LOS ANGELES – USC women’s golf head coach Justin Silverstein, who has led the Trojans to consecutive appearances in the NCAA semifinals, has signed a contract extension through the 2028-29 season, USC athletic director Jen Cohen announced Wednesday, June 5. 

“I’m excited and honored to sign another extension with USC to keep me here for the foreseeable future,” Silverstein said. “I want to thank Jen Cohen and Paul Perrier for believing in me and supporting our program to the fullest extent possible.
