Former Northumberland county player Brad Robinson has taken up the role of head men’s and women’s golf coach at Lincoln Memorial University.
Brad, who studied for his masters degree at Lincoln Memorial, has built an impressive coaching CV in his time with the teams.
“Being named Lincoln Memorial University’s head men’s and women’s golf coach is a very exciting opportunity,” said Brad. “It has been an honour to serve as an assistant to coach Muncy and serve the LMU Golf programmes for the past four seasons. I look forward to continuing the legacy that coach Muncy has created, producing exceptional student-athletes on the golf course, in the classroom and in the community. I’d like to thank coach Muncy, the LMU Athletics leadership and all former players, as well as Dr Clayton Hess (LMU president), Dr Jody Goins (LMU executive vice president for administration) and the LMU Board of Trustees for affording me this opportunity.”
“Coach Robinson is ready for and deserves this opportunity,” said Jody Goins. “He has been studious in his preparation and I’m certain LMU Golf will continue to achieve championship-level excellence in the classroom, on the course, and in the community under his leadership. Our student-athletes will benefit immensely from coach Robinson’s focus on character development and career preparation while pursuing an NCAA Division II national championship.”
Education has been a cornerstone of Brad’s career. He holds a Master of Business Administration in Sports Management from Lincoln Memorial University, where he graduated with a perfect GPA of 4.0. He also earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sports Management from Lenoir-Rhyne University.
Brad’s coaching journey at LMU began in August 2019, when he joined as a graduate assistant coach. In July 2021, he was promoted to assistant men’s golf coach, where he continued to contribute significantly to the programme’s success. He has been a key part of the team which led LMU to its first-ever Golfstat and Bushnell Coaches poll #1 ranking. Under his guidance, the team achieved numerous victories, including winning the Men’s SAC Golf Championship in 2021.
As a player, he was a two-time collegiate tournament winner and achieved 10 top-five finishes and 19 top-10 finishes at Lenoir-Rhyne University. He was also a two-time All-South Atlantic Conference performer and the Player of the Year at Lenoir-Rhyne University in 2018.
