Ryan Ressa has been named the new head men’s golf coach at Long Beach State. Ressa comes to the 49ers after assistant coaching stints at UCLA, Duke, San Diego and Washington State.

Ressa will replace Bill Poutre, who resigned at the end of the season. Ressa most recently helped lead UCLA to a 16th-place finish at the NCAA Championship. The Bruins ended the season No. 9 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.

“Ryan is a terrific addition to Long Beach State Athletics and the men’s golf program,” Director of Athletics Vic Cegles said. “His experiences coaching nationally-ranked teams and involving community in the effort will be a great asset as we continue to pursue championships and national recognition.”

Ressa played two years of collegiate golf at Washington State, and before that won the 2002 California Junior College State Championship while playing for College of the Desert.

Long Beach State finished the 2009-10 season No. 109 in Golfweek’s Rankings.
