University of West Florida Argonauts - Staff Directory Pete Shinnick Pete Shinnick Head Coach Phone: Email: pshinnick@uwf.edu Follow @PeteShinnick 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 Shinnick 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."


Collegiate Consulting West Florida's Shinnick Discusses Coach Search Process » Collegiate Consulting

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.

Pete Shinnick, the first head coach of the University of West Florida's football program, made an appearance at UWF's Fort Walton Beach campus on Wednesday.
FORT WALTON BEACH - Pete Shinnick used a simple philosophy to build a football program at the University of North Carolina-Pembroke. He is now bringing that philosophy to his new job at the University of West Florida, where he is tweaking his policy to build a program from scratch in Pensacola. "We've got a recruiting philosophy that's been with me for my last 15 years as a head coach," said Shinnick, who was hired as UWF's first head football coach in program history in November. Shinnick shared his plan with local staff and members of the student body at UWF's Fort Walton Beach campus on Wednesday, visiting in conjunction with a UWF board of trustees meeting. The veteran coach, who spent seven seasons at UNC-Pembroke after a successful seven-year run at Azusa Pacific, also detailed his plans for beginning to accumulate talent for a UWF program that will play its first game in the fall of 2016. "We've got a timeline ahead of us to begin getting out there and recruiting student athletes this Fall," said Shinnick. "And then we will begin holding tryouts for kids already on campus in the spring of 2015. It has all been very exciting, and the response from coaches and athletes from this area has been tremendous." Picking up steam Building a football program from scratch is a rare task, and Shinnick comes to UWF having already accomplished that feat at UNC-Pembroke. Shinnick was UNC-Pembroke's first coach when the program started in 2005, and in his seven seasons he turned in a record of 50-24. Now Shinnick has the responsibility of starting from the ground up once again. And now Coach Shinnick gets that same response."

Efird, who is the only player to win the Brave Award twice - an award given by former UNCP head coach Pete Shinnick and voted by the players; given to the player who embodies what it means to be a good teammate and all-around UNCP player - was a record-setting high-school quarterback out of Kannapolis.
Efird, now a teacher and coach at Purnell Swett High, was the warmup for Shinnick, who was slated to be the day's guest preacher during services at Elizabethtown Presbyterian. For Shinnick, Sunday was his last official day in North Carolina, since he was set to head for Florida the next morning to begin his duties as head football coach at the University of West Florida. Shinnick rewarded that committee with eight years that included a 50-24 record, two playoff appearances and numerous players who have gone on to bigger and better things in life. "I wanted to set up my program not only to produce a winning team, but to make our players better husbands, fathers, employers and employees," Shinnick said. He went on to tell the congregation what it was like growing up. "The best thing about growing up in the Shinnick family is that Jesus was at the center," said Shinnick, whose father Don played 13 years in the NFL with the Baltimore Colts. Shinnick said the Bible story of Peter walking on water is a lot like what his life has been. "I realized after a while that, if my eyes are on Jesus, I will not sink," Shinnick said. He then related a story about a time when he was a senior starting lineman for his high-school football team. Just five games into the season, his team was 2-3, and the head coach decided to sit the seniors in order to give the younger players a chance to prepare for the next season. "I knew that, if I wasn't playing, I wouldn't have a chance at getting a scholarship," Shinnick said. "And that scholarship was what I wanted more than anything." So he went home to tell his father what had happened, just knowing that his father would see things his way and do something to get the coach to give him his starting position back. "My father listened to my story and thought for a moment," Shinnick said. Shinnick said he went to practice the next day and "right away became a better teammate, player and leader. That got him another starting spot and, even though he got hurt two games later, he earned a college scholarship at the University of Colorado. "I've been very blessed, and it goes back to what my dad said to me when I was 18," Shinnick said. In a lot of ways, Sunday morning's talk by Efird and Shinnick mirrored each other and, for the most part, the two were "preaching to the choir.
