    3 titles in 4 years.
    4 titles total, with 2 different teams.

    Yeah I think he's above Rockne already, and he's already won as many championships as Paterno and Bowden combined in about 100 less years of coaching.

        You add Nick to the list. Amazing college coach, terrible pro coach.

        He single handily made the SEC the power house it is in the sense of them running the BCS Championship.

            Me

            I'm the best. Haven't lost a game EVER!

            But seriously, I would probably say Saban.

                  I assume this thread only refers to DIA/FBS coaches.

                  Of those, some other names which could be considered:

                  Frank Leahy 107-13-9;

                  Bud Wilkinson 145-29-4;

                  Bo Schembechler 234-65-8;

                  Glenn Warner 336-114-32 compiled at seven different schools over a forty-four year period.

                  As always, terminology is important. What is meant by "best" and "of all time"?

                  How much credit should be given for coaches who were great innovators in the game of football? Warner would need to be at the top of the list in that group since he invented so many things we take for granted in football today.

                  How much of a coaching tree a coach generated is worth considering. Hayden Fry would be near the top of the list in that area.

                  Social impact is something not discussed much lately especially concerning integration in college football. Bear Bryant in the SEC and Hayden Fry in the SWC worked to break the stranglehold of segregation on major college football in the South.

                  Alabama has come a long way from the 1969 Liberty Bowl where some of their fans spit on and shouted racial epithets at African-American members of Colorado's football team.

                    Well because I'm completely bias when it comes to college sports. I think Bo is the greatest coach of all time.

                      Saban is very hard for me to like, but when you look at the product he puts on the field, there's no doubt he's one of the best to ever coach in the college ranks.

                      He's obviously a great recruiter.
                      His teams are always one of the most disciplined teams in football. They execute with excellence.

                        is he even the greatest Michigan coach of all time? had bo won a national title there would be an argument i think.

                          i am surprised nobody has questioned paterno being on my list considering 111 of his wins were stripped. if i was to add saban, i think i would replace paterno with him.

                            With over a hundred teams and no playoff, there is no actual national championship. It has always been polls, sportswriters and a bowl game or two that has been used to manufacture the image of one. The BCS created an exclusive club that did nothing to help the situation.

                            Five weeks of preparation for a football game is ridiculous. That time would be better used in weekly games of a playoff bracket to determine a true national champion.

                              In Michigan? Yes.

                              Bo is like a divine power in Ann Arbor.
