This is a list of college football coaches with 30 seasons.[1][2] Individuals on the list have served as head coach of a college football program for 30 or more seasons to be included on the list.

"College level" is defined as a four-year college or university program in either the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics or the National Collegiate Athletic Association. If the team competed at a time before the official organization of either of the two groups but is generally accepted as a "college football program" it would also be included.[n 1]

Coaches active in the 2014 season are in bold. Current through games played on October 18, 2014.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The list includes coaches with 30 seasons regardless of division.
  2. ^ On July 23, 2012, the NCAA announced that all Penn State victories between the 1998 and 2011 seasons (111 wins) had been vacated due to the loss of institutional control during the Penn State child sex abuse scandal. Paterno was credited with 298 career wins, but on January 16, 2015, the NCAA restored his 111 victories.
  3. ^ 12 wins over the 2006 and 2007 seasons were vacated due to use of ineligible player(s).
