After 15 seasons as head coach of the Denver men’s golf program, Eric Hoos has resigned. Current Denver women’s golf associate head coach Erik Billinger has been named as Hoos' replacement.

Hoos arrived at Denver in 1999 after previously serving as an assistant coach for Colorado and led the Pioneers to three conference titles, nine NCAA regional appearances, nine tournament wins and 17 individual tournament titles.

“The University of Denver community thanks Eric for his years of dedication and the leadership, passion and energy he provided to the golf program,” said Peg Bradley-Doppes, vice chancellor of athletics and recreation. “We wish him much success with his future endeavors.”

Billinger, a 2002 Pioneer grad, spent two seasons splitting time between the Denver's men's and women's golf programs, supporting both head coaches with recruiting and practice planning after his graduation. During his Pioneer career, Billinger was a two-time NCAA individual qualifier, a Sun Belt Conference individual champion (2001) and an Academic All-American (2002).
