Appalachian State University announced Tuesday that longtime director of golf Bill Dicus will become the full-time head coach of Appalachian’s men’s golf program and a nationwide search for a full-time women’s golf coach will begin immediately.
“In looking at our peers both in the Southern Conference and across the region, it became clear that very few successful golf programs have only one head coach to oversee both their men’s and women’s teams,” ASU director of athletics Charlie Cobb said. “We strive to give all 20 of our intercollegiate athletics programs the opportunity to compete for championships and are excited to be able to invest in full-time head coaches for both the men’s and women’s golf teams.”
Dicus is in his 15th year at Appalachian, coaching the women’s team since his arrival in 1993 and heading the men’s program since 1995.
The men’s team is ranked No. 213 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, while the women are No. 193.
