NEWARK, Del. -- The University of Delaware announced today that the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics will reorganize the leadership structure of the men's and women's golf programs in the summer of 2017 and moving forward the men's and women's golf programs will be led by a single coaching staff. Under the consolidated structure, current women's coach Patty Post has been promoted to Director of Golf Programs while Mike Keogh and Brendon Post will move into full-time coaching positions within the program.

As part of this reorganization, Mike Keogh has been named Assistant Men's and Women's Golf Coach and Recruiting Coordinator, and Brendon Post has been named Assistant Men's and Women's Golf Coach and Director of Player Development.

“We are very excited for Patty to lead this combined effort,” Jennifer Judy, Senior Associate Director of Athletics commented. “She has done a fantastic job with our women's program, and we have great confidence that this investment in full-time coaching positions, along with Patty's leadership, will enable us to build a program focused on sustainable success for our athletes. I look forward to both teams having the opportunity to compete for championships and take pride in their student-athlete experience at UD.”

The only coach in UD women's golf history, Patty Post recently completed her sixth year in Newark, and has led the Blue Hens to consecutive Colonial Athletic Association titles and NCAA Regional appearances. She has earned CAA Women's Golf Coach of the Year honors in each of the last two seasons.

Delaware has captured eight team titles over the last four years, while Andi Slane won the 2015 and 2016 CAA individual titles and Ariane Klotz was selected the 2017 CAA Rookie of the Year. Six Blue Hens have earned all-conference honors under Post, who was selected the 2014 LPGA Teaching and Club Professional Northeast Coach of the Year and then National Coach of the Year in the fall of 2014.

“This is a special opportunity to oversee the men's and women's golf teams and the future of the golf programs at the University of Delaware,” commented Post. “Investing in our staff is a crucial part of providing our student-athletes on both teams the best possible coaching and player development while at Delaware. We strive to make ourselves and our players better every day.”

Keogh, who served as head coach of the UD men's team for the past 16 years in a part-time role, will take over full-time assistant coach and recruiting duties with both programs. The 2015 CAA Men's Golf Coach of the Year, Keogh has led the Blue Hens to 130 top-10 finishes and 16 team titles, including this year's season-opening Colgate/Alex Lagowitz Memorial Invitational. Keogh has coached two conference tournament champions and NCAA Tournament participants during his tenure, as Justin Martinson claimed the 2010 CAA title while Greg Matthias captured the 2012 league crown.

Brendon Post has been a part-time assistant coach with the UD women's team during all six years in the history of the program. During his tenure the Blue Hens have recorded 51 top 10-team finishes, including eight team titles. He has helped coach six All-CAA honorees, including first team selections Slane in 2015 and Klotz in 2017.

Patty and Brendon Post are a married couple. As such, in accordance with University policy, Brendon Post will report directly to John Krimmel, Associate Director of Athletics.
