Bob Stull (born November 21, 1945) is an American college athletics administrator and former college football player and coach. He is currently the athletic director at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), a position he has held since 1998. Stull served as head football coach at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, (1984–1985), UTEP (1986–1988), and the University of Missouri (1989–1993), compiling a career college football record of 46–65–2.

Early life and playing career[edit]

A native of Davenport, Iowa, Stull was a three-year letterman at Kansas State University, where he earned bachelor's and master's degrees.

Coaching career[edit]

Stull began his coaching career at Dubuque Senior High School in Dubuque, Iowa. He was the offensive line coach at Kent State from 1971 to 1974 under Don James. He then followed James to Washington, where he was receivers coach (1975–1978) and later offensive coordinator (1979–1983).

After two seasons at Massachusetts, Stull was hired at UTEP, where he posted a 21–15 record from 1986 to 1988, culminating in a 10–2 record and an appearance in the 1988 Independence Bowl. Stull didn't fare as well at the University of Missouri, compiling a 15–38–2 record in five seasons. While at Missouri, he coached on the losing end of the infamous "Fifth Down Game".

Administrative career[edit]

After his coaching career, Stull entered administration at the University of Washington. He rejoined UTEP as athletic director after a 10-year absence.
