Dave Arslanian (born April 13, 1949) is an American former college football coach and player. He served as the head football coach at Weber State University from 1989 to 1997 and Utah State University from 1998 to 1999, compiling an career record of 60 wins and 62 losses.

Coaching career

Arslanian began his head coaching career at Snow College, a junior college in Ephraim, before moving on to Weber State.

Arslanian spent 16 years on the coaching staff at Weber State. He was an assistant for seven years under Mike Price and spent nine seasons (1989–1997) as the head coach for the Wildcats. During his tenure, Arslanian compiled a 53–47 record. His 53 victories are the most in Weber State history, just ahead of his father, Sark Arslanian, who compiled a 50–26–2 record from 1965–1972. His 47 Big Sky victories also rank 12th all-time in the conference. Arslanian coached the Wildcats to six winning records and one appearance in the NCAA I-AA playoffs in his last seven seasons as head coach.

Following the 1997 season, Arslanian moved north to take over as head coach at Utah State. He coached the Aggies for two seasons, posting a 7–16 record before being fired on December 2, 1999 with two years remaining on his original four-year contract.

Arslanian later resurfaced briefly as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Birmingham Thunderbolts, a team in the ill-fated XFL in 2001.

Arslanian is now out of coaching and currently runs Eagle Ranch Academy, a school for troubled teens operated in St. George, Utah.

Personal life

Arslanian was born in St. George. He was one of six children. He attended college at Weber State, where he earned a bachelor's degree and Arizona State where he earned a masters degree.
