Brent Thompson - Head Coach - Citadel South Carolina
The architect of one of the top rushing offenses in the FCS, Brent Thompson enters his fifth season as the head coach at The Citadel. Thompson owns an overall record of 26-20, including a program-record of 10 wins during his first season in 2016. Under Thompson’s guidance, the Bulldogs have ranked in the top-10 in rushing offense each of the last four seasons. The Citadel ranked sixth nationally in 2019 at 268.2 yards per game, ninth in 2018 at 283.6 yards per game, second in 2017 at 294.6 yards per game, and led the nation in 2016 at 348.2 rushing yards per game.
The 2019 season saw the Bulldogs overcome some early adversity to pull off the biggest win in the FCS. The Citadel went on the road in late September and knocked off Georgia Tech, 27-24, in overtime. It was the Bulldogs’ first win over an ACC opponent and the only victory by an FCS team over a Power 5 team that year.
