Hall of Fame
Mules Football - 1983-96
From 1983-1996, Terry Noland posted a record of 78-65-2. Noland owns the school records for wins, seasons as head coach, and conference titles, and he is responsible for getting Central Missouri State on the map as one of the premier programs in the Midwest. Noland’s squads won or shared four Missouri Intercollegiate Athletics Association titles (1983, 1986, 1987, and 1988) and produced 15 All-Americans.
Named MIAA Coach of the Year in 1986 when his Mules won their first undisputed league crown since 1926 and tied the school record for wins with nine, Noland also had three players earn Academic All-America honors, and he sent nine players on to the professional ranks. His 1986 Mules football team has been inducted into the CMSU Athletic Hall of Fame, as have three of his former players--Scott Loveland, Bart Woods, and Jeff Wright.
