Bullis has spent the past eight seasons leading the program. He took the reigns following Lance Leipold's historic run after previously serving as the team's defensive line coach.

Bullis compiled an overall record of of 78-13 while leading the program. He led the Warhawks to three semifinal appearances, five conference titles, and a national runner up finish while in charge.
