Just as a starting point there are five in P5, one independant, and four from smaller (G5) conferences.

Coach Fran didn't, if I recall. Don't know if he's still coaching. Florida coach always struck me as not an athlete, could be wrong. ND coach is tiny and a former politician. I don't think he played.

Some of the answers could be with second generation coaches, too. Dad was a coach, kid wasn't an athlete at the highest level, so didn't play college ball.

Two from the SEC with Leach and Drinkwitz.
Two from the ACC with Cutcliffe and Diaz.
One independent with Freeze at Liberty.

Leaving five ... one more from a P5 conference,

There's another I can't believe some here have missed so far. His name was bantered about with a few job openings recently.
