Oklahoma State Director of Athletics Mike Holder has announced head coaching changes within OSU's golf programs.
Alan Bratton, a former OSU player and assistant coach who spent the past two years as the head coach of the OSU women's program, will assume the head coaching duties of the men's program. Women's assistant coach Courtney Jones is being elevated to head coach of the Cowgirls.
In his two seasons at the helm of the Cowgirl program, Bratton's squads combined for five victories, including the 2013 Big 12 Championship.
Prior to his time with the Cowgirls, Bratton enjoyed a seven-year run as the associate head coach for both the men's and women's programs. During that time, the Cowboys won their 10th national title in 2006 and produced their eighth NCAA champion in Jonathan Moore. Additionally, the Cowboys finished in the top five at the NCAA Championship on five occasions and captured six conference crowns.
Jones just completed her second year at Oklahoma State. She is a 2006 graduate of Tulsa, where she was named an All-American Scholar Athlete by the National Golf Coaches Association in 2003 and 2004. She served as a graduate assistant at TU in 2006.
She came to Stillwater in 2011 after working as the senior tournament director for the American Junior Golf Association, a position she had held since 2007. While working at the AJGA, she helped plan and run 39 national junior golf championships and served as tournament director for 21 of those events.
