Lloyd Fobi recently completed his second year as the head coach of the Willamette University men’s soccer team. Prior to arriving at Willamette, Fobi was an assistant men’s soccer coach at nearby Corban University for a year and a half. He also has been a coach with the Oregon Olympic Development Program.
Under Fobi's guidance, the Bearcats have achieved a 16-16-4 overall record and a 12-13-3 record in Northwest Conference play: the best two-year record for Willamette men's soccer since 2000-2001.
In 2012, Willamette earned a 10-7-2 overall record, including 7-5-2 (4th place) in the NWC, for the Bearcats' first winning season since 2000. Highlighting the year were a 3-2 overtime win over then-undefeated, 10th ranked Whitworth University, and a second consecutive season sweep of archrival Linfield College.Read Full Bio
As a college player, Fobi competed for the Oregon State University in Corvallis, Ore. He played on two teams that were nationally ranked (2003, 2005) and helped the Beavers qualify for the NCAA Tournament in 2003. Fobi hopes to continue the progress Willamette has made in recent years, while adding his own approach to the game. He also has coached with the Oregon Olympic Development Program.
