Joe Paterno is No Longer the Winningest Coach in Major College Football History Due to Mark Emmert's Decision

Joe Paterno won 409 games during his coaching career, ranking him 1st in major college football history.* That record was wiped from the record books today.

With Mark Emmert and the NCAA stripping away Penn State wins from 1998-2011 from Joe Paterno – 111 victories – he tumbles way down the list and is now left with 298 wins.

That leaves Grambling’s Eddie Robinson (now deceased) as No. 1 in major college football (408 wins), followed by Bobby Bowden (377) and Bear Bryant (323).
