Some men become icons -- other become scapegoats. How much do you remember about college football's best and worst coaches? Find out by taking this quiz!
In his 25-year career as coach of Alabama, Bryant won a ridiculous six national titles. He also won 13 conference championships.
Spurrier was head coach for three teams, including Duke, South Carolina and Florida. He won 228 games in 26 seasons.
Blake had never even been a coordinator, much less a head coach. He had the worst three-season stretch ever in school history, with a record of 12-22.
Devaney's .806 winning percentage made him one of football's winningest coaches. His two championship teams went 24-0-1.
Leahy's Notre Dame squads were dominant in the 1940s. He helped to develop four Heisman winners.
Rockne helped to develop the concept of the forward pass. He also brought Notre Dame into football relevance, with three national titles.
Rockne died in a plane crash (with seven others) when the plane's wing fell apart in midflight. His death triggered a period of mourning across the country.
His extraordinary recruiting skills didn't translate into head coaching success. Porter went 3-21 in two years as head coach.
Parseghian lost only 17 games in 11 years. Seven of his teams finished the season in the AP top five.
Schembechler was head coach at Miami of Ohio (his alma mater) from 1963-68. As Michigan's coach, he won or shared 13 Big Ten championships.
Saban became coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2005. Saban's second team there finished 6-10. He later became head coach of Alabama.
Alabama beat Colorado in the Independence Bowl, going 7-6. The following year, Saban's team went 12-2, and he won Coach of the Year honors.
Royal had one of the best runs in football history. He won three national titles in 20 seasons with Texas.
Turner Gill was considered a hot hire when he took over the job, but he won just five games in two years and his teams were often humiliated.
Johnson's single season with Southern Miss was a disaster. He won zero games and lost 12.
Osborne played wide receiver for both San Francisco and Washington. He immediately went into coaching as an unpaid assistant at Nebraska in 1964 and eventually became one of the game's most revered leaders.
That's right, for 71 futile quarters, no team scored on Tennessee. Neyland was also a brigadier general and served in the Army during wartime.
Rodriguez's first team went 3-9. It was Michigan's worst season in nearly half a century, and Rodriguez never found real success.
Pittsburgh won titles in 1915, 1916 and 1918. Warner also led Stanford to a title in 1926.
Warner coached baseball at Cornell, the same place that he served as head football coach for several years.
McKay won four titles in 16 years as coach of USC. He won 127 games and lost only 40, with eight ties.
McKay became the coach in Tampa Bay, a rather hapless expansion team. But under McKay's direction, the Bucs made the playoffs three times, including a trip to the 1979 NFC Championship game.
He was fired four games into his third season, meaning he won only six games total.
Nebraska's 5-6 season in 2004 meant the team missed going to a bowl game for the first time in 35 years.
Only three coaches have accomplished this feat. They are Pop Warner, Nick Saban and Urban Meyer.
Schnellenberger was only coach for one year, and his record was just 5-5-1, leading to his dismissal.
Locksley was head coach at New Mexico in 2009. He proceeded to go 2-26 and then lost his job in 2011.
Meyer won two national titles, in the 2006 and 2008 seasons. He's also won a title as coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes.
DuBose compiled a record of 24-23, but more notable was the record of NCAA violations he left in his wake.
Walden was head coach at Washington State and Iowa State, and his career record was 72-109-7, and he never managed to win a bowl game.
