Bishop came to Chapman with the revival of the program in 1994. Over the last 25 years, the Panthers have won 53 percent of their games. He became the defensive coordinator under Ken Visser in 1997 and continued to serve as the DC upon the arrival of current head coach Bob Owens. 

He has helped the Panthers to their only two NCAA Championship appearances in school history in 2014 and 2017 after they won SCIAC titles in those years.

In 2008, the Panthers allowed just 17.8 points per game - the lowest opponent average in 13 seasons - and in 2007 they ranked No. 42 in Division III in total defense.  Prior to coming to Chapman he coached for 10 years at the college level at Cal State Long Beach and Whittier College. He received both a BA and MA in Physical Education from Long Beach State.
