Penn State Sanctions Make Eddie Robinson Winningest Coach

Posted: Jul 23, 2012


He's back on top through unexpected circumstances.

This morning, National Collegiate Association of Athletics (NCAA) President Mark Emmert announced that Penn State would face a $60 million fine, a four-year post-season ban, a probational five-year period, the loss of 10 initial scholarships in year one and 20 overall scholarships per year over the following four years, a mandatory adoption of all the things recommended in the Freeh Report and the vacating of all wins from 1998 to 2011.

Current members of the football team are allowed to transfer without penalty or limitation.

With 111 of Joe Paterno's victories gone, former Grambling State University Head Coach Eddie Robinson reclaims his position as the winningest coach in Division I college football history. Paterno now has 298 career victories. Robinson takes back his spot with 408.

Joe Gagliardi, of Saint John's in Minnesota (a Division III school), has the most wins of any college football coach overall with 484. Former Florida State Football Coach Bobby Bowden has the most wins of any Football Bowl Subdivision Program with 377.

Robinson coached at Grambling State for six decades until his retirement in 1997. With an overall record of 408-165-15, his teams weren't only excellent, the school's program was a hotbed of young talent that would eventually find its way into the National Football League (including Super Bowl XXII MVP Doug Williams).

Robinson passed away in 2007 at the age of 88 after a decade-long battle with Alzheimer's Disease.
