EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The University of Southern Indiana men's golf program will be under new leadership for the 2018-19 campaign with the selection of Mike Reynolds to take the helm as the seventh head coach in the program's history.

In conjunction with being USI men's golf coach, Reynolds is the Eagle Valley Golf Course general manager/director of golf, holding the position since 2017. He also was the Director of Golf at the Evansville Country Club (2003-16) before joining the staff at Eagle Valley.
