Dr. Peter Mullins was UBC’s longest serving basketball coach. He was well-loved and respected, and had an enormous impact on generations of UBC basketball players.

Peter’s men’s basketball teams won seven Canada West championships and two Canadian championships – in 1970 and 1972.

He was also the coach of the UBC track and field team for nine years, and taught in the Faculty of Physical Education until his retirement in the early 1980s. A former Olympian, he is a member of both the BC Basketball Hall of Fame and the UBC Sports Hall of Fame.

Peter passed away at the age of 86 years old on April 13, 2012 in Sydney, Australia.

The Peter Mullins Memorial Thunderbird Men’s Basketball Endowment was established in 2009, led by members of the 1970 Thunderbirds and bringing together supporters from all eras of Peter’s coaching career.

Your gift to the endowment will pay tribute to Peter’s legacy and will be used to provide scholarships to members of the men’s varsity basketball team, helping them to achieve excellence in both their academics and their athletics.
