Sean Covich will be the head coach of the men’s golf program. The golf team will start competing in July 2015, according to a news release.
Covich spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach for the Mississippi State University Bulldogs, a school in the Southeastern Conference.
Men’s golf was actually a varsity sport at WVU from 1933-82.
The reintroduction of men’s golf as a varsity sport will satisfy a requirement from WVU’s Conference, the Big 12, that a school must meet a minimum of six men’s and six women’s sports.
