Nicole Hollingsworth announced today that she will be stepping down from her position as women’s golf coach at The University of Toledo to pursue other opportunities.
She had served as the women’s golf coach at UT since 2003.“I am proud of the program we developed at The University of Toledo over the past 15 years,” Hollingsworth said. “The women’s golf program has excelled in the classroom and on the golf course, and I am very pleased with and thankful for those accomplishments.”
“We thank Nicole for her service and dedication to our women’s golf program,” Vice President and Director of Athletics Mike O’Brien said. “We wish her well in her future endeavors.”
O’Brien said Senior Associate Athletic Director Kelly Andrews will supervise the program and travel with the team to its tournaments until a new head coach is hired. Graduate assistant Sathika Ruenreong will continue helping with the program.
The search for a new coach will begin soon, O’Brien said, adding that the University does not anticipate hiring a coach until after the 2017-18 golf season concludes later this spring.
Hollingsworth served 15 years as the program’s head coach. Her teams finished in second place at the Mid-American Conference Championships in 2013, 2014 and 2016. She was named MAC Coach of the Year in 2014 and 2016.
