Every FBS and NFL head coaching job is now full, which means it’s time for me to update the list I shamelessly stole faithfully continued from originator Patrick Stevens for now the fifth annual look at the length of all 130 FBS head coaching tenures.

Before we get to the list, a few notes.

– Obviously, the list grew by two coaches this year. Coastal Carolina officially joins the Sun Belt in 2017, and UAB re-joins Conference USA. The list will fall back to 129 next year when Idaho leaves to join the Big Sky in 2018.

– UAB head coach Bill Clark is near the midpoint of the list, No. 68, with only 12 games under his belt. Paul Chryst, who sits 10 spots below Clark at No. 78, has coached 27 games at Wisconsin.

– The median hire date for FBS head coaches is Jan. 11, 2014, the date James Franklin was hired at Penn State.

– Kentucky’s Mark Stoops, the line-leader for the Class of 2013, the freshest hiring class when this project began four years ago, is now No. 40 on this list.

– Franklin represents the midway point of FBS coaching stability, while Kirby Smart, Will Muschamp and Chris Ash are the quarter pole. Those three have been on the job longer than a quarter of their peers, and they were hired Dec. 6-7, 2015.

– The Power 5/Group of 5 split in FBS is roughly 50-50, yet 13 of the 20 longest-tenured FBS head coaches hail from Power 5 schools. At the Group of 5 level it’s often Move Up or Move On.
