Ron McBride


Ron McBride

Ron McBride is the current head coach of Weber State University's football team. Coach "Mac" has over 40 years of coaching experience, including 13 years as head coach at the University of Utah.

A native of Los Angeles, California, McBride was an all-city football and baseball standout at South Gate High School. He attended San Jose State where he played for the Spartans from 1959-62 and served as team captain his senior year. He later played professionally with the San Jose Apaches of the USA League.

Coaching history

McBride began his career at San Jose State in 1965, serving as the freshman coach, defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. He then spent two years as an assistant coach at Piedmont Hills High School (1966-68) and as an assistant at Gavilan Junior College (1969-71), before returning to the NCAA collegiate ranks.From 1972-73, he served as an assistant coach at UC-Riverside, where he was in charge of the offensive line and served as offensive coordinator. He then served in the same capacities at Long Beach State from 1974-76.

McBride first came to Utah in 1977 to serve as the offensive line coach and offensive coordinator under Coach Wayne Howard at the University of Utah. In 1983, he accepted a position as the offensive line coach at Wisconsin, where he served two seasons before returning back to Salt Lake City, coaching the offensive line from 1985-86 under head coach Jim Fassel.

In 1987, he left the Utes to join Dick Tomey's staff at Arizona. He served two years as the offensive line coach and was elevated to assistant head coach during the 1989 season. Following that season he became the head coach at Utah.

During his tenure at The U, McBride posted an overall record of 88-63 (.582), the second most wins by a coach in the history of Utah football. He took the Utes to six bowl games during his tenure, a note worthy feat considering the Utes had played in just three bowls games in the previous 97 years. His teams posted bowl wins over USC, Arizona and Fresno State.

His best season came in 1994 when the Utes won a then-record 10 games and attained the highest post-season ranking, at the time, in school history climbing to No. 8 in the USA Today/ESPN poll and No. 10 in the AP poll. In conference games, he guided the Utes to a 58-42 record and won a share of two conference championships (1995 in the WAC and 1999 in the Mountain West). McBride excelled in the rivalry games within the state of Utah. His Utes dominated Utah State (11-2), and held their own against perennial power BYU. Utah won six of their last 11 against the Cougars after losing 16 of the previous 18 before he took over.

After leaving Utah Coach McBride took over as the inside linebacker coach at Kentucky in 2002. He returned to the state of Utah in 2004, when he was named head coach of the Weber State Wildcats, a IAA team in the Big Sky conference.
