Bob Bodine begins his second season with the Army Football program as the offensive line coach.
In his first year at Army West Point, Bodine helped build an offensive line that opened for holes for the Black Knights to rank fifth in the country in rushing yards per game at 296.5.
Despite using 10 different starting lineups on the offensive line, Army was among the nation’s top running teams.
Bodine helped mentor a offensive line group that saw 13 players see action among the front five and helped Army score 33 rushing touchdowns.
Prior to his arrival at Army, Bodine spent four seasons at The Citadel, three of them as the offensive coordinator and also coached the offensive line.
Under his direction, the Bulldogs were among the most successful rushing teams in the country, ranking as high as fourth at the Football Championship Subdivision level in 2013. Ben Dupree listed seventh nationally with 18 rushing touchdowns.
The 2011 squad landed third in the nation in rushing offense and fourth a year later.
Among the many all-league players mentored by Bodine were center Mike Sellers who received the Jacobs Blocking Award as the top offensive lineman in the Southern Conference and was a consensus first-team All-American in 2012.
Before joining the staff at The Citadel, Bodine spent four seasons as the offensive line coach at the Virginia Military Institute, two of which the Keydets led the nation in rushing.
Bodine began his coaching career at Tulane University, working with the offensive line and long snappers. He moved to Georgia Southern as a graduate assistant with the defensive line before earning a staff position.
At Georgia Southern, Bodine was responsible for outside linebackers, wide receivers and slot backs during his six seasons.
Bodine moved to Jackson State as the offensive line coach and Bethune-Cookman as the slotbacks coach and recruiting coordinator before accepting a position at VMI.
A three-year letterwinner and two-year starter as an offensive guard at Tulane, Bodine earned his degree in psychology in 1993.
Bodine and his wife, Joy, are the parents of twins Gabriel (Jake) and Gracie and reside at West Point.
