A 2009 graduate of Tennessee Tech and former Golden Eagle golfer, Carla Hazelwood has returned to her alma mater to take the position of assistant coach for the men's and women's golf teams. Most recently, Hazelwood served as the graduate assistant coach at fellow OVC school, Austin Peay. She joins the Tech staff to support head coach Polk Brown
Hazelwood began her career at Tech in 2005 and was named Most Dedicated Player by legendary TTU coach Bobby Nichols. A team captain in 2009, she finished her playing career with two all-tournament honors (2006 North/South/Jacksonville Beach Golf Course and 2007 TSU Triangular/Greystone Golf Course)
Brown, in his second season at the helm, believes the experience Hazelwood gained at Austin Peay will be a valuable asset to his teams.
"I look forward to seeing what the future holds for our program with her being aboard," he added.
Hazelwood will assist both the men's and women's teams with their spring seasons.
