List of current NCAA Division I FBS football coaches

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

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (I FBS) includes 128 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. Division I 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 the Sun Belt Conference. As of the 2016 season, all FBS schools except four (Army, BYU, UMass, & Notre Dame) are members of one of these conferences.

As of the end of the 2015 season, following the retirement of Frank Beamer at Virginia Tech (who had been in that position since 1987), the longest-tenured head coach in Division I FBS is Kirk Ferentz of Iowa. Ferentz began his current coaching tenure in 1999, and is also the only FBS head coach who began his current head coaching positions before the 2000 season. Three other coaches hired after 2000 have a previous head coaching stint at their current school. Eighteen coaches took head coaching vacancies in the 2015 FBS season, and another 25 coaches have been hired to fill head coaching vacancies for the upcoming 2016 season.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ While 2017 will be Applewhite's first full season at Houston, his first game as Houston head coach was the 2016 Las Vegas Bowl. He was hired when previous Cougars head coach Tom Herman left for the opening at Texas.
  2. ^ This is Petrino's second stint as head coach at Louisville. He had previously been head coach from 2003 to 2006.
  3. ^ This is Snyder's second stint as head coach at Kansas State. He had previously been head coach from 1989 to 2005.
  4. ^ 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.
  5. ^ This is Whipple's second stint as head coach at UMass. He had previously been head coach from 1998 to 2003.
  6. ^ Jones was hired as South Alabama head coach in 2008, but the team did not begin play until 2009, and did not play its first fully competitive season until 2011.
