Before joining Abilene Christian University in 1993, Schubert worked as an auditor for Arthur Andersen & Co. in Dallas, Texas.

Personal life[edit]

Schubert coaches his son's Wylie Little League baseball team and attends Southern Hills Church of Christ in Abilene. Schubert has three children, Sydnie, Mason, and Ella. Schubert had two older brothers who also attended ACU: David and Kelly Schubert. His father, Joe D. Schubert, Ed.D., was a Dean of Students at Oklahoma Christian College in the late 1960s and a well-known preacher in the Churches of Christ, including Bammel Road Church of Christ in Houston, which was the first congregation to collect over $1 million in a single Sunday special contribution.
