OU taps former Georgia assistant Hybl
Monday, June 22, 2009
Ryan Hybl has been named men’s head golf coach at the University of Oklahoma.
Formerly the assistant golf coach at the University of Georgia, his alma mater, Hybl was on staff for five straight top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championship, two SEC titles and the 2008 NCAA East Regional Championship. He is already developing strategies for Oklahoma.
“It’s my job to get them prepared mentally and physically, and to help them manage the golf course,” he explained. “We want them to become better golfers and better men. Academics will be a big part of that; it has always been a big part of my life. It’s all about expectations and mine are very high that we will excel in the classroom.”
Hybl, who also earned several top-10 finishes on the Nationwide, Hooters and Tar Heel tours during the past four years, said he was attracted to the new position because of the leadership in the athletic department as well as the Oklahoma name.
“The potential of this Oklahoma program is so exciting,” Hybl said. “I could not be more thrilled for this opportunity and enthusiastic about our ability to play for championships.”
