EUGENE, Ore. – Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens announced today that University of Arizona associate head coach Derek Radley has been named the new head coach of the Oregon women’s golf program. Radley has spent the last six seasons at Arizona, including the national championship season this year for the Wildcats.
Radley started as an assistant coach in 2012 before being promoted to associate head coach in 2016.
“Derek Radley is a rising star and the perfect fit to lead Oregon women’s golf,” said Mullens. “His commitment to the student-athlete experience and his vision for building a championship culture came through loud and clear. Derek has an infectious energy and a passion for teaching and mentoring. We are excited to welcome Derek, Sara, and Palmer to the Duck family.”
“I want to thank Rob Mullens and Jody Sykes for giving me this opportunity,” Radley said. “Academically, athletically and in the community, Oregon has created a strong student-athlete experience and I’m excited to come in and hit the ground running and do everything I can to help these young women reach their goals.”
The Wildcats earned five top-10 NCAA finishes during Radley’s time in Tucson, culminating with a national title in 2018. With Radley by her side during the championship round, junior Haley Moore birdied her first playoff hole to give Arizona a 3-2 win over Alabama.
Arizona also earned a trio of top-3 finishes at the Pac-12 Championships with Radley on staff, securing a league title in 2015.
Radley coached seven All-Americans, including two-time selection Lindsey Weaver in 2014 and 2015. The Wildcats were ranked in the top-12 nationally in each of Radley’s six seasons.
On the recruiting trail, Radley helped the Wildcats sign multiple top-20 ranked prospects, including Tigard, Ore., native Gigi Stoll, a two-time Pacific Northwest Women’s Player of the Year.
“I also want to thank Laura Ianello, Tom Theodorakis and the administration at Arizona for letting me be part of an elite program for the last six years,” Radley said. “Being a part of the national championship team this year is one of the best moments of my career thus far.”
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Radley is a 2006 graduate of Ferris State, where he was a two-time all-conference selection on the Bulldogs’ golf team. He earned a degree in marketing and professional golf management.
Radley served as LPGA tour pro Sara Brown’s coach and caddie in 2010 and 2011. Radley is certified as a PGA Class A Professional. He began his teaching career at two top-25 golf schools, Crystal Mountain (Michigan) and Dana Rader (North Carolina).
Radley and Brown were married in 2013 and had a son, Palmer, in 2016.
“I can’t wait to bring my family to Eugene and establish roots, without them none of this would have been possible,” Radley said.
Radley is the sixth head coach in Oregon women’s golf history, replacing Ria Scott who held the position from 2009-2018. The Ducks are coming off an 11th consecutive trip to NCAA regionals. Oregon returns five of six players off last year’s roster, including Kathleen Scavo, who averaged a team-best 73.32 (+1.65 vs. par) in 31 rounds in 2018.
