UAB's Alan Murray named National Coach of the Year by Golfweek

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM - AL - UAB men's golf coach Alan Murray capped an impressive head coaching debut with an impressive honor.

The Blazers first-year head coach was named the National Coach of the Year by Golfweek. Murray led UAB to its fifth NCAA Championships appearance. It placed 21st at the championships, the second-best finish in program history.

"It comes down to the kids," Murray said in an interview with Golfweek. "If they don't buy in, if they don't want to work hard, it's going to be tough. I am really lucky that I have great kids."

Four Blazer golfers earned All-Conference USA accolades and junior Paul Dunne was named the 2014 Conference USA Golfer of the Year. Dunne and senior Wilson McDonald also were named to the PING Division I All-Southeast Region Team.
