Cool Off The Hot Seat

Escape the hot seat (less than 30% security) to keep your job for next Season (Coach Contracts on)

Start a new dynasty and choose a mediocre team. Schedule as many of the top ranked teams. Sim through to the end of the season and you should have a losing record and have less than 30% security. Play through the off season and you should be able to keep your job.

An alternate method is to start off by choosing Texas and become the head coach. Go to roster and edit everyone over 80 overall. Lower the first 5 options to 0 and then save. Continue that until all players over 80 overall change to 40 overall. Now go to your depth chart and make everyone that is now 40 overall a starting position. If you get to a position with no one that is 40 overall, just skip that position. It shouldn't matter if some positions have decent overall players. The positions that are most important to have starters at 40 overall are QB, HB, and WR. Now simulate to the start of the season. After that simulate to conference championship week. You most likely will be 0-12 at the end of the conference championship week. You will not qualify for any bowls, so just simulate to the end of the season. The achievement will unlock after the season ends.

Select Texas as your team for dynasty; they have a 6 star rating with a B plus team. You will most likely fall below .500 and fail most of your coaching goals. Sim your first year and the achievement should pop up.

**Easiest Method**
1. You have to use teambuilder so if you don't have any more slots (you start with 12 for free) then I apologize.
2. Search my gamertag: Smack rL
3. Download "Really Bad Team." lol
4. Start a new dynasty
5. Customize the SEC by adding Really Bad Team for Ole Miss, then change Arkansas and Mississippi State for better teams.
6. Put the difficulty on Heisman (not sure if this effects simulation but its what I did)
7. Edit your schedule to play the toughest teams possible.
8. Simulate the season and do a happy dance when the cheevo pops :)
9. Send Smack rL a message on xbl with "

#4 is a very easy way to get it. Use Texas and put them in the SEC West. Take all of the crap teams out of the SEC, and replace them with good ones. Turn auto recruiting off. I got it with 18%.

#9 is the easiest if you have teambuilder slots left

Got this achievement last night!! Choose Texas as your team and before you sim the whole season go to "Edit Roster" and change your ratings for the QB, two HB, and three WR to have "0" on their 1st 5 options (speed, agility, etc..). Then go to "Depth Chart" and make sure you start those guys(who are now "40" overall). Sim through to the end of the season and you should get the achievement.

I went 2-10 and still got the achievement. Thanks to "Toy Story 3" for this achievement.

I tried the first method of simming the regular Texas schedule and went 10-2, wtf? Guess I'll try the sec one

Just do exactly as ehonda and mknode said.. if your not confident enough that youll ose every game, simply go to your depth chart before the season starts and put a 40 overall payer at QB and HB and youll lose every game.

#13 Worked For Me. Went 1-11 On The Season, And Got The Achievement.

Here's what I did

1. Swapped Texas and Old Miss
2. Redshirted every position starting at the top working down until I couldn't redshirt anyone any more
3. Simmed season went 0-12
Achievement popped after simming to the off season. After regular season I was at 52%. I was confused, then went to post season and fell to 28%

I tried another method with Texas.

before the start of the year go independent.

Schedule as difficult of a schedule as possible and all AWAY games. I had Bama, OkSt. Oklahoma, Baylor, BYU, Notre Dame, Auburn, Mississippi St, Texas AM, and some games I can't remember. Next don't recruit anybody during the season. make sure you have all CPU recruiting assistance OFF. then just put a WR at QB, QB at WR, FB at RB. Sim to the end of the season. Don't worry if after the regular season you don't have it yet. I had 42% with an 0-12 record. Sim the bowls and it should pop up. I finished with a 21%.
