Yesterday the NCAA released single-year Academic Progress Rates for Division I head coaches. You probably saw a story this morning about it in your local paper (or its corresponding website) touting your team's success or lack therof in these rankings.
According to the NCAA, the APR is a team-centered metric set on an average of student athlete's academic performance. The criteria was established six years ago by the Committee on Academic Performance "to increase transparency and accountability of coaches." Which is all well and good but good luck trying to figure out how they calculate the damned thing.
Still, since it is uniform across the association, I thought it might be an interesting yardstick to measure each SEC coaches' performance last year against each other as well as the national average of 944 & the SEC average of 955.
Below you will find a graphs and table that includes each SEC coach from 2009. I also included Derek Dooley's rating from La. Tech but it seems the database doesn't include assistants, so numbers for Kentucky's Joker Phillips and Vanderbilt's Robbie Caldwell were not available.
