay Helton as head coach of the USC Trojans has re-opened one of the top coaching jobs in the sport of college football.

The Athletic has polled 100 coaches and administrators through college football on which head coaching job is the best in the sport.

Nine total schools received first-place votes for the top head coaching job in college football. Alabama came in at No. 1, while Ohio State Buckeyes slotted in at 2.

Here’s an excerpt from The Athletic’s story about the Buckeyes’ placement:

The Buckeyes have won four consecutive conference titles. The last three permanent head coaches of the Buckeyes have been responsible for winning a National Championship or appearing in a National Championship game. The Buckeyes have won a total of 41 conference titles in program history.

Ohio State hosts Tulsa in Week 3. Kick off is at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
