Head Football Coach Kevin Bullis Announces Retirement From UW-Whitewater

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater head football coach Kevin Bullis has announced his retirement after 15 seasons with the program, including the last eight seasons as the head coach.

“It has been an honor and pleasure coaching and teaching in the Warhawk football program and UW-Whitewater,” Bullis said. “I will greatly miss the students and staff. Kathy and I have lived truly amazing coaching lives and it is time for us to live life.”

Bullis joined the UW-Whitewater staff in 2008 as an assistant coach before taking over as head coach in January 2015. He was just the fourth head coach in the last 60 years and the 21st head coach in program history.

Bullis compiled a 78-13 (.857) overall record and a 45-4 (.918) record in WIAC (Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) play. His overall winning percentage is second best in program history, behind his predecessor Lance Leipold.

“Kevin is a great coach and an even better person,” Athletic Director Ryan Callahan said. “The life lessons he taught his student-athletes, coaches and colleagues will continue to be felt for years to come. I’m forever grateful for my time with Coach Bullis and excited for him and his family on his retirement.”

Defensive Coordinator Jace Rindahl has been named as the interim head coach. A national search for the head coaching position will begin in early 2023.
