Noah Goldman Promoted To Associate Head Coach
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Noah Goldman was promoted to associate head coach of the Oregon State men's golf team, head coach Jon Reehoorn announced Tuesday.
Goldman has helped lead the Oregon State men's golf program to two postseason appearances, five team titles and several individual honors and records during his first four years as an assistant coach.
"Noah is an amazing coach," Reehoorn said. "Each day he brings an awesome attitude, competitive intensity and work ethic to our program that has been infectious over the last four years. Our student-athletes have benefited greatly from having Noah as a mentor, both on and off the course.
"Noah loves to compete in everything he does and is simply one of the best individuals I know. Our student-athletes trust him to help them in their development, and I know I can trust him with every decision he makes because the success of Oregon State golf is always at the forefront for him."
Reehoorn and Goldman led Oregon State to one of the best seasons in program history in 2020-21. The Beavers finished in a tie for second place at the NCAA Albuquerque Regional and advanced to nationals for the first time since 2010 and just the fourth time since 1967.
Shawn Lu was selected to the All-Pac-12 First Team and Spencer Tibbits was named to the All-Pac-12 Second Team. It's the first time two Beavers have received all-conference recognition in the same year since 2010 when Diego Velasquez made the first team and Mike Barry was selected to the second team.
The team also excelled in the classroom, posting a 3.49 GPA in the spring term.
Following the 2020-21 campaign, Goldman was named a finalist for the 2021 Jan Strickland Outstanding Assistant Coach Award as selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).
The Strickland Award is presented to the NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, or NJCAA assistant coach that, among other things, has excelled in working with their student-athletes both on the course and in the classroom.
