A ranking of all 125 FBS head coaching tenures
Patrick Stevens of D1scource.com published today a very interesting ranking of the tenure for all 125 FBS head coaches. With 30 of the 125 jobs changing hands over the past year, the study produced some pretty surprising results.
We're not going to post the full list (which can be found here), but here are the top 10 longest-tenured coaches in FBS:
1. Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech - hired Dec. 22, 1986
2. Larry Blakeney, Troy - Dec. 3, 1990
3. Mack Brown, Texas - Dec. 3, 1997
4. Bob Stoops, Oklahoma - Dec. 1, 1998
5. Kirk Ferentz, Iowa - Dec. 2, 1998
6. Gary Pinkel, Missouri - Nov. 30, 2000
7. Gary Patterson, TCU - Dec. 8, 2000
8. Jim Grobe, Wake Forest - Dec. 11, 2000
9. Mark Richt, Georgia - Dec. 26, 2000
10. Mike Riley, Oregon State - Feb. 19, 2003
A few notes...
- Miami (Ohio) head coach Don Treadwell represents the median of this list. He was hired Dec. 31, 2010.
- Nevada head coach Brian Polian, presently in his fourth day on the job, holds only the second-youngest tenure in FBS.
- There are only three coaches left from the hiring class of 2006 - Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald, Michigan State's Mark Dantonio and Air Force's Troy Calhoun.
- There are no coaches left from the hiring classes of 2001 and 2002.
Here are a handful of Stevens' observations...
- Kentucky's Mark Stoops, the first hire of the post-2012 season wave, has been on the job longer than 22.8 percent of his fellow FBS coaches. He was hired Nov. 27.
- West Virginia's Dana Holgorsen, promoted in the summer of 2011, has been on the job in Morgantown longer than 54 other head coaches.
- Kansas State's Bill Snyder ranks 33rd on the tenure list ... and that only counts his second stint with the Wildcats.
- Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald is almost two years shy of his 40th birthday. He still ranks 20th in active tenure at his current gig.
