Dunlap played for the Tigers during the 1944 season at shortstop, batting .464 and being chosen first-team All-Conference.

Dunlap returned to Occidental as a coach and professor in 1954. He coached basketball for 16 years, going 205-156 overall and winning five SCIAC championships. In his 30 years as the Tigers’ baseball coach, his teams posted a 510-316 record and won nine conference championships. He also served as Oxy’s athletic director from 1971 to 1976.
