How old is too old for a college football head coach to succeed?

There are often cries for older coaches to be replaced because people think the coaches have been around too long and are becoming ineffective.

However, the nine older coaches in this list show that age doesn't seem to matter.

By older, we are talking 60-plus years old—or in the case of Mack Brown, 55 and older.

Between these nine coaches, you will find multiple trips to BCS games (and that's after their 60th birthdays), as well as conference titles, program records and programs getting put back in the right direction.

Read on for more detailed information in regard to some current coaches, as well as some of the greats, and their numbers after they hit their 60th birthdays.
