Moan returns to college golf as Bradley coach

After a five-year hiatus from collegiate golf, Mary Moan will assume head coaching responsibilities at Bradley University. Moan previously coached at Yale from 2000 to 2005.

Moan is a 1997 graduate of Princeton University, where she won 16 individual titles as a collegiate golfer. Moan served as an assistant coach at Florida for two years before taking the helm at Yale. During her five seasons with the Bulldogs, Moan led the team to nine regular-season tournament titles and two Ivy League championships (2002, ’03). She left Yale in 2005 to pursue a career on the Duramed Futures Tour. In the past five years, Moan has won four times on the Moonlight Golf Tour and finished in the top 10 twice in SunCoast Ladies Series events.

“Mary Moan is incredibly hard-working, dynamic, talented and a risk taker,” Bradley Director of Athletics Michael Cross said. “Almost immediately after her collegiate career, she achieved significant success as a coach, yet had the guts to pursue her dreams of a professional playing career. Now, as she returns to collegiate coaching, her professional playing experience will make her coaching even better, and Bradley women’s golf will be the beneficiary.”

Bradley finished the season at No. 135 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.
