    I think you can add Jackie Sherrill and Johnny Majors to that list. That's quite a list.

    Wasn't Pop Warner the head coach back in the late 1800's? Pretty sure he won 4 of them.

    I looked around on this a little more. It doesn't look like Sherrill ever won one as HC. He was 11-1 three consecutive years from 1979-1981, but the AP national champions those years were Alabama (12-0), Georgia (12-0), and Clemson (12-0).

    John Cooper finished 10-1-1 at Arizona State (AP #4) and 11-1 twice (AP #2) at tOSU

    Looks like George Haffner was an OC at ISU under Majors and was the OC on Vince Dooley's 1980 Georgia team that won a national title.
