Ranking the Eight Coaches left in the FCS Playoffs by Experience

1. John Stiegelmeier - South Dakota State (24 seasons) No coach in this year’s playoffs has more experience under his belt than South Dakota State’s John Stiegelmeier. Stiegelmeier has been the head man in Brookings for 24 years now and has coached the Jacks to 11 playoff appearances. In those postseason berths, SDSU is 13-10 and has gone as far as the quarterfinals five times. Stiegelmeier coached in his first national championship game last spring where his Jackrabbits came up short against Sam Houston. He, like several others on this list, is still seeking his first title. Stiegelmeier is the all-time winningest coach in SDSU program history with a 184-110 record. Under his coaching, South Dakota State has gone 120-70 in conference games and... perhaps most importantly to fans in the Dakotas... they have won ten Dakota Marker rivalry trophies in that same span. This weekend Stiegelmeier will coach in his 24th playoff game when the Jacks take on Villanova.
