Hall of Fame Class of 1998
Head Coach - Football (1993 to 2007)
Assistant Coach - Football (1982 to 1984)
Sonny Lubick first came to Colorado State University in 1982 as the offensive coordinator for Leon Fuller's original coaching staff. Following highly successful assistant coaching stints at Stanford (1985 to 1988) and Miami (1989-1992), Lubick returned to become the head coach of the Rams in 1993. His success is among the greatest of any head football coach in school history, winning six conference championships and taking nine of his 15 teams to bowl games. During his career as head coach of the Rams, Lubick produced five All-Americans and seven academic All-Americans along with 61 first-team all-conference players and 112 academic all-conference players.
Over the 15 seasons he coached the Rams, Lubick's record of 108-74 made him the second-winningest coach in school history behind Harry Hughes. Three of his teams finished the season in the top-25 national rankings (1994, 1997 and 2000) while Lubick was named the conference coach of the year in 1994, '97, '99 and 2000. In 1994, Sports Illustrated named him the National Coach of the Year.
Under Lubick's tenure, CSU built the McGraw Athletic Center, renovated Moby Arena and Hughes Stadium received its largest update and expansion in its history. The field at the stadium was re-named in his honor as Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium. When Lubick left after the 2007 season, he had produced more than 40 professional football players in the NFL.
