National Championships

Courtesy of research over at wikipedia, here are the active D-1A coaches who have won a national championship:

Howard Schnellenberger, 1983
Joe Paterno, 1986
Dennis Erickson, 1989 and 1991
Bobby Bowden, 1993 and 1999
Steve Spurrier, 1996
Phil Fulmer, 1998
Bob Stoops, 2000
Nick Saban, 2003
Pete Carroll, 2004
Mack Brown, 2005
Urban Meyer, 2006

Getting to that second one puts you in rare company.

Pete Carroll had two, in 03 (not BCS, but AP. most consider that they "split" the championship with LSU) and 04.

We here at landthieves don't recognize split championships. The only reason Pete C recognizes it is he didn't get the other one. I believe Golf Digest voted Aubrun the National Champ as well, and I didn't put Tommy Tuberville on the list.
