LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- After two seasons on the job, head golf coach Trevor Potts has decided to step down from coaching to pursue other opportunities in the golf profession.
Potts became the third head coach in the history of the programs in 2011 after enjoying a successful four-year run as a student-athlete on the golf team at Covenant. This past season, Potts helped lead a pair of golfers to the NCCAA National Championships. There, Trey Patterson finished sixth to claim the school's first golf All-American honor. Potts also had two GCAA/PING NCAA All-South Region performers in 2012-13 in Patterson and Levi Nix.
"I first want to thank Covenant College for allowing me to have this opportunity to coach at a great school and golf program," said Potts. "Coaching at Covenant has been a great opportunity to give back to the experience that I was able to have while attending Covenant. I am going to miss the men and women on the teams that taught me so much over the years. I know the next coach will take over a great group of student-athletes that love the Lord, great people and great golfers."
Potts recently took a full-time position with the Lookout Mountain Golf Club as its assistant pro, while continuing to pursue a professional golf career.
"We are really happy for Trevor," said Director of Athletics Kyle Taylor. "The opportunity to be an Assistant Pro at a quality golf club is a great stepping stone for Trevor on his professional track. He will be sorely missed in the athletic department at Covenant College, and in the golf program. He has led both our golf programs well for the past two years, and we wish him well in his new endeavor."
The search for a new men's and women's head golf coach will begin immediately. The position will be split into two part-time assignments, one for the women's team and one for the men's program. Those interested in the openings can apply here.
