Bob Schultz - Head Coach - 6th Season

PH. - 563-588-7491


Bob Schultz returned to Loras in 2005 to serve as the head men's and women's cross country and track and field coach. Schultz was previously an assistant at Loras from 1991-1994, and earned his master's degree in physical education/athletic administration from the college in 1994. 


Coach Schultz recently completed his seventh season as the Duhawks' cross country coach. The men's team won the IIAC Championship this fall for which Schultz was named the Iowa Conference Coach of the Year.  The Duhawks went on to qualify for the National Championship where they finished 25th in the country.  During the season, the men won the Wartburg Invitational and were the top DIII finisher at the National Catholic Championships hosted by the University of Notre Dame.  The women's team finished third in the IIAC behind two top 25 teams and finished 9th in the Central Region, arguably the top region in the nation.  Individually, Genna Kinley qualified for the National Championship and went on to run 22:28, the second fastest time in program history. 


In track & field, the Loras women finished the 2012 indoor season second in the Iowa Conference, while the Duhawk men finished third.  Loras sent a number of athletes to the National Championships in 2011 and senior Laura Rieger earned All-American for the indoor 800 with a new school record time of 2:12.52.  Schultz has received a wide array of accomplishments during his time at Loras, including the IIAC and NCAA Central Region Coach of the Year for 2007 in men's indoor track and field. He led the men to the IIAC indoor championship in 2007 and the IIAC outdoor championship in 2005, including two top ten NCAA Indoor & Outdoor finishes at the Men's Championships. Schultz also led the women to a 5th place finish in 2007 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Loras Track & Field has had a combined 59 All Americans in men's and women's indoor and outdoor track and field at Loras, including three NCAA Division III Champions under Schultz.


Loras is Schultz's third different head coaching stop. He comes to Dubuque from Lewis University in the suburbs of Chicago. Schultz spent three years coaching at Lewis, where he held the same position he holds at Loras. Combined between both teams, Schultz guided the Flyers to four Great Lakes Valley Conference titles in track and field and two in cross country.


Schultz has also previously served as the Head Coach at Elmhurst College, an NCAA Division III school in his hometown of Elmhurst, Illinois. He headed the cross country programs for eight years (1994-2001) and the track and field programs for six seasons.


Schultz graduated from Lewis University in 1991 after a successful career as an athlete. He ran in high school for nationally known York High School in Elmhurst, Ill. He, and his wife, Jennifer, are the proud parents of two sons, Joey and Justin. They reside in Dubuque.
