Nicki Cutler has resigned after four seasons as the head women's coach at Princeton, the school announced.

"I would like to thank Princeton University for giving me the opportunity to be a head coach," Cutler said. "It has been a privilege and an honor to work with such an outstanding group of young women. I am proud of what we have accomplished, and I will leave with many great memories of being a Tiger."

Under Cutler, Princeton finished among the top three in the Ivy League in each of the past four seasons. The Tigers were No. 96 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings. Four of her players, led by recent graduate Kelly Shon, a two-time Ivy League Player of the Year, made first-team all-conference.

"We'd like to thank Nicki for her service to Princeton and to the golf program," said Gary Walters, Princeton's athletic director. "We'd also like to wish her the best as she transitions to the next chapter of her life."

Cutler, a Vanderbilt alumna, played on the LPGA and Futures tours before turning to coaching.
