Goethals Resigns from Men's Golf Position
Vice President Ted Leland announced on March 5, that Men's Golf Head Coach Brandon Goethals has resigned his position at the university to take a job with the PGA Tour. Goethals resignation will take effect on Mar. 10. Assistant Coach AJ Hohn will act as the interim head coach and a national search for a new men's golf coach will begin at the conclusion of the season.
"We are thankful for the time that Brandon has spent here at Pacific," said Leland. "He has done a great job with our student-athletes, leading them on the course and in the classroom. This is a great opportunity for him and we wish him the best."
Goethals spent eight full seasons at the helm of the Tigers' golf program, leading Pacific back to the top of the Big West Conference. After finishing just off the pace for four-straight years, Goethals and his Tigers broke through in 2012-13 with a championship finish at the Big West Tournament to earn the program's second conference title and first since 1997. In addition to taking the team title, Goethals helped guide then-sophomore Eric Sugimoto to Pacific's second-straight individual championship.
Overall, Goethals led the Tigers to a pair of NCAA Regional berths as a team while also guiding two individuals to NCAA Regional play. During his tenure, he coached his players to 14 all-conference honors and seven NCAA Academic All-America awards.
