Through the quality of McCurdy's recruiting classes, the Shockers are looking to build a program that will continue to compete on a national level.

McCurdy earned Missouri Valley Conference Coach-of-the-Year honors in 2013-14 after guiding the team to the first Missouri Valley Conference championship in school history. It was the first team championship for the Shockers since the 1992 team won the Gateway Conference. The team carded a school record 900 (297-304-299) in the 54-hole Valley championship.  With the win, the team advanced to the NCAA Stillwater Regional and finished 22nd.

Prior to NAU, McCurdy served as an assistant coach for the men's and women's golf teams at Washington State University from 1999-2001. He helped lead the Cougar women into the NCAA West Regional for the first time in 2000 while the 2001 men's squad earned its best Pac-10 Championship finish since 1991. McCurdy also mentored three Washington State golfers who were named all-Pac-10 honorable mention in 2001. Tasha Browner became only the second Cougar woman ever to be named to the all-Pac-10 team after she fired a 67 and 209 to break the school records for single-round and tournament scoring and advanced to the NCAA West Regional as an individual, finishing 68th overall. Browner went on to play on the West Coast Ladies Golf Tour and the Futures Golf Tour, where she placed in the top 25 in two events. 

In addition to his coaching duties at Washington State, the Tekoa, Wash., native was the head professional at the Washington State University Golf Course and oversaw all private instruction at the course while teaching classes for the university. McCurdy graduated from the PGA's Golf Professional Training Program, and is a member of the Professional Golfer's Association of America.

Great Results

"Coach McCurdy was exceptionally positive and encouraging to the children. Coach Krista was also very good with all of the campers and was a great golfer and role model.
