List of Louisiana–Monroe Warhawks head football coaches
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.
