Bill Malloy Honorary Room

Coach Bill Malloy honored with room naming in Track & Field and Cross Country office

The Indiana State University Board of Trustees approved naming the Bill Malloy Conference Room in the Indiana State track and field and cross-country office. The naming opportunity is the result of a $25,000 gift from Rich, '77, and Robin Porter in honor of Malloy, who coached and mentored Rich Porter as a member of the track and field team 1973-1977.

Malloy competed at Indiana State in cross-country and track and field 1946-1949 and received the McMillan Award for the most outstanding athlete graduating from Indiana State in 1949. He was hired as the Indiana State head cross-country coach and assistant track and field coach in 1967. A year later, he became head track and field coach and continued in that role until 1979. Malloy coached the Sycamores to ICC titles in 1967 and 1968, and coached the ISU men to the 1976 NCAA Division I Championships. Malloy was inducted into the Indiana State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2010.
