NotesEdit

  1. A running total of the number of coaches of the Buckeyes. Thus, any coach who has two or more separate terms as head coach is counted only once.
  2. Ohio State did not join a conference until 1902.[3]
  3. Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, making ties impossible in the period since.[4]
  4. When computing the win–loss percentage, a tie counts as half a win and half a loss.[5]
  5. Charles Hickey was hired part-way through the 1896 season and student coached the team in several games.[6]
  6. Ohio State finished the 2010 season with an overall record of 12–1 and a conference record of 7–1. Ohio State voluntarily vacated all victories during the season, as well as the conference championship and Sugar Bowl victory, as a result of NCAA infractions.[17]
  7. Luke Fickell was named interim head coach in May 2011, following the resignation of Jim Tressel.[19]
