A lot of surprises and omissions. I am surprised more SEC, USC, UCLA, and texas coaches didn’t make it. How is Bobby Ross on there and Mack Brown isn’t?
The inclusion of Ross, at least at the point he was placed, was surprising to me. You are obviously more familiar with more coaches than I am to have come to the conclusion you stated.

Ross is “ penalized” for being average at the 3 “powerhouse” programs of Maryland, Tech and Army.The inclusion of Ross, at least at the point he was placed, was surprising to me.

I think failed SEC coaches like Derek Dooley, Jim McElwain, Butch Jones, all the Bama coaches between Saban and stallings, etc should be on that list before Coach Ross and others who have won national titles. To me a coach who won a national title at a non-factory school deserves a ton of credit.The inclusion of Ross, at least at the point he was placed, was surprising to me.

Interesting. There were a lot of coaches on that list with winning records of .600 or so including the Reverend. I don't think Tuberville should have been on the list either. Paul Dietzel did something a lot of very good coaches never did, he won a national title. Charlie McClendon should not be on that list. His LSU teams were always pretty good and he had to face Johnny Vaught at Ole Miss and Bear Bryant when they were really good. As for Tuberville, he beat Alabama six times. Anyone done that lately? Lovie Smith may have had the lowest winning percentage of any coach on that list. Zook was a terrible game day coach at Florida but he beat UGA two years out of three. As for Lane Kiffin, there is no doubt he can coach offense but he has an awful lot of baggage. When he was at Alabama, he was a successful offensive coordinator and helped bring the Tide out of the dark ages but man, Saban could not stand him I saw a photo once of Kiffin whispering into the ear of the Tide quarterback and a few feet away Saban is staring at him with a look that can only be described as pure malevolence.
Charlie was good for the local economy. When he was at Florida as the offensive coordinator, he kept a half dozen food places in business. Besides he had what he called a "schematic advantage" when he was coaching at Notre Dame. Plus, he would make a big deal on TV of holding his ring hand just so that the camera was sure to catch his Super Bowl ring. I would consider him way overrated.I don’t think the author understands what “overrated” means. Is anyone mistaking Charlie Weis for a good football coach? And I don’t think you can call anyone that managed to win Tech a natty overrated. If anyone is overrated, I’d say it’s Dabo. He was given a lot of resources for staff and recruiting at Clemson that he wouldn’t have gotten elsewhere. Put him at UCLA or Minnesota, and he probably gets fired after 3 years of lackluster results.
Going through some of those names brought back memories: Ron Zook is famous for being the first coach to have a "fireronzook.com" website devoted to him on the FIRST day he was hired. Poor Mike Locksley had the absolute lowest winning record percentage at an unheard of .130. I would feel sorry for him but I am sure he was well paid by Maryland. The coaches with the highest winning percentages on the list were: the Rev at .728 at Miami and UGA. Bo Pelini at .713 at Nebraska and he won 4 Big 12 titles. and RC Slocum at Texas A&M at .721. The only ones with a national title to their credit, I think, were Bobby Ross at Tech, Paul Dietzel at LSU and Gene Citzick at Auburn. I don't think anyone who won a national title should be on the list and certainly coaches that win at a .700 clip should not be although I will admit that Pelini was his own worst enemy with his lack of social graces and a big mouth.
Do you think Harbaugh should be on this list? Charlie McClendon is still the winningest coach in LSU history. RC Slocum should never have been fired with a winning percentage of .721 he was the second highest on the list after the Rev. who in my opinion was unfairly singled out because he could not win a national championship. He did win several SEC championships and a ACC title.Ok, including Ross was pretty bad. But … this clowns also included R. C. Slocum and Charlie McClendon. The Aggies have been regretting getting rid of R. C. ever since they, in a fit of pique, decided to fire him. McClendon was only the winningest coach in LSU history. And these two are only the tip of the iceberg.
Oth, the top 15 or so were consistently overrated. And, btw, Paul Dietzel should be in the top 20, national championship or not.
Amazing how many ex-Nebraska coaches were in this list. I do believe Kiffin is very overrated, not as a play caller, but as a HC.
