COACHING STAFF AT A GLANCE:
Brian Watts is in his fourth year at the helm of the Oregon State program, and has his team poised for success again in 2004-05. With a host of young talent and savvy veterans in the lineup, Watts' squad is both deep and skilled. Watts served five seasons as the assistant for the men's and women's squads prior to becoming head coach, helping the men's team to 12th place at the 2001 NCAA Championships.
Anjeanette Brown (formerly Dabbs) returns to Oregon State as the men's assistant. Brown, an All-Pac-10 selection in 1998 and 1999, is one of the most successful golfers in OSU history. Brown shares OSU's lowest single round (69), and is the last women's golfer to claim an individual tournament win, earning medalist honors in the 1997 Pepperdine Wave Invitational. She helped the Beavers to the 1998 NCAA Championships. Prior to her return to OSU, Brown served as the director of youth programs for the Colorado Golf Association in Denver since 2001.
