Arizona Names Giovana Maymon Women's Golf Head Coach

A highly respected coach nationally in college golf with elite recruiting experience, Giovana Maymon was named University of Arizona’s Women’s Golf Head Coach, Vice President and Director of Athletics Desireé Reed-Francois announced Monday. 

Maymon, who propelled Baylor University to a NCAA Championship Runner-Up finish as a student-athlete, has spent the last three seasons as assistant coach at Texas A&M.

To become head coach of her college program, with its rich history and tradition of success, is a dream come true!
