App Store Description

Recruit. Strategize. Win.

Take control of your own college football program and bring it to glory!

In Football Coach, you play the newly-hired head coach at your college of choice. As head coach, it will be your responsibility to manage your team's strategy, simulate through seasons, recruit new players, and above all, win championships.

Playing a Season: Your team will play 12 games in the regular season, which consist of playing all 9 of your conference opponents once and three out-of-conference games. The most important game of the regular season is your rivalry game, which you gain prestige if won or lose prestige if lost.

At the end of the regular season, the Conference Championship is played between the two teams with the best in-conference record. If two teams have the same record, a head-to-head tiebreaker is used. If three or more teams have the same record, the one with the highest poll ranking is chosen. After the Conference Championships, Bowl Games are played. Only the top 16 teams get chosen for a bowl, with the most important being the National Semifinals between the #1 and #4 team, and the #2 and #3 team. The winner of these two games advance to the National Championship where an undisputed champion is crowned.

After the season, your team will gain or lose prestige based on their results versus their expectations.

Rankings: As your team plays through the season, pollsters will determine how good (or bad) your team is compared to others. This "poll ranking" is determined by wins, margin of victory, strength of schedule, and more, and determines who gets into a bowl game and the semifinals.

Roster: When you start your career, you'll inherit a roster of 48 players (22 starters), broken down by position like so:

  • 2 Quarterbacks (1 starter)
  • 4 Running Backs (2 starters)
  • 6 Wide Receivers (2 starters)
  • 2 Tight Ends (1 starter)
  • 10 Offensive Linemen (5 starters)
  • 8 Defensive Linemen (4 starters)
  • 6 Linebackers (3 starters)
  • 6 Cornerbacks (2 starters)
  • 2 Safeties (1 starter)
  • 2 Kickers (1 starter)

Playbooks: As a coach, you can pick what playbooks your team employs on offense and defense throughout the season. Among what's offered on offense:

  • Balanced
  • Smashmouth
  • West Coast
  • Spread
  • Read Option:

On defense, coaches can choose from the following philosophies:

  • 4-3 Man
  • 4-6 Bear
  • Cover 2
  • Cover 3

Recruiting: As coach, you are responsible for recruiting the next class of players that will lead your team to bigger and better wins. You recruit based on a budget, which is determined by your team's prestige. Better teams will have more money to work with, while worse teams will have to save money where they can.

Football Coach is not monetized and I have no plans to do so. I love college football and seeing people use my app is all the encouragement I need. But if you love the app and you would like to let me know, you can donate via PayPal:
