Andy Crabtree Named ODU Women's Head Golf Coach
Old Dominion announced Monday that Andy Crabtree has been named head coach for the Lady Monarch golf program. Crabtree comes to ODU after serving as an assistant coach for Texas A&M's women's golf program the past two seasons.
"I found Andy's vision for the program aligned with our core values. He has been described as a 'player's coach' and has been quite successful in his own regard in college as well as an amateur golfer. I look forward to the continued success of our program under his leadership," said Bruce Stewart, ODU senior associate athletic director.
During Crabtree's tenure at Texas A&M, the Aggies won a Big 12 championship and posted two top 10 NCAA finishes. In his first year at A&M, he helped the Aggies to individual titles at the 2012 Big 12 championship and the NCAA regional.
Prior to joining A&M, Crabtree served as an assistant coach at Tulsa for four years.
A talented player in his own right, Crabtree was a four-year letter-winner at the University of South Florida and was named the Conference USA Student-Athlete of the Year for golf as a senior. He earned a bachelor's degree in communication and was an Academic All-American in 1999. Following graduation, he qualified for the U.S. Amateur at Pebble Beach and the 2000 British Amateur at Royal Liverpool.
