Pete Shinnick Head Coach
The University of West ..., 17 July 2014 [cached]
The University of West Florida, who will begin play in Division II in 2016, believes it found that leadership when it hired head coach Pete Shinnick in January. Shinnick comes to Pensacola, Fla., after previously bringing football back after a 50-year hiatus to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke in 2007. He took the school to the Division II playoffs in only its third season, and he finished his seven-year tenure with a 50-24 record. West Florida believes Shinnick can deliver on the goals set forth by the university to enhance the campus experience and get football off on the right foot.
Shinnick is the right man for the job. He is a demonstrated leader and has built a winning team from scratch. I am pleased he will join us at UWF and carry forward our vision."
Having gone through the football building process before, Shinnick knows the challenges of starting a program from scratch, but said after four months on the job that the momentum is moving in the right direction. Shinnick knows the significant impact football can have on a college campus.
"One of the reasons people start football is to complete the college atmosphere," said Shinnick.

Argonaut Football No Longer Coach-less The University of West Florida's football program made a huge stride toward its planned 2016 inaugural kickoff by hiring Pete Shinnick as the first head coach, announcing the hire on Friday, Jan. 31.
Shinnick comes to UWF from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke (UNCP), where he most recently served as head coach from 2005 through Jan. 31. Much like the situation he faces at UWF, Shinnick built the team at UNCP from the ground up after an over 50-year hiatus in that university's football program. In his seven seasons at the head of UNCP's football program, the team compiled a record of 50-24 and the 2009 UNCP team became the youngest program to advance to the NCAA Division II playoffs, managing the feat in only three years.
Shinnick grew up in a football family. His father, Don, worked as an assistant coach in the NFL with the Chicago Bears, St. Louis Cardinals, Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots after retiring from playing linebacker for the Baltimore Colts for 13 years. After playing college football at Colorado, Shinnick followed in his father's footsteps and accepted his first assistant coaching position at Richmond in 1988, coaching in some capacity at six other universities before landing his first head coaching position at Azusa Pacific in Azusa, Calif. in 1999. From Azusa, Shinnick went to UNCP, and will now apply his skills to building UWF's program.
If all goes according to plan, Shinnick will begin recruiting the first student athletes this fall, and will enroll and begin practices with the inaugural recruiting class in fall 2015.
