Pete Shinnick Head Coach
Phone: Email: pshinnick@uwf.edu
After a collegiate coaching career spanning more than 25 years, Pete Shinnick came to the University of West Florida in 2014 as the school’s first football head coach. Shinnick’s career has included stints as a head coach at Azusa Pacific and UNC Pembroke, and he will lead the UWF football program in its first season in 2016.
Shinnick Press Conference Recap
Shinnick most recently coached at UNC Pembroke, where he was hired in 2005 to bring football back to the university after an absence of more than 50 years. He built the Braves into a nationally-ranked NCAA Division II team and compiled a record of 50-24 in seven seasons. Before bringing football back to UNC Pembroke, Shinnick made his mark as head coach of former NAIA powerhouse Azusa Pacific. In seven years with the Cougars, his teams posted a mark of 53-22 and earned two national semifinalist finishes.
UNC Pembroke Shinnick was announced as UNCP’s head coach in December 2005, and the team began playing in 2007. After a 4-7 record the first season, the Braves averaged nearly eight wins over their next six years. Shinnick led the team to nine wins each in 2008 and 2009, and the 2009 team became the youngest program (three years) to advance to the NCAA Division II playoffs.
In his seven years coaching at UNCP, Shinnick finished with a record of 50-24 (.676 winning percentage). The second year team in 2008 finished as the NCAA Division II statistical national champion in scoring defense (11.2 points allowed per game), and they ranked sixth in the same category the following year (15.1). He led the Braves back to their second NCAA tournament in 2013, as the team earned a first round bye into the round of 16. The 2013 team was also ranked as high as No. 8 in the American Football Coaches Association national poll.
Azusa Pacific Before building the program at UNC Pembroke, Shinnick excelled in his seven years as head coach at Azusa Pacific in Azusa, Calif. He took over in 1999 and saw immediate success, as the Cougars posted a record of 9-3 and advanced to the NAIA semifinals. Shinnick posted a record of 53-22 (.707 winning percentage) and the team made five total appearances in the NAIA playoffs, including a trip back to the semifinals in 2004.
His teams at Azusa Pacific set a total of 77 school records under his watch, and the Cougars appeared in the NAIA top 25 rankings 48 consecutive times and 75 out of 86 in his seven years. In Shinnick’s last four years, the team averaged more than 23.5 points per game and 328 total yards of offense per contest.
Previous experience Before getting his first head coaching job at Azusa Pacific, Shinnick received a varied experience as an assistant coach at multiple levels. His first assistant coach position was at Richmond in 1988, and he coached at six more universities (Arkansas, Clemson, Oregon State, Northern Michigan, St. Cloud State, Humboldt State) before landing at Azusa Pacific in 1999.
Shinnick graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business from Colorado in 1988, and he was a two-year letterwinner as an offensive lineman for the Buffaloes in 1985 and 1986. He appeared in 21 games for Colorado, including the 1985 Freedom Bowl and the 1986 Bluebonnet Bowl. He later earned his master’s degree in guidance and counseling from Clemson in 1992.
Family Pete grew up in a football family, as his father Don Shinnick was a linebacker for the Baltimore Colts in the National Football League for 13 seasons.
...
Pete was born in Baltimore, Md. and graduated from high school in Columbia, Mo. Pete and his wife, Traci, are the proud parents of four children: Anna, Rachel, Elijah and Benjamin.
...
"Pete Shinnick has demonstrated proven success as a head coach with what he has accomplished at UNC Pembroke. His background, leadership and character make him a perfect fit for West Florida and a great addition to the Gulf South Conference."
Tim Horton, running backs coach at Auburn University (played for Shinnick while at University of Arkansas)
...
“I have known Pete for 20 years and I am so excited he will be the new head football coach at the University of West Florida. Pete is a tremendous football coach who has been successful building football programs wherever he has been. The student-athletes that have played for Pete have been influenced by his commitment to excellence in the classroom as well as on the field. His concern for his players goes beyond the field to create an atmosphere in the program of support and caring for each member of the team. As UWF begins its football journey I can't think of a better person to build a foundation of passion, character and trust than Coach Shinnick."

When Dave Scott, UWF's director of athletics, announced Pete Shinnick as the inaugural head coach for the Argos, the face of the team became a little clearer and a little brighter.

...
"I can't remember where I saw the position posted, but it was through a press release online," said Shinnick on first becoming aware of a potential new job. "I was on the Internet checking scores of other Division II football games around the country when I noticed it."
Shinnick, who spent the last eight years as the head coach for UNC Pembroke, reached out to Russell Wright, Collegiate Consulting's managing director.
...
"I liked that Collegiate Consulting was involved from the beginning," Shinnick continued.
...
Even though the Argos first season of competition isn't until 2016, Shinnick hasn't had much time to relax. Since landing on campus in February, the coach has been meeting with UWF boosters and supporters of the program. He has hit the road as well, assembling his first recruiting class and visiting other camps throughout the Southeast, including Les Miles' spring practice at LSU. Last week Shinnick announced the first two hires on the Argos football staff.
Shinnick knows the drill. He did it once before at UNC Pembroke, guiding a fledgling program from its inception to a 50-24 record in seven seasons. In 2009 the Braves became the youngest program (three years) to advance to the NCAA Division II playoffs. And he aims to do the same at West Florida.
