Josh Brewer Named Men's And Women's Golf Assistant Coach
Aug. 22, 2008
Josh Brewer, who owns more than a decade of collegiate golf experience as a successful player, instructor and recruiter, has been named a USC men's and women's golf assistant coach, Director of Golf Kurt Schuette announced on Friday (Aug. 22).
Brewer comes to USC after spending the previous six seasons (2003-08) as an assistant men's golf coach at his alma mater, Indiana.
'Josh has a wide array of competitive, coaching and recruiting experience at the Division I level,' Schuette said. 'His experience and commitment will immediately contribute to our mission of developing champions and championships.
'Now that NCAA rules allow us to have two coaches recruiting and coaching simultaneously, he will complete our staff of four coaches in a combined program. I am confident Josh will prove to be a tremendous asset to our men's and women's golf teams.'
During Brewer's six years with the Hoosiers, Indiana made four trips to the NCAA Championships (2004-06, 2008). Its berth in the NCAA Finals this past season was its first since 1996.
Also during Brewer's tenure at Indiana, the Hoosiers won 11 team titles and claimed a runner-up finish at the 2005 Big Ten Championships. He helped guide Jorge Campillo and Jeff Overton to Big Ten Championships individual titles and Big Ten Player of the Year and All-American honors in 2008 and 2005, respectively. Campillo tied for second at the 2008 NCAA Championships while Overton has been a PGA Tour member since 2006.
Brewer played four years at Indiana (1995-98), helping the Hoosiers reach the 1996 NCAA Finals, the 1997 NCAA Regionals and the 1998 Big Ten Championship crown. He was a two-time All-American Scholar Team selection (1997-98) and a three-year Academic All-Big-Ten honoree (1996-98).
The Hoosier state native graduated from Indiana in 1998 with a degree in Business Management. Following graduation, he erased a nine-shot deficit to win the Indiana Amateur Championship that year and then began a three-year stint as a financial advisor before beginning his career as a coach.
Born Sept. 17, 1975, Brewer is married to the former Selena Offredo.
