University of Minnesota director of athletics Joel Maturi today announced the hiring of Michele Redman as head women’s golf coach. Assistant coaches will be added to each staff in the coming weeks.

“We are excited about the future of Golden Gopher Golf here at the University of Minnesota,” said Maturi. “We were fortunate to have an excellent pool of candidates but Michele and John shared a commitment, vision and passion that separated them from the others.”

Redman, currently competing in her 20th season on the LPGA Tour, is a graduate of Indiana University, where she was a four-time All-Big Ten selection, a two-time All-American and the medalist of the 1987 Big Ten Championships.

“Michele brings with her an unbelievable wealth of golf knowledge and experience to the University of Minnesota,” Maturi said. “Our women’s program is coming off its best season in history and I have no doubt that Michele’s background of teaching will continue that progression.”

She led the team in stroke average in two of her four seasons in Bloomington and helped the Hoosiers claim two Big Ten Conference titles. IU also competed in three NCAA Championships in her time on campus, including an 11th place finish at the 1985 Championships.

“I am so excited to be selected as the new Head Coach for the University of Minnesota Women’s Golf program,” said Redman, who now resides in Minnesota. “It is an honor for which I am truly grateful. I feel privileged to be able to guide and encourage young women as student-athletes throughout their college experience.”

A member of the Indiana University Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame and the National College Golf Coaches Hall of Fame, Redman comes to Gold Country the winner of three Futures Tour events, two LPGA tour events and ranked 27th in all-time career money earnings in the history of the LPGA Tour. She has been a member of four United States Solheim Cup teams as well as the 2011 United States Handa Cup team.
