Robert “Bob” McKillop (born July 13, 1950) is an American college basketball coach and current head coach of the Davidson College Wildcats men’s basketball team. In 1989, McKillop returned to Davidson as head coach. He is the longest-tenured coach in Davidson history, and has won more games there than any coach. His 230 Southern Conference wins are more than any coach in league history. He has been the SoCon Coach of the Year seven times, has won thirteen conference division titles, seven tournament championships, and taken his team to seven NCAA tournaments and four postseason NITs. All this winning hasn’t come at any academic sacrifice, as 95 per cent of his Davidson lettermen have graduated. In 2006 the Wildcats won the Southern Conference tournament and went on to face No. 2 seeded Ohio St. in the NCAA tournament. Fifteenth seeded Davidson led 29–25 at halftime before falling 70–62. On January 27, 2007, McKillop reached 300 wins with a 79–59 victory over Western Carolina in Belk Arena. On February 26, 2011 he reached 400 wins with a 78-67 victory over UNC Greensboro.
