CBS Sports ranks Pitt football coach Pat Narduzzi near bottom of P5 list

CBS sports put together a list of all 66 P5 coaches in Division I recently. The site ranked Pitt football head coach Pat Narduzzi near the bottom of the list, mostly because he hasn't coached a game yet. He was slotted 63rd and was officially the lowest-rated coach in the conference.

I'd have taken the approach of ranking any new coaches N/A and leaving them out of the discussion. After all, how can we say for sure that Narduzzi is worse than Virginia's Mike London, who has recruited well but not done much on the field? Or Colorado's coach, Mike MacIntyre, who has won only a single conference game in his two seasons there but still ranks ahead of him?

Ranking coaches that haven't, you know, coached seems sort of counterproductive.

For the record, Nick Saban was No. 1 and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher was the top ACC coach, checking in at No. 7.
