Teichert leaves Michigan after 16 years
Thursday, June 25, 2009
Kathy Teichert resigned as women’s coach at Michigan Friday after 16 seasons with the Wolverines.
Teichert led Michigan to 24 team titles and five trips to the NCAA regionals, including a berth in the NCAA Championship in 2002. The Wolverines finished the 2008-09 season No. 54 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.
“I’ve been privileged and honored to have been at the University of Michigan for the last 16 years,” said Teichert. “In that time, I have coached many terrific student-athletes who have distinguished themselves in the classroom, on the golf course and in life. I wish the program every success in the future.”
Michigan posted seven top-5 finishes at the Big Ten Conference Championships during Teichert’s tenure, including a program-best runner-up finish in ’05. She was named the co-Big Ten Coach of the Year in 1996.
This past season, Michigan finished seventh at the Big Ten Championship and 17th at the NCAA Central Regional.
