He remained in the WCAC until he joined the Pacific Coast Athletic Association, now known as the Big West Conference, in 1969 for football and other sports in 1971. As Pacific Football evolved over the years, the program produced a number of coaches who later rose to the NFL and other notables. Stagg coached with great success, including the West Coast Conference championship in football in 1969, 1971 and 1972, and two national championships in 1973 and 1974.
In 1950, Pacific left the WCAC to compete for the first time in the California Basketball Association (CBA). After two seasons, the C BA changed its name to West Coast Athletic Conference and in 1952 Pacific joined the Conference, which soon became East Coast Conference (ECC) and in 1953 became part of the California Basketball League (ECL), and in 1952 it participated in a merger between the WCC and the other sports conferences in the state, the California Athletic Association, which soon became the West Coast Conference (WCACC), now West Coast Conference, or W CC. In 1953, after helping found the Big West Conference for football, men's and women's basketball, basketball and baseball, San Jose State also left the United States in 1950 to join the WCC.
The college opened the first medical school on the West Coast in 1858 and was called the University of Pacific Medical School. In 1925, the San Jose campus was sold to Santa Clara College, which moved it to another campus and renamed it Bellarmine College Preparatory.
The small private school in the Pacific was founded as the first medical school on the West Coast and was home to the University of California, San Francisco Medical School and the California Institute of Technology. Originally based in Santa Clara, the university moved to San Jose in the 1950s, making it the oldest public university in California and one of only a handful of public universities in North America. In the 1960s and 1970s, the university moved again, this time to its current location, and opened the first music conservatory on the West Coast.
The Pacific is the birthplace of the University of California, San Francisco Medical School and the California Institute of Technology. In the 1950s, the two schools and San Jose State University merged to form the California Basketball Association. The Pacific Tigers basketball team, which plays both home games at the Chiles Center, has been a member of the West Coast Conference since 1984.
The university's two national championships came after the school advanced to the NCAA Division Four I Basketball Tournaments for men and women, while both sports have appeared in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) National Championship Game. The Tigers made their first appearance nationally in a 25-year series for both schools that ended in their final 2012-13 season.
Stripes of a Tiger will trace the football history, legacy and coaching tribe that spawned the University of the Pacific, but it has more than that. Strips of Tiger tells the story of a college football program that has slipped out of time and economy and into oblivion, while its football legacy lives on in the coaching careers of the men who have developed there.
