Cheryl Stacy, who brought stability and expectations of high academic achievement to a young program, resigned today as Central Michigan women’s golf coach.
“This year, five of the 38 Academic All-Mid-American Conference Team members were from CMU,” CMU Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics Michael Alford said. “And four CMU golfers were named an All-American Scholar by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association.
“Our team scores improved each year Cheryl was here, and she’s put together a solid foundation for our next coach. We thank Cheryl for her leadership and for putting us on this path.”
Alford said a national search for the next CMU golf coach will begin immediately.
“I will cherish my time with the CMU student-athletes at practice, on the road and during competition,” Stacy said. “I enjoyed watching them grow and accomplish their goals, both on the golf course and in the classroom. I’m eager to see how the program continues to develop.”
Stacy arrived at CMU in December 2014. She was head coach at Michigan from 2009-2013.
Stacy played on the LPGA Tour, the Futures Golf Tour and several other regional tours from 1985-1994 and was inducted into the Ohio State University Women’s Sport Hall of Fame in 2001.
