List of current NCAA Division I FBS football coaches

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 2017, following the retirement of Bob Stoops at Oklahoma (who had been in that position since December 1, 1999), 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. Three other coaches hired after 2000 had a previous head coaching stint at their current school.

NotesEdit

  1. ^ This is Edsall's second stint as head coach at Connecticut. He had previously been head coach from 2000 to 2010.
  2. ^ While 2017 was 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.
  3. ^ This is Petrino's second stint as head coach at Louisville. He had previously been head coach from 2003 to 2006.
  4. ^ This is Snyder's second stint as head coach at Kansas State. He had previously been head coach from 1989 to 2005.
  5. ^ 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.
  6. ^ This is Whipple's second stint as head coach at UMass. He had previously been head coach from 1998 to 2003.
