Taking on more administrative duties, longtime Georgia College golf head coach Jimmy Wilson has announced he will step away from the coaching ranks.
Wilson, also an associate athletics director, will focus more of his efforts on athletics administration and oversee all compliance activity, as well as day-to-day internal operations. Current assistant coach Pat Garrett has been tabbed to take over as interim head coach.
Wilson is one of the most decorated coaches in school history, winning Golf Coaches Association of America region coach of the year on three different occasions. He has also earned three Peach Belt Conference coach of the year trophies, coming in 2000, 2008 and 2011.
In Wilson’s 19 seasons at the helm, the Bobcats have advanced to NCAA postseason play in the past 18. Twenty-four student-athletes have been guided to All-America honors by Wilson, as well as five winning PBC Golfer of the Year honors.
