Scott to resign as Rice men's golf coach
Monday, May 9, 2011
Drew Scott has announced he will resign from the helm of the Rice University men’s golf team at the end of the season, after six years with the program. Scott first will accompany senior Michael Whitehad to the NCAA Regional Championship later this month.
Scott was named the Conference USA Coach of the Year in 2010, the same year he guided the Owls to two tournament victories and a tie for second at the conference championship, the best finish for Rice since the 1930s.
The Owls scored their best finish for the 2010-11 season at the Border Olympcis, where they finished fourth. Rice shot a school-record, final-round 274 at that tournament as Whitehead won his first collegiate title. Rice is ranked No. 130 by Golfweek.
“We thank Drew for his leadership of the Rice golf program over the last six years,” said Rice University Director of Athletics Rick Greenspan. “As Drew and his wife start their married life together in Oregon, we wish him the best of luck.”
Scott’s wife, Ria Quiazon, is the head women’s golf coach at the University of Oregon.
