Paul Schudel is in his fourth season as an assistant coach at Virginia. He is in charge of UVa's offensive line.
Last season, Schudel coached guard Noel LaMontagne and center John St. Clair, both of whom were named first-team All-Americans. They are the first two Cavalier offensive linemen in school history to earn that distinction in the same season.
In 1998, the Cavalier offensive line paved the way for an offense that led the ACC in rushing yards per game (213.1 ypg), rushing touchdowns (27), yards per rush (5.0), yards per play (6.1) and first downs per game (21.4).
Schudel joined the Cavalier coaching staff after serving two years as offensive coordinator and line coach at Illinois. Before that, he was the head coach at Ball State from 1985-94.
Schudel's 10 Ball State teams compiled an overall record of 60-48-4. The Cardinals were 46-28-4 during his last seven seasons as head coach. Schudel was named Mid-American Conference Football Coach of the Year in 1989 and 1993 after leading the Cardinals to the conference championship both seasons. Ball State participated in the 1989 California Bowl and the 1993 Las Vegas Bowl.
Schudel was the offensive line coach at Michigan from 1975-84. The Wolverines won five Big Ten Championships in that span and participated in bowl games every season, including five Rose Bowl appearances. He coached eight Michigan All-Americans.
He was the offensive coordinator and offensive tackles and tight ends coach at Syracuse in 1974, the offensive coordinator and line coach at William & Mary from 1972-73, the offensive line coach at Colorado State from 1970-71, and the offensive coordinator and line coach at New Hampshire from 1968-69. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant coach at Miami (Ohio) from 1966-67.
Schudel received his bachelor of science degree in mathematics with a minor in health and physical education from Miami (Ohio) in 1966. He received his master of education degree in educational administration from the same institution in 1968.
A native of Toledo, Ohio, Schudel lettered three times at offensive tackle for Miami and was one of the team's tri-captains in 1965 when the Redskins were Mid-American Conference co-champions. Schudel was a 1965 honorable mention Academic All-American.
