Broce to take the reins at Toledo
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Jamie Broce, a former Indiana assistant, has been named head men’s golf coach at Toledo. Broce will replace Jamie Mauntler, who resigned in May after a nine-year career with the Rockets.
Broce played college golf at Ball State then played professionally for nine years before landing at Indiana. He was the assitant there for four years. This past season, Indiana was runner-up at the Big Ten Championship and advanced to NCAA regional play.
“I’m very excited to become the head coach of the Rockets,” Broce said. “Toledo has such a great golfing heritage, both at UT and in the community. When I was in school, Toledo had a terrific program, one of the best in the (Mid-American Conference). I’m looking forward to working with the players who are there now and developing the program in the years to come. There is a great opportunity for success at UT, and I can’t wait to get started.”
Broce is a co-founder of the Blair/Broce Junior Golf Academy in LaPorte, Ind., and has served as an instructor at golf clinics hosted by the Nationwide and NGA Hooters tours.
“We are very fortunate to have Jamie join our staff,” Toledo Athletic Director Mike O’Brien said. “Jamie has an impressive golf background, both as a player and as a teacher of the game. His experience at Indiana and as a private instructor will greatly benefit our men’s golf program. We look forward to welcoming Jamie into the Rocket family.”
Toledo finished the season ranked No. 163 by Golfweek.
