24. Hubert Davis, North Carolina
Another entrant with just one year of head coaching experience. This list would not be complete without the inclusion of Hubert Davis, who in his first year with North Carolina led the Tar Heels to the National Championship game — and was just a a handful of plays from capturing the championship instead of the Jayhawks. Of course, the Tar Heels came up short — fumbling a sizable lead in the process — but their run through the NCAA’s was mightily impressive. Davis took over for three-time NCAA champion Roy Williams. Safe to say, Davis’ coaching acumen has made the transition a seamless one.
