Arizona To Begin National Search for Next Head Women’s Golf Coach

TUCSON, Ariz. – The University of Arizona Department of Athletics will begin a national search immediately for its next Head Women’s Golf Coach after the departure of Laura Ianello who was named head coach at the University of Texas. 

“We thank Laura for her 14 seasons of service as our head coach and for continuing the championship legacy of Arizona Women’s Golf,” said Arizona Vice President and Director of Athletics Desireé Reed-Francois. “We wish Laura, her husband Jeff, and their two daughters the best as they begin a new chapter of their lives in Austin.” 


“Arizona Women’s Golf has a storied legacy of championships, the best home facility in college golf in the William M. “Bill” Clements Golf Center, and the support of an incredible golf community in Tucson. This is one of the top coaching jobs in college golf, and we will work diligently to find a new head coach who is best fit to continue the championship culture of Arizona Women’s Golf.” 


A member of Arizona’s national championship team in 2000 as a student-athlete, Ianello became head coach prior to the 2010-11 season after sharing coaching duties with Shelly Haywood during the previous season. Ianello guided the Wildcats to the 2018 NCAA championship in addition to three other match play appearances at the NCAA Championships. She was a two-time Pac-12 Coach of the Year and guided the Wildcats to NCAA Regionals in each of her 14 seasons as head coach.
