CFB Coach Match (Pac-12 Part 2): Guess the Favorite Musician of Lincoln Riley, Chip Kelly & More
Matt Roembke/Action Network.
While this is the final season for the Pac-12 before the schools head to different leagues, this also sadly is our last Coach Match with the current makeup of Pac-12 coaches.
Action Network contacted each of the 133 FBS head coaches and asked the following question: Who is your favorite musical artist or group? Each coach was able to provide only one answer.
Wednesday's Pac-12 Hint
Today, we finish with the Pac-12: Stanford’s Troy Taylor, UCLA’s Chip Kelly, USC’s Lincoln Riley, Utah’s Kyle Whittingham, Washington’s Kalen DeBoer and Washington State’s Jake Dickert.
Our first hint: If you played Coach Match on Tuesday (and shame on you if you didn’t), you’ll know who Oregon’s Dan Lanning chose as his favorite artist. It just happens former Oregon/current UCLA coach Chip Kelly also picked the same artist.
A few more hints: Kyle Whittingham’s favorite artist is the same as Alabama’s Nick Saban (SEC coaches will be revealed Aug. 25 and 26). Also, none of the six Pac-12 coaches today picked the same artist.

Coach Match Instructions
To guess, click the music artist you think matches each coach from left to right. Some coaches might have the same answer, so you can pick the same artist for multiple coaches. When you have selected an artist for each coach, hit submit. A green box means that artist is correct, a yellow box means that artist was selected by another coach and a gray box means no coach picked this artist.
After completion of Coach Match, click the "share on Twitter" button. One individual daily will be randomly selected for some free Action Network gear if (a) you tweeted your response and (b) you are following @ActionNetworkHQ and @Brett_McMurphy on Twitter.
For each day’s Coach Match, I will provide a hint to hopefully make it a little easier to solve. We will post a new Coach Match daily at 9 a.m. ET, so check back every day.
