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
