Last Wednesday Sept. 21, Loyola’s Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Brett Simpson announced Drew Goff as the new head coach of the golf team.

Goff joins Loyola after spending the last four years as an assistant professional at the New Orleans Country Club, according to Loyola Athletics.

Goff replaces Jeff Lorio who accepted the head coaching job at the University of New Orleans earlier this year.

He first played collegiately at Mississippi Gulf Coast College, earning All-region and All-state honors.

He then transferred to William Carey University earning a degree in Business Administration while playing golf from 2007-2009, serving as team captain his senior season.

According to Loyola Athletics, Goff is a Class-A PGA professional and has most recently won the 2016 Gulf Coast States Antigua/Haas-Jordan Pro-Pro Championship at the University Club of Baton Rouge.

Goff will join Loyola’s golf team on October 2 prior to the men and women teams’ Spring Hill Tournament October 3-4.
