Wichita State coach resigns


Chris Gomez has resigned his position as head women’s golf coach at Wichita State University, Director of Athletics Jim Schaus announced Oct. 22.

“I would like to thank Wichita State and the community for providing me the opportunity to coach the women’s golf team at Wichita State,” Gomez said. “It is with much regret that I could not attain what I had envisioned for the program.”

Gomez, who took over as head coach in 2004, led the Shockers to 28 top-10 finishes throughout his tenure, including a first-place finish at the 2006 McNeese State Cowgirl Invitational, which was the team’s first win since 1992. Additionally, Gomez coached Catalina Guacaneme to a regular-season stroke average of 77.7 and all-conference honors in 2006-07.

“We appreciate the job Chris has done for the program and wish him the very best,” Schaus said. “We will begin an active national search for a new coach and I am confident we will soon find a quality individual to lead our program at the highest level.”

Wichita State is currently ranked No. 167 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.
