Bill Sergent named men's golf coach at UVa.-Wise

WISE — Virginia-Wise announced on Wednesday that Bill Sergent has been named the men's golf coach.

Prior to joining the Cavaliers, Sergent coached both the men's and women's golf teams at Cumberland College and the University of the Cumberlands. His Cumberland College men's team finished 6th in the NAIA in 1992.

Sergent served as NAIA Men's Golf Coaches Association president in 1990 and '94 and women's president in 2001. He was also the president of the Kentucky Golf Association in 1994.

As a player at Cumberland, Sergent played in three NAIA national championships and won 10 college tournaments. He has won more than 50 amateur tournaments including the 1990 and '97 Kentucky State Amateur.

"I consider this an exciting opportunity to coach the UVa.-Wise golf team during the transition to NCAA Division II," said Sergent. "Hopefully we can bring the same type of success to Virginia-Wise as we had at Cumberland and the University of the Cumberlands."
