These are my listing of Big Dog Coaches in the NCAA. It is a bit surprising how few there are and that only one is west of the Mississippi. I will leave it to the reader to decide how many of the Big Dogs are also Dirty Dogs! A star indicates I have seen the Coach in action (live). I have only included outstanding retired Coaches if I have seen them.
