With 100 Days Until College Football Season, A List of All of the Head Coaches With 100 Wins

There are now exactly 100 days until the first games of the 2018 college football season kickoff.  What better way to celebrate that than to countdown all of the college head football coaches who have 100 or more wins?  Now, to clarify only active coaches are counted and only wins at FBS schools are counted.

So for example, Brian Kelly’s wins at Grand Valley State are not counted, Jim Harbaugh’s wins at San Diego would not be counted (not that he’s even close to 100 wins) and Paul Johnson’s wins at Georgia Southern are not counted (they did not become an FBS member until 2014, long after Johnson had left).  Coaches will be ranked going from the fewest wins to the most wins.  Here we go.
