Three-time national champion coach Mike McGraw is in his fifth season leading the Bears and his 14th season as a Division I head coach. McGraw joined the program on June 16, 2014, following one season as assistant coach at Alabama, where he helped lead the Crimson Tide to the 2014 NCAA Championship title.
McGraw has 21 years of experience coaching at the Division I level, including eight seasons as Oklahoma State men’s golf head coach, and he’s led teams to the NCAA Championship in 19 of those 21 seasons. In addition to three national titles, more than half of McGraw’s 21 years have ended with top-five finishes at the NCAA Championship, including 11 times in the top five and three times as national runner-up.
McGraw’s teams have won 40 tournament titles and advanced to 10 NCAA Championships in his 12 seasons as a Division I men’s golf head coach. He’s coached players to 39 individual medalist honors and produced 28 All-Americans.
Ryan Blagg, the 2017 Jan Strickland Award winner as the nation’s outstanding assistant coach, is in his seventh season with the Baylor men’s golf program and his ninth season as a Division I coach. The Bears have advanced to NCAA Regional play in all six of Blagg’s seasons, including a school-record streak of three consecutive NCAA Championship berths.
