Published by Steve Campion. Category: Sports & Recreation

Only three football head coaches have won national titles at both the college and professional level of the sport. That is no simple feat considering the great number of teams and the vast differences in organization and team-building dynamics.  With the Seattle Seahawks win in Super Bowl XLVIII, Pete Carroll became the newest member of that elite club.

Here is the very short list and the seasons that earned the national titles.
