Lloyd Fobi is in his fourth season as the head coach of the Willamette University men’s soccer team in 2014. Under Fobi's guidance, the Bearcats have achieved a 26-22-7 overall record and a 18-18-3 record in Northwest Conference play.
This past season, the Bearcats produced a 10-6-3 record (.605) for the team's top winning percentage since going 13-6-2 (.667) in 1991. The Bearcats were 6-5-3 in the NWC. For the second year in a row Willamette claimed a 3-2 overtime victory over Whitworth University. Willamette won at archrival Linfield College 3-2 in two overtimes.
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, and two wins over Linfield.
Over the past two seasons, Willamette's combined record is 20-13-5 (.592), including 13-10-5 in the NWC.
An entertaining and aggressive team, Willamette led the NWC with 36 goals scored. Senior Mike McGrew became the first Bearcat to be named First Team All-NWC since 2003.
Willamette finished the 2011 season with a 6-9-2 overall record, including 5-8-1 in the NWC -- an improvement of three overall wins and four conference wins from the previous year. The Bearcats notched a 2-1 win over eventual NWC champion Pacific Lutheran University, while earning a pair of 3-0 wins over Linfield.
Prior to arriving at Willamette, Fobi was an assistant men’s soccer coach at nearby Corban University for a year and a half. He has also coached with the Oregon Olympic Development Program.
As a college player, Fobi competed for Oregon State University in Corvallis, Ore. He played on two OSU teams that were nationally ranked (2003, 2005), and helped the Beavers reach the NCAA Tournament in 2003.
