Football, Golf, Baseball, and Tennis

One of the most influential names in the growth of California Lutheran University athletics, Bob Shoup coached four sports at the school and served as the athletic director for eight years (1969-77).

As a coach, he made his largest impact on the football field racking up 184 wins and a .662 winning percentage from 1962 to 1989. At the time of his induction, he had more wins than any other football coach in CLU history. Twenty-one of his 28 seasons as head football coach were winning seasons for the Kingsmen. He was voted the NAIA District 3 Coach of the Year nine consecutive years and was named the Western Coach of the Year three times.

In 1971 he led Cal Lutheran to the NAIA Division II National Championship, which still stood as the school’s only national championship at the time of his induction. He coached the Kingsmen to five NAIA playoff appearances (1971, ’75, ’77, ’79, ’82). In 1971 the NAIA recognized him as their Coach of the Year and in 1972 he was honored as the Western Airlines Sportsman of the Year.

During his career, Shoup collected 13 NAIA District 3 titles. While at Cal Lutheran, he also coached golf, baseball and a tennis program that he started.
