List of current NCAA Division I FBS football coaches

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) includes 130 teams. Each team has one head coach.[1] In addition to the head coach, most teams also have at least one offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator;[1] however, the head coach will sometimes assume one of these roles as well. FBS is composed of ten conferences: American Athletic Conference (The American), Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Big 12 Conference, Big Ten Conference, Conference USA (C-USA), Mid-American Conference (MAC), Mountain West Conference (MW), Pac-12 Conference (Pac-12), Southeastern Conference (SEC), and Sun Belt Conference. All FBS schools except seven (Army, BYU, UConn, Liberty, UMass, New Mexico State, & Notre Dame) are members of one of these conferences.

In 2019, Kirk Ferentz of Iowa became the longest-continuous tenured head coach in Division I FBS. Ferentz began his current coaching tenure in 1999 and is also the only FBS head coach who began his current head coaching position before the 2000 season. Two coaches had a previous head coaching stint at their current school: Mack Brown at North Carolina (1988-1997, 2019–present) and Greg Schiano at Rutgers (2001-2011, 2020–present).

Coaches' records updated through week 3 of the 2021 college football season.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ This is Brown's second stint as head coach at North Carolina. He had previously been head coach from 1988 to 1997.
  2. ^ This is Schiano's second stint as head coach at Rutgers. He had previously been head coach from 2001 to 2011.
  3. ^ Clark's first season as head coach was the final season before UAB dropped football. He was still under contract to UAB when the school announced that it would reinstate football (ultimately in 2017), and was retained as head coach for the revived program.
