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 six (Army, BYU, Liberty, UMass, New Mexico State, & Notre Dame) are members of one of these conferences.

As of 2018, 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 position before the 2000 season. Two coaches had a previous head coaching stint at their current school that began prior to the 2000 season: Randy Edsall at UConn and Mack Brown at North Carolina.

Coaches' records updated through week 12 of the 2019 college football season.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ This is Edsall's second stint as head coach at UConn. He had previously been head coach from 2000 to 2010.
  2. ^ 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.
