In just her second season at UNCG, Marron guided the Spartans to seven top 10 finishes and three top five finishes, including a sixth place finish at the Southern Conference Championship.

graduation, Marron worked for one year as an assistant golf professional at The Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, AZ, Phil Mickelson’s home course.

The Spartans also recorded a second place finish at the Peggy Kirk Invitational led by junior Jenna Schmidt’s individual second place finish. UNCG also earned a second consecutive second place finish at the Shamrock Intercollegiate just a week later.

During her first season at the helm of the Spartans, her squad finished third at the 2004 Southern Conference Championship, which was held April 23-25 in Greensboro. Polly Willett led the club with a third-place finish. The team also placed fourth at the Peggy Kirk Bell Classic in Winter Springs, FL, led by Willet’s first-place finish. Marron came to UNCG after three seasons as an assistant coach at her alma mater, Penn State. While with the Nittany Lions, Marron was the recruiting coordinator and helped lead the squad to the 2003 NCAA East Regional Tournament. Marron was also involved in fundraising, travel, practice and the team’s summer golf camps. A native of Johnstown, PA, Marron completed her playing time for Penn State in 1998. An Academic All-Big Ten honoree, she served as the team’s co-captain as a senior. She posted two top-five finishes during the fall of 1997, when she twice shot a career-low round of 74.

On October 28, 1997, UNC Greensboro and Wake Forest decided to bring NCAA women’s golf to the Triad. The two schools, announded plans to host an annual golf tournament named the Bryan National Collegiate. The inaugural event took place on March 27-29, 1998, and was deemed an overwhelming success by everyone involved. Once again, the Spartans and Deacons will team up to host the ninth annual Bryan National Collegiate, to be held April 1-3, 2005. The 54-hole tournament will again be played at the Bryan Park Champions Course in Browns Summit, NC. This year’s field consists of 18 teams, including 10 who found themselves ranked in the top-25 at the end of the 2005 season. California (No. 7), Duke (No. 1), Florida (No. 10), Furman (No. 20), Georgia (No. 8), LSU (No. 17), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Oklahoma State (No. 11), Purdue, South Carolina, Tennessee (No. 6), Tulane (No. 13), UNC Greensboro, UNC Wilmington, Vanderbilt, Virginia (No. 22) and Wake Forest will all compete in this year’s event. “UNCG is thrilled to be a part of the Bryan National Intercollegiate! Together with Wake Forest, we are proud to have such an elite college event right here in Greensboro,” said UNCG head coach Emily Marron. “The field gets stronger each and every year, and The Champions Course continues to be an excellent venue for this event. We are truly appreciative of Mr. Jim Melvin and The Bryan Foundation for starting The Bryan National Intercollegiate and value their continued support of women’s college golf.” Wake Forest head coach Dianne Dailey echoed similiar thoughts. “We are pleased to be co-hosting this event with UNCG,” said Dailey. “It has been one of the best tournaments in collegiate golf. The Champions Course at Bryan Park is very challenging and brings out the best in our students.” Duke University has dominated the tournament, winning six of the eight team title’s, including the inugrual tourament in 1998, along with the last five, beginning in 2001. The University of Washington was victorius in 1999, while co-host Wake Forest came out on top in 2000. The Blue Devils dominance can be further explained with their four individual medalists as well. Last year’s champion Brittany Lang finished as the second ranked female college golfer last season. Meanwhile, Candy Hannemann and Virada Nirapathpongporn posted back-toback wins for Duke in 2001 and 2002 respectively. UNCG’s best team finish has been back-to-back 10th place finishes in 1999 and 2000. Individually, Lotta Johnson tied for 12th in 2000 with a three-day total of 226 (77-76-73), which represents the Spartans best finish in the seven years of the event.

MEMBERSHIP HISTORY

The Southern Conference was formed on February 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, Ga. Fourteen institutions from the 30-member Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) reorganized as the Southern Conference. Those charter members included Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. Athletic competition began in the fall of 1921. In 1922, six more schools - Florida, Louisiana State, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. Virginia Military Institute became a member in 1925 and Duke University came into the fold in 1929. Since then, conference membership has experienced a series of membership changes with 42 institutions having been affiliated with the league. The league has undergone two major transitions during its history. The first occurred in December 1932 when the Southeastern Conference was formed out of the 23-school Southern Conference. The league’s 13 members west and south of the Appalachian Mountains reorganized to help reduce the extensive travel demands that were present in the league at the time. In 1936, the Southern Conference invited The Citadel, William & Mary, Davidson, Furman, Richmond and Wake Forest to join the membership. The second major shift happened in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest officially withdrew from the league to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. This change was brought about due to the desire of many of those schools to schedule a greater number of regular season basketball games against their local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Southeastern states. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. The most recent addition, Elon University, joined the Southern Conference on July 1, 2003. The Phoenix replaced Virginia Military Institute 16 • 2005-06 UNCG Women’s Golf Media Guide

LEADERSHIP

Entering the 2005 football campaign, Geoff Cabe serves as the Southern Conference’s interim commissioner. A member of the conference staff since 1988, Cabe has been involved in every facet of the SoCon’s operation. Since 2002, he has been senior associate commissioner where his duties have included serving as the executive producer for all of the SoCon’s championship events and coordinator of all external relationships for the conference. Cabe previously headed up the league’s media relations department (1991-95) and its championships area (1995-99) and has been both an assistant commissioner and associate commissioner. Cabe, now in his second term as the interim commissioner, replaced Danny Morrison who served as commissioner from November 13, 2001 until June 15, 2005. Morrison recently became the director of athletics at Texas Christian University. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference. Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. He was succeeded by Dave Hart in 1987 who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, NC to Asheville, NC. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball Tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current SoCon logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. He became the president of the Asheville franchise of the National

Basketball Development League in 2001.

CHAMPIONSHIPS HISTORY

The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. In May of 1923, the league held its first outdoor track and field championship in Montgomery, Ala. Mississippi A&M (now Mississippi State) captured six individual titles on its way to winning the team championship. Two other sports - cross country and tennis - held their first championships during the 1920s. North Carolina won the initial cross country team championship in 1926 in Athens, Ga. Tennis crowned its first singles and doubles champions in New Orleans, La. in 1928. Donald Cram of Vanderbilt was the league’s first singles champion, while Leonard Chamberlin and Maurie Bayon of Tulane won the doubles title. The 1930s saw four more sports - wrestling, indoor track and field, swimming and golf - celebrate their first conference championships. VMI played host to and won the first league wrestling team championship in 1930. Washington & Lee won the first indoor track team championship, which also took place in 1930 and was held at Chapel Hill, N.C. The University of Virginia hosted and won the first league swimming championship in 1933, while Duke captured the first conference golf team title at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. later that same year. Baseball was introduced as a Southern Conference sport in 1947 as Clemson captured the league championship that year. Rifle held its first conference championship in 1956, while soccer was the most recently added men’s sport in 1967. The Southern Conference began sponsoring women’s sports during the 1983-84 season. That year, volleyball, basketball and tennis championships were held in the league. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994. The Southern Conference currently declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf - and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis, golf and softball.

COACHES AND ADMINISTRATORS

The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Rupp guided the Wildcats to a 30-5 mark during the 1931 and 1932 seasons. Yet, for all his coaching accomplishments, Rupp never led Kentucky to a Southern Conference tournament championship. Case mentored the Wolfpack to six consecutive Southern Conference Tournament championships from 1947 through 1952. In North Carolina State’s final season in the league, the Wolfpack won the regular season title but fell in the tournament championship game to Wake Forest, 71-70. Despite coaching in the conference for just seven seasons, Case is the ninth winningest coach in league history and averaged 26.7 wins per year during his tenure, the best mark in conference history. Case was named Southern Conference Coach-of-the-Year three times. Lefty Driesell, most recently the head coach at Georgia State, coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Driesell also won the league’s Coach-of-the-Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach-of-the-Year honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State.


With a record number 15,347 students enrolled for Fall 2004, a dedicated faculty and staff numbering more than 2,000, and exciting new developments underway, UNCG is rapidly taking its place as one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the country. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is classified as a Doctoral/Research-Intensive University. The University was established in 1891 and became coeducational in 1963. The 200-acre campus is located one mile from the center of Greensboro, a city of 227,793. The Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point Metropolitan Statistical Area has a population of approximately 1,089,155, with the population of Guilford County representing approximately 390,000.

University History

The University has a rich history. It was chartered Feb. 18, 1891, as the State Normal and Industrial School (later College), the first state-supported school for the higher education of women in North Carolina. The institution came into being as a direct result of a crusade made by Charles Duncan McIver on behalf of the education of women. Other pioneers in public school education — notably, Charles B. Aycock, Edwin A. Alderman, and James Y. Joyner — came to Dr. McIver’s assistance; but to him, more than to any other individual, the University owes its foundation. In the past century the University has evolved in its mission, as suggested with its sequence of names. It was known first as the State Normal and Industrial School, and after 1896 as the State Normal and Industrial College until 1919. During the period 1919-1931 it was known as the North Carolina College for Women, and became the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina from 1932 to 1963. It is warmly remembered as “the WC” by its many alumnae of the period. During the years 1932-1963 the University was one of the three branches of the Consolidated University of North Carolina. The other branches included The University of North Carolina (at Chapel Hill) and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (at Raleigh). In 1962, the Board of Trustees recommended that the Greensboro campus become coeducational at all levels of instruction in the fall of 1964. Subsequently, by act of the General Assembly in the Spring of 1963, the name of the institution was changed to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In December of 1934, during the years of the Consolidated University, the Woman’s College Section of the Alpha of North Carolina Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa was installed. (Alpha Chapter is the one at Chapel Hill.) On February 17, 1956 Epsilon Chapter of North Carolina was installed at this campus. In October of 1971 the North Carolina General Assembly adopted legislation which combined all 16 of the state-supported institutions of higher education into a single University of North Carolina. The UNC system is governed by a board of governors and administered by a president. Each constituent institution has a separate board of trustees and is administered by a chancellor. The crusader for founding the institution, Charles Duncan McIver, served the institution as its first chief executive officer with the title of President. By act of the Board of Trustees in 1945, the title was changed to Chancellor. Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan became UNCG’s first woman chancellor in January 1995, succeeding Dr. Debra W. Stewart, Dean of the Graduate School at North Carolina State University who was named Interim Chancellor in the summer of 1994. During its first seven decades, the institution’s mission was to prepare women, primarily undergraduates, for the most effective living of that day. Today that goal — effective living — remains the same, but its scope has been greatly expanded. As UNCG, it now offers men and women over 150 graduate and undergraduate programs and provides opportunities

to apply classroom learning to real life situations through internships and practica. It also offers students the chance to tailor-make their own programs of study based on individual needs and goals. Although contemporary in its educational program, UNCG is also realistic. In its effort to prepare graduates for effective living, it has built into its program the flexibility needed to meet the rapidly changing needs of society. UNCG, therefore, will remain a university in transition, not satisfied with yesterday or today, but always looking toward tomorrow.

ricular and coeducational activities. There are more than 130 student organizations, an active Student Government, fraternities and sororities, and a Campus Recreation program which offers informal, intramural and club sports, as well as an extensive outdoor adventure program. The 76 buildings on the campus reflect the 110-year history of the University. Also, there are new features, including a new, $26 million music building which opened in August 1999, and renovations to the Elliott University Center, which were recently completed. A new baseball stadium opened in February 1999. UNCG will receive approximately $159 million from the state for construction and renovation, based on voter approval of the Higher Education Bonds last November 7. A $46 million science building is the centerpiece of the new projects. Groundbreaking took place in spring of 2001. The Second Century Campaign for UNCG concluded Dec. 31, 1998, after five years and raised $55.4 million to create 77 new scholarship and fellowship funds, as well as funds for research, programs and acquisitions. In the Fall of 2004, the University announced that its newest campaign, entitled the Students First Campaign. is almost one-quarter of the way to its goal of $78 million. The Students First Campaign will set aside $52 million for scholarships to make UNCG the school of choice for top high school students in the North Carolina and elsewhere. Remaining funds will also be used for endowments to attract top professors, expansion of university facilities and expansion of public services. UNCG hopes to meet its goal by the year 2009. UNCG is a member of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) and the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AASCU). In athletics, UNCG began NCAA Division I competition in 1991 and is a member of the Southern Conference.

male. In the fall of 2004, UNCG enrolled a record 2,158 freshman. The University also enrolled 1,257 transfer students, its most ever. In the fall of 2004, 67% of freshman applicants were accepted and 25% enrolled to make up a class of 2,158. The average SAT score for the freshman class enrolling in 2003 was 1041. Undergraduates have more than 100 areas of study from which to choose a major leading to one of six undergraduate degrees. In addition, there are 59 master’s degrees and 18 doctoral degrees offered. In the spring of 2004, UNCG awarded 1,884 bachelor’s and 729 master’s degrees. Also, 67 doctoral degrees were awarded in English, psychology, education, nutrition, human development and family studies, exercise & sport science, and music. UNCG has long had a reputation for academic excellence and is one of only six higher education institutions in the state with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Athletes at UNCG are not an exception to the rule. At the end of each of the last two academic years, more than 40% of UNCG student-athletes held a grade-point-average of 3.0 or better. Nearly one-third of UNCG’s 268 student-athletes made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (3.0 GPA in a semester) in both semester during the 2004-05 academic year. In October 2004, “Cosmo GIRL”, a magazine geared towards young women, rated UNCG one of the Top 50 institutions in America. For its study, the magazine focused on specific factors important to female students: small class size, prominent female faculty, strong women’s athletic programs, a career center that facilitates internship opportunities, leadership options among clubs and activities and an active alumni network. The finalists were selected from 2,685 colleges and universities. In August 2004, The Princeton Review rated UNCG the second-best bargain in its “The Best 357 Colleges” guide. It marked the sixth-straight UNCG appeared in the guide, and its highest-ever rating. UNCG was also ranked in the Top 50 public universities by Consumer’s Digest, making it the only institution to appear in both rankings. In-state tuition and room and board rates for UNCG are just over $9,000 per year, while out-of-state rates are just over $20,000 per year.

In the Fall of 2004, the University unveiled a new look to the Spartan.


The UNCG Plan In spring 1998, the University community adopted The UNCG Plan, a comprehensive document developed by the University Planning Council that articulates the vision of the University and identifies five key strategic directions which will shape its future: • UNCG will provide exemplary learning environments. • UNCG will expand its research and infuse the excitement of scholarship into its teaching and learning. • UNCG will build a strong sense of community as a student-centered university. • UNCG will expand its outreach in the Piedmont Triad, the state of North Carolina, and beyond. • UNCG will increase its enrollment by actively recruiting and retaining students with the academic preparedness and potential to succeed in a rigorous academic environment.

The Rock Not all colleges and universities can boast a message board with a circumference of 25’ and a width that exceeds 10’. UNCG houses a campus marker that is a visual representation of University history, tradition, and legacy. Known simply as “The Rock” — not to be confused with the nationally recognized wrestler/actor — the boulder-sized message board was brought to UNCG’s campus in 1973 by members of Alpha Phi Omega. Initially located where the fountain is today, it currently rests between the Dining Hall and Jackson Library, where it has resided since 1987. Rather than force students and the community to solely rely upon cluttered bulletin boards, The Rock is an alternate campus informant. Students also know the unwritten rule that the painted messages on The Rock can be removed after 24 hours. Thus, within a week’s time, seven messages could be posted on The Rock. This also speaks to the many activities and events that the University supports. Easy access and its central location are other reasons The Rock is well known on campus. Plus, The Rock’s changing colors and special messages help attract the attention of students and visitors to the University. Those who encounter The Rock for the first time are undoubtedly taken aback by its grandiose appearance and are forced to wonder about its significance. The Rock, with its large exterior and eye-catching graphics, is an important part of UNCG’s history and legacy and is a solid representation of the University’s unyielding belief in and dedication to tradition and uniqueness.

UNCG Chancellor Dr. Patricia Sullivan Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan, who has served as UNCG’s Chancellor since January 1, 1995, is the institution’s ninth chief executive and the first woman to serve in the position. Her leadership has sustained UNCG’s record of excellence and prepared a solid foundation for the future. UNCG was founded as State Normal and Industrial School, a college for women in 1891. The institution became coeducational in 1963. Today, UNCG offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate programs. Sullivan led the University through a strategic planning process that produced the UNCG Plan. Created for five-year increments, the Plan provides a framework for enhancing UNCG’s position as a diverse, student-centered research university, linking the Triad and North Carolina to the world through learning, discovery, and service. Under Dr. Sullivan’s leadership, enrollment at UNCG exceeded 15,000 in fall 2005, while academic standards for admission have increased. The campus continues to lead the UNC system in minority enrollment, underscoring UNCG’s commitment to diversity. New undergraduate programs for freshman include Communication Across the Curriculum and the living-learning communities. Distinctive graduate programs include genetic counseling and management information systems, along with new Ph.D. programs in the areas of nursing, public health, economics, geography, history, information technology and special education. Funding to support research and community projects has continued to grow, along with giving by the University’s friends and supporters. UNCG’s new Students First Campaign is under way, with a goal of raising $78.2 million through 2009. The earlier Second Century Campaign for UNCG, which ended in December 1998, raised $55.4 million, far exceeding the original goal of $42.8

million. As UNCG’s most ardent advocate, Dr. Sullivan has made a public case for more state appropriations, which have brought additional funding for facilities. These efforts have resulted in a number of capital improvements at UNCG. Currently under construction are the Studio Art Center and a Hall for Humanities and Research Administration, both funded by the North Carolina Higher Education Bonds, and a new 400-bed residence hall - all expected to be completed for use in the 2006-07 year. Structures already completed include a $46 million Science Building, a $26 million School of Music building, a $5 million baseball stadium and student recreation area, and a major renovation for the Elliott University Center, UNCG’s student union. A native of Staten Island, NY, Dr. Sullivan is a graduate of St. John’s University, and earned her master’s and Ph.D. degrees in biology from New York University. She came to UNCG from Texas Woman’s University, where she was vice president for academic affairs for seven years. She also was interim president there for a year. From 1981-87, she was dean of the college at Salem College in WinstonSalem. She is married to Dr. Charles Sullivan, an electrical and computer software engineer. Dr. Sullivan received the honorary Doctor of Pedagogy degree from St. John’s University in 1999. Her other awards and honors include: selection as one of 10 recipients of the 2003 Women in Business Awards and as one of “10 People to Watch in 2004,” annual honors by The Business Journal; and being named the 2003 inductee for the Business Leaders Hall of Fame of the Central North Carolina Junior Achievement chapter. Her academic honors include memberships in Beta Beta Beta biology honor society, Sigma Xi, and Phi Kappa Phi. She also was an NYU Honors Scholar.


Director of Athletics Nelson Bobb Now in his 23rd year as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at UNCG, Nelson E. Bobb has developed a nationally recognized program that has continually succeeded in competition as well as in the classroom. Bobb, the first full-time athletic director at the University, is the primary architect of a program that now features 16 NCAA Division I teams, eight for men and eight for women. When he arrived in July 1983, there were eight Division III teams. The University authorized the shift to Division I in February 1987 and he guided the program through the unprecedented change in competitive status in only five years. UNCG is one of only a dozen institutions to ever compete in all three divisions. However, no other institution has made the complete shift of all teams from Division III to Division I in that time frame. In addition, with the reconstruction of UNCG’s softball venue this past year, he has overseen a complete overhaul of every UNCG athletic facility. During his tenure, he has watched over the construction or renovation of all of the Spartans’ athletic venues, beginning with serving on the committee that built Fleming Gymnasium and the HHP Building in 1989, moving onto the transformation of Campus Field into what is today UNCG Soccer Stadium in 1991, the construction of the UNCG Baseball Stadium in 1999, the renovation and lighting of the UNCG Tennis Courts in 1999, and current projects that include the transformation of UNCG’s softball facility to become a top-of-the-line stadium venue this coming fall and the reconfiguration of seating in Fleming Gym, which began this past summer. Under Bobb’s guidance, Spartan student-athletes have consistently graduated at a rate equal to or higher than the general student population at UNCG. Each of the last two academic years, more than 40 percent of UNCG’s student-athletes earned Dean’s List. In addition, during Bobb’s 22-year tenure, UNCG student-athletes have graduated at a higher rate than the University graduation rate every year. Other recent program accomplishments include completing the NCAA certification process for Division I institutions twice and successfully transitioning the department’s teams into Southern Conference membership. Under Bobb’s leadership, UNCG hosted the final two rounds of the 1997 and 1998 NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship, and was home to Olympic athletes from several countries for training prior to the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996. During his tenure, UNCG teams have won 33 conference tournament titles, 24 as an NCAA Division I member. They have also won 62 conference regular season titles, 36 of those since moving to NCAA Division I. UNCG earned the Commissioner’s Cup for overall excellence in the Big South for three consecutive years. While Bobb was athletic director in the 1980’s, the men’s soccer team won four Division III national championships and the women’s basketball team made five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances with a third-place finish in 1988. During his tenure at UNCG, Bobb has also served in various NCAA appointments, including serving on one of the first NCAA Certification

teams. Most recently, Bobb served on the Division I Men’s Soccer National Committee and had a two-year term as the chair of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rules Committee. UNCG student-athletes have received numerous awards. In 1984, he established the Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award to honor the studentathlete(s) posting the highest grade-point average annually. Bobb, a native of Gahanna, OH, oversees a staff of more than 50 full and part-time employees with administrative divisions of administration and business, student welfare, facilities and operations and integrated public affairs within the department. Before coming to UNCG, Bobb served as an assistant athletic director at Cornell University for five years. He also served as an assistant football coach at Cornell for nine seasons. A 1970 graduate of Kent State (OH) with a bachelor’s degree in education, Bobb also holds a master’s degree in secondary education from Kent. As an undergraduate, he was a three-year letterwinner on the football team as an offensive guard and earned All-Academic recognition from the Mid-American Conference as a junior. He was an all-conference choice his senior year.
