Playing career

College

Brock played football at Jesuit High School in his hometown of Portland before attending the University of Colorado at Boulder where he played under coaches Bill Mallory and Chuck Fairbanks. He was selected to the first team All-American by The Sporting News. as a senior in 1979.[2] He was also selected as first team all Big Eight Conference and the John Mack Award winner, Colorado's award for offensive MVP.[2]

NFL

Brock played for the New Orleans Saints from 1980 to 1992. He finished his career with the San Diego Chargers from 1993 to 1995. He played in Super Bowl XXIX for the Chargers. Stan's older brother Pete also played in the NFL for the Patriots, starting at center in Super Bowl XX, which coincidentally was played in New Orleans.

Coaching career

After his playing career, Brock became a coach in the Arena Football League (AFL), where he served as the head coach of the Portland Forest Dragons (1997–1999) and the Los Angeles Avengers (2000–2001). He also was a color analyst for radio broadcasts of Saints games for several seasons, succeeding Archie Manning, who resigned position when son Peyton entered the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts.

On January 29, 2007, he was named the head coach at Army after the resignation of Bobby Ross. During his time as head coach, the Black Knights posted a 6–18 record and lost twice to Navy by a combined score of 72–3.[3] On December 8, 2008, [4] Brock was fired by the USMA on December 12, 2008 after two years as head coach, and six days after the Black Knights completed their 2008 season with a 34–0 loss to archrival Navy.[1]

Development and implementation of the “Brock Bone” offense

Following a 3–9 record in his first season as Army’s head coach, Brock and his staff decided to change his offensive system from the pro set to something more similar to Navy's triple option, something Brock had once described as “a stupid idea.”[5] During spring training for the 2008 season, Brock elected to close spring practices to implement his new offense.[6] The offense Brock developed was dubbed “the Brock Bone” by ESPN commentator Shaun King.[7] The Brock Bone seems to employ a higher percentage of fullback dives than are ordinarily seen in a triple option offense. Coach Brock has commented, “People think that we're just calling fullback dive, but when that’s what they give you, that’s what they give you.”[8] Army ran the Brock Bone during the 2008 NCAA Division I FBS football season and finished the season ranked 110th out of 119 NCAA Division I FBS teams in total offense.[9]

Broadcasting career

On January 14, 2015, Portland, Oregon television station KOIN hired Brock as sports anchor.[10]

Brock and his wife, Lori, have four daughters: Sarah, Jessica, Rachel and Emily.

The team failed to qualify for the playoffs for the fourteenth consecutive season and had the dubious distinction not only of winning only a single game, but winning it by a single point against the equally disappointing Jets, who like the Saints had widely been predicted before the season to advance to their first playoff appearance since 1969.

1993 San Diego Chargers season

The 1993 San Diego Chargers season was the team's 34th season, their 33rd in San Diego, and 24th in the National Football League.

The 1993 season began with the team trying to improve on their 11–5 record in 1992, however, They failed to do so and missed the playoffs by only one game and ended up with an 8-8 record.

1995 San Diego Chargers season

The 1995 San Diego Chargers season was the team's 36th, its 26th in the National Football League (NFL), and its 34th in San Diego.

The season began with the team as reigning AFC champions and trying to improve on their 11–5 record in 1994. After starting 4-7, the Chargers won their final five games to get into the playoffs. It ended in the first round with a loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

That game would mark the last time the Chargers would make the playoffs until the 2004 NFL season.

The 2008 Army Black Knights football team represented the United States Military Academy (USMA or "West Point") during the 2008 NCAA Division I FBS football season. Army competed as an Independent, with no conference affiliation.

The team was led by second-year head coach Stan Brock, who, amidst pressure from critics, had changed from the pro style offense to a triple option-like offensive scheme after the previous season. Some pundits dubbed it the "Brock Bone" or "quadruple" option, due to an added passing element. The team finished the season with a disappointing 3–9 record, which culminated in a 34–0 rout by archrival Navy. Brock was subsequently fired and replaced by former Cal Poly head coach, Rich Ellerson. The 2008 Army–Navy Game was the first shut-out of Army by Navy since 1978. One consolation was that in the game's final play, Army fullback Collin Mooney, in the last play of his college football career, broke the school record for single-season rushing by a single yard.
