Coastal Carolina head men’s golf coach Kevin McPherson on Tuesday announced that Jonathan Bowden has been named assistant coach.

Bowden, a native of Easley and a Furman graduate, spent the 2013-14 season at the University of Memphis and helped the Tigers earn an at-large berth to the NCAA Raleigh Regional.

Prior to his stint at Memphis, Bowden was an assistant for the 2012-13 season with both the men's and women's programs at Washington and Lee University. He helped the men's squad to seven top-10 finishes, including four top fives and helped Teddy Corcoran (first team) and Patrick Clossin (third team) earn All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference honors.

On the women's side, Bowden was a part of school history as the Generals' entered their first year of collegiate competition. The women's program carded five top-10 showings, including a third-place showing at the ODAC Championship. Two Generals – Rachael Wright (second team) and Sara Moir (third team) – earned All-ODAC recognition.

Bowden began his collegiate coaching career after holding positions at several golf clubs and camps. Notably, he served as an assistant coach in 2010 at his high school alma mater, Easley High School, working with the varsity and junior varsity programs.
