Murray Named Head Coach for UW MEN’S GOLF
University of Washington Husky Golf announced last month that Alan Murray has been named UW Head Men’s Golf Coach. Coach Murray comes to the UW from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and will become the 10th head coach in the history of the Huskies’ program. Alan spent the last six years at UAB, including three years as head coach. During his time there, the program qualified for the NCAA Championships each year, including winning the program’s first ever NCAA Regional Championship at the 2015 Bremerton Regional. In just three years as head coach, he led UAB to their 2nd and 3rd highest NCAA finishes in school history, and was named the 2014 National Coach of the Year by Golfweek. “I am very excited to get started at UW. It is obviously one of the premier programs in the country and I am really fortunate to be walking into a great situation. The work Matt, Michael, Scott and the UW Athletic department have done is nothing short of phenomenal. UW provides college golfers with an unmatched experience on their journey to earn their college degree. It will be a total team effort – Michael, Scott, our guys, all of the Husky golf family and I – are going to continue the great momentum our program has. Our goal will be to continue graduating our guys, being the best students we can while competing for the highest honors in college golf. We have been nationally competitive for a sustained period of time now and the next step for us is to win a national championship. That will remain the goal always. It will take a lot of hard work, time and commitment from the entire UW family to accomplish that but the journey is what makes it all worthwhile. We will strive to make UW proud and do things the right way,” says Coach Murray.
