Head coach Kevin Farrell returns to Bowling Green State University for his second year following a successful initial campaign in the 2012-13 season, after leading the Orange and Brown to top five finishes in over half their events last season. Farrell was named the new head coach of the men’s program a year ago after spending three seasons at Mount St. Mary’s, where he was the men’s coach for three years and the women’s coach for one season.Read Full Bio
Farrell was a standout golfer on the Mountaineers men’s golf team from 2004-08. He finished in the Top-10 at the NEC Championships in both his junior and senior seasons to earn spots on the All-NEC team. Farrell is one of five players in team history to finish in the Top-10 at the NEC Championships twice in his career and his three-round score of 220 at the 2008 NEC Championships is still the record for three rounds at the NEC Championships.
