Coach Talley's tenure as a collegiate head coach has been vastly successful. He has posted a career record of 218-134-2, including 5 seasons at St. Lawrence and 28 seasons at Villanova. The 218 career victories rank him fifth on the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) active coach list. Talley's record at Villanova now stands at 190-116-1 which makes him the winningest coach in Villanova history as well as the winningest coach in Colonial Athletic Association history. Talley has won seven conference championships in four different conferences, and won the 2009 FCS National Championship with Villanova after a victory over Montana in the championship game. He is a five-time recipient of the American Football Coaches Association's (AFCA) Regional Coach of the Year award, a two-time AFCA National Coach of the Year winner, and a two-time New York Sportswriters/ECOC Coach of the Year winner. He also won the 1982 Kodak Coach of the Year, the 1997 Eddie Robinson Award, 1997 Atlantic 10 Conference Coach of the Year, and the 2008 Field Turf/Howie Long FCS Coach of the Year. Last March, Talley earned yet another Hall of Fame honor when he was inducted into the Villanova University Varsity Club Hall of Fame.
