Utah Valley University has announced that former women’s head coach Chris Curran will lead the men’s program in the fall as former BYU head coach Sue Nyhus takes the reigns of the women’s program.

Curran, who came to Utah Valley in August of 2009, previously was the assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s teams at his alma mater, Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Okla. Utah Valley had three top-5 finishes under Curran’s direction during the 2009-10 season.

Nyhus has spent the past 11 years as the head women’s coach at BYU while still managing to maintain her own game. She was named the 1999 Utah Women’s Golf Association Player of the Year as well as the Female Golfer of the Decade by the UGA.

“This is really a great time and opportunity for our golf programs,” athletic director Mike Jacobsen said. “With the strengths of both Coach Curran and Coach Nyhus, I see our recruiting, our fundraising and our overall team success really taking off.”
