Who are the Top 3 FCS Head Coaches?

Kennesaw State Head Coach Brian Bohannon is one of the best FCS Coaches around.

We are just a little over three months away from college football and head coaches are already grinding tape getting ready for the season. While the FCS is filled with talented players, they also have an abundance of talent in head coaches.

Here are the Top 3 FCS Head Coaches that should be on NFL Teams Radars:

1. Matt Entz, Head Coach, North Dakota State University

Matt Entz became the first Division I head football coach to go 16-0 in his first full season. The former North Dakota State Defensive Coordinator has been with the program for six years. The 2019 AFCA FCS National Coach of the Year dominated in his first head coaching position.

He has been an assistant coach for over 20 years and proved he has what it takes to be a head coach. He led the Bisons to a National Championship despite the departure of 24 seniors and with five new assistant coaches.

2. Curt Cignetti, Head Coach, James Madison University

Cignetti was named the program’s eight head coach back in December of 2018. The veteran head coach has been coaching for 37 years and hoists an 81-28 record in nine years as a head coach. Last season he led JMU to a 14-2 record after they were defeated in the championship by NDSU.

Cignetti was with the Alabama Crimson time from 2007 to 2010 where he was the recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach. Before landing at Alabama he was with North Carolina State as the Tight Ends and Quarterbacks coach. He recruited current Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson at the time.

3. Brian Bohannon, Head Coach, Kennesaw State University

Brian Bohannon was introduced as the first head coach of the Kennesaw State University Owls in 2013. The program did not begin playing until 2015 as they were building the start-up football program. In his first 5 seasons with the program, the Owls are 48-15 over that time including a Big South Conference record of 20-7. The program has made the college football playoffs the last seasons, including at one time being ranked No.2 in the nation.

Bohannon was named AFCA FCS National Coach of the Year following the 2017 season after going 12-2 overall losing in the NCAA Division I Quarterfinal. Prior to coming to the Owls, he served as an assistant coach with Navy and Georgia Teach for 11 seasons. The Former University of Georgia Wide Receiver has done wonders for the Owls program and deserves a shot to be hired at the next level.
