University of Toledo head football coach Gary Pinkel was one of 21 coaches singled out by American Football Monthly as a "hot college coach" in 2000 in the magazine's August issue. American Football Monthly is the official magazine of the American Football Coaches Association.

The article cited Pinkel's record of success in his nine seasons at Toledo, and also mentioned his experience as an assistant at Washington. The article went on to say that by year's end, Pinkel "may have his choice in what job he wants next," telling readers to watch out for Toledo this season.

Pinkel is 63-36-3 in nine years at Toledo. He ranks first in career wins at UT, and sixth overall in Mid-American Conference history.
