The current head football coach at Tabor is Mike Gardner. Coach Gardner returned to take over the 2010 season after serving as head coach for the 2004 and 2005 seasons, where the teams posted a combined record of 20 wins and 3 losses with two consecutive conference championships and two post-season appearances.[2] In 2009, Tabor College built a Joel Wiens Stadium, a new football complex that is shared with Hillsboro High School.[3]
