2Because of a tragic coincidence, Schnellenberger ended his career as the oldest active head coach in the NCAA's Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS; formerly Division I-A). At the age of 77, he began the 2011 season as the second oldest head coach in the FBS, behind Penn State's Joe Paterno, 84. But on November 9, Paterno was fired amid the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. Schnellenberger, who had already announced that he would retire at the end of the season, coached his last game 24 days after Paterno's firing.
