Hall of Champions

Bill Yeoman


After bringing FCA to the city of Houston and the University of Houston, college football coach Bill Yeoman continued to find ways to minister through sports. The 2001 National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame inductee impacted many young men and women with his godly leadership on the Houston campus and through his deep involvement with the ministry of FCA.

Yeoman amassed 160 wins at Houston in his 25-year head-coaching career, including four Southwest Conference titles and 11 bowl berths. The coaching legend is regarded as an on-field innovator having invented the Veer Option and Wing T offensive schemes. Yeoman played a prominent role in the racial integration of collegiate athletics in the South by being the first coach in the state of Texas and the Southwest Conference to sign an African-American athlete to a scholarship.
