What are the requirements to become a college football coach?


Answer by  yowza (20)

College football coaches are required to have some football knowledge. I imagine that they should have a background in education or coaching prior to entering into such a contract. They must also believe that winning isn't everything, it's the only thing.

Usually one would have to have played football in high school, college or professionally. It would help to have a teaching background, working with young adults.

Most Football coaching jobs either go to retired NFL players or former NFL coaches. It is common for colleges to recruit from the NFL or coaches who have already been involved with College football. It is a closed market, meaning they hire from within and very rarely do they take in inexperienced outsiders. Very Rare.

There are no specific requirements, the College just has to pick you. Depending on how big and successful the school is determines that. The bigger school usually will try and find high profile, ex-College or NFL coaches. The smaller schools generally will recruit co-ordinators to be their head coach from successful programs.
