Hired in 2011, Coach Bishop is the first Varsity Head Football Coach for Regent.
During his first three seasons at Regent, he led a co-op program with other schools in the Tulsa area. Since joining the OSSAA, he has compiled a 30-10 record. In 2016, the Rams went 8-4 reaching the State Quarterfinals. The 2017 team set a new school record with 10 wins finishing the season 10-2. The 2017 Rams reached the State Quarterfinals for the second consecutive year and finished the season ranked no. 3 in the state.
In his seven seasons, Regent has set numerous State and National records on the field. Off the field, the Rams were crowned 2016 Academic State Champions.
Coach Bishop came to Regent from Parkers Chapel High School in Arkansas, whose football program he helped begin in 2003. In the program's sixth year, the Trojans advanced to the Class 3A State Playoffs for the first time.
Bishop's coaching stops also include assistant posts at Star City, Arkansas (varsity wide receivers, junior high offensive coordinator).
Coach Bishop was a varsity letterman in Football, Basketball, and Baseball at Norphlet High School in Arkansas. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Southern Arkansas University in 2002.
Adam and his wife, Kelly, have three children — John David, Judson, and Owen. They reside in Bixby and are members of Evergreen Baptist Church.
Bob Mareburger joined the faculty and coaching staff at Regent in the summer of 2015. In addition to serving as an assistant coach for both varsity football and basketball, he teaches high school math, economics, personal finance, contemporary culture, and entrepreneurship.
Mr. Mareburger came to Regent after retiring as senior vice president of Tulsa-based ONEOK corporation. His nearly 30-year corporate career also included tenures with CITGO Petroleum and as a management consultant.
He is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma with a degree in Petroleum Engineering and an M.B.A. and has been recognized as a Distinguished Alumni of Price College. He is also a graduate of the Harvard Business School Advanced Management Program.
Prior to Regent, Coach Mareburger coached youth and middle school baseball and football and was a NCAA-certified high school basketball tournament team coach.
Mareburger and his wife, Diane, have been part of the Regent community since 2001 along with their two sons who are both Regent graduates.
Through his experiences coaching and working with church-based youth groups, Mareburger discovered a passion for mentoring and encouraging young people to live lives of purpose. He describes his motivation as: “Despite being blessed to work for great companies and leaders who invested in me personally, I believed God was calling me to enter a new season of life. Shortly before making a final decision to retire and make the change, I felt this calling so strongly that I believed not doing so would be disobedient to God’s plan for my life. When it became apparent that this coincided with specific needs at Regent, I knew that it was God who was opening the door. I am now equally blessed to work with an entire Regent community that cares passionately about raising a generation of students who can fulfill the unique purpose God has given to each one.”
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
