It's an annual tradition among college football fans: Let's argue about which school is a better coaching "job" than another. Usually the debate also involves if a school is a "top-10" coaching stop or not.

After Jimbo Fisher left Florida State for Texas A&M, the Houston Chronicle made a list of what it considers the top 20 college football programs. The move from one successful stop to another is rare, as Fisher became just the fourth coach to have left a school where he won an Associated Press national title, according to the AP. One of the other three is Paul Dietzel, who left LSU for Army in 1961 after leading Tigers to the 1958 championship.

The Chronicle's rankings are based on criteria such as facilities, history, money and recruiting.

LSU checks in at No. 9 in the rankings, one spot beneath Clemson and one spot above Texas A&M.

Alabama is ranked No. 1, and other Southeastern Conference teams include Florida (No. 12), Georgia (No. 13) and Auburn (No. 14).

The Tigers, in their first full season under coach Ed Orgeron, head to their second-consecutive Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day and will face Notre Dame in Orlando.
