Ever wonder where FBS head coaches rank in Twitter followers?

The Tulsa World's Kelly Hines took an interesting look at where FBS coaches rank in Twitter followers recently, and we found the results somewhat intriguing.

Only LSU's Les Miles eclipsed the 100,000 follower mark (105,760), while Brian Kelly (91,402), Butch Jones, (75,300), Mark Richt (65,240), and Bret Bielema (57,958) rounded out the top five.

Hines points out in the original article that there are two high profile names that are missing from the list in Nick Saban and Bob Stoops. Saban doesn't have a Twitter account, and Stoops has a private account that he uses for recruiting. Another 33 coaches "don’t use Twitter or aren’t active enough for their names to pop up in searches" according to Hines' research.

Below is a look at the entire top 15. Click here to see the full listing and the original article.
