The Louisiana–Monroe Warhawks football program is a college football team that represents the University of Louisiana at Monroe. The team has had 13 head coaches since organized football began in 1951 at Northeast Louisiana with the nickname Indians. The Warhawks have played in more than 629 games during their 59 seasons. No coaches have led the Warhawks to a postseason bowl game. Three coaches have won conference championships with the Warhawks: Pat Collins and Dave Roberts in the Southland Conference and Charlie Weatherbie in the Sun Belt Conference. Collins also won one national championship with the Warhawks when they competed in what is now the Football Championship Subdivision. As of the end of the 2009 season, Collins is the all-time leader in games coached (92), years coached (8), and wins (57), while Roberts is the all-time leader in winning percentage at .661. Bobby Keasler is, in terms of winning percentage, the worst coach the Warhawks have had, with a record of 8-28 (.222) in four seasons.

Of the 13 Warhawks coaches, only one has been inducted in the College Football Hall of Fame, John David Crow, who was inducted as a player. None have received National Coach of the Year honors. The current coach is Todd Berry, who was hired in December 2009.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Although the first Rose Bowl Game was played in 1902, it has been continuously played since the 1916 game, and is recognized as the oldest bowl game by the NCAA. "—" indicates any season prior to 1916 when postseason games were not played.[1]
  2. ^ A running total of the number of head coaches, with coaches who served separate tenures being counted only once. Interim head coaches are represented with "Int" and are not counted in the running total. "—" indicates the team played but either without a coach or no coach is on record. "X" indicates an interim year without play.
  3. ^ Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible in the period since.[2]
  4. ^ When computing the win–loss percentage, a tie counts as half a win and half a loss.[3]
  5. ^ Statistics correct as of the end of the 2012 college football season.
  6. ^ A running total of the number of coaches of the Warhawks. Thus, any coach who has two or more separate terms as head coach is counted only once.
  7. ^ Louisiana-Monroe did not join a conference until 1953 and was an independent from 1971 through 1981 and from 1996 through 2000.
