Jerry Glanville served as the Vikings' head coach for the 2007, 2008 and 2009 seasons.

Portland State Vikings football under Jerry Glanville encompassed the 2007, 2008 and 2009 NCAA Division I FCS football seasons that Glanville served as the head coach. On February 28, 2007, Glanville was hired as the twelfth head coach in the history of Portland State football.[1][2] He replaced Tim Walsh who resigned as head coach on February 16 to accept the position of offensive coordinator at Army.[3] Prior to his arrival, Glanville had served as defensive coordinator at Hawaii for both the 2005 and 2006 seasons. He had also served as the head coach for both the Houston Oilers (from 1986–1989) and the Atlanta Falcons (from 1990–1993) of the National Football League prior to his arrival at Portland.[1][2]

The Vikings entered the 2007 season with high expectations, but finished with only three wins and eight losses (3–8). Their loss against Weber State was noted for having set Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) records for both the most combined points and points scored by a team in a loss. Looking to improve in 2008, the Vikings only won one additional game to finish with four wins and seven losses (4–7). After finishing the 2009 season with only two wins and nine losses (2–9), Glanville resigned as head coach of the Vikings on November 17.[4] During his three season tenure at Portland State, Glanville compiled an overall record of nine wins and 24 losses (9–24).[5]
