University of South Florida Athletics Director Mark Harlan announced the hiring of Erika Brennan as the new women’s golf coach Friday.
"We are very excited to welcome Erika back to the Bay Area and to have her leading our women's golf program," Harlan said. "Erika brings tremendous experience and a track record of success, having previously led programs at Southern Mississippi and St. Leo. She will be an excellent leader for the student-athletes in our program."
Brennan takes over for former head coach Tiffany Prats, who was not retained/fired/resigned last Monday.
"I am so excited to be leading the USF program and to be able to return our family to our own backyard. USF Athletics is at an all-time high with incredible momentum and the women's golf program has a tremendous upside for what we can achieve. I would like to thank Mark Harlan for believing in me and giving me this awesome opportunity to join the Bulls. I can't wait to meet the Bulls Family and get started."
Brennan was at Southern Miss for the last two-and-a-half years where the Golden Eagles won six tournaments under her and finished 3rd in the C-USA championship in her first year, which was the program’s highest finish ever.
Prior Southern Miss, Brennan was the head coach at St. Leo University from 2008-2013. She turned the program into one of the top Division II schools in the country, making the NCAA tournament three times in five years.
Welcome aboard Coach Brennan.
