College Football Today
In a settlement with Penn State, the NCAA announced Friday that it has restored 111 wins to the football program and the lasting legacy of the university’s legendary football coach Joe Paterno is deservedly on the uptick.
Those wins were vacated following the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal and now give the late Paterno the most ever in college football history for the second time.
Paterno was an icon for not only the Nittany Lions and their fans, but all of college football. Here’s how the rest of the Top Ten Winningest College Football Coaches shakes out.
1. Joe Paterno 409
2. Bobby Bowden 357 (adjusted to 346 by NCAA)
3. Bear Bryant 323
4. Pop Warner 311
5. Amos Alonzo Stagg 275
6. LaVell Edwards 257
7. Tom Osborne 255
8. Lou Holtz 249
9. Mack Brown 238
10. Bo Schembechler 234
