UI to Begin Search for New Men's Golf Coach

May 14, 2007

IOWA CITY — The University of Iowa Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will begin a national search for a new men’s head golf coach immediately as part of a reorganization of varsity men’s golf program and the day-to-day operation of Finkbine Golf Course.

The UI will be seeking a replacement for Terry Anderson, the UI’s former head men’s golf coach and director of golf operations. Anderson resigned from the positions earlier this spring. A search for the individual who will oversee the operations of the UI’s award-winning championship golf course will begin at the end of the 2007 golf year.

“We see this as an exciting opportunity and a move that is consistent with our department-wide strategic planning process,” said UI Director of Athletics Gary Barta.

“We want to continue to improve what we recognize as one of the premier golf courses in Iowa. At the same time, we must become more competitive in the Big Ten Conference and nationally in men’s golf.”
