Jamison joins Stanford golf staff as assistant coach


Former Nova Southeastern head coach Ryan Jamison has joined Stanford as an assistant coach for Men's Golf.

Jamison replaces Cardinal grad Graham Brockington, who served in the same role for the past two seasons.

"Ryan will be a great addition as our Enlight Foundation Assistant for Men's Golf," said Conrad Ray, Stanford's Director of Men's Golf. "He has a strong record of player development, winning at a high levels, and passion for college golf. We are honored that Stanford University and our program is a strong draw for a coach of his caliber."

Jamison's four-year stint as head coach at Nova Southeastern included the 2015 NCAA Division II national title.

That season saw his squad capture 12 tournament wins and seven individual crowns. The Sharks finished first or second in all but one of their tournaments.

The team had four All-Americans and one Academic All-American, while Jamison received the Dave Williams National Coach of the Year Award. Nova Southeastern's Santiago Gomez was named the DII Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year following the program's landmark run.

In 2013, Jamison's first year with the Sharks, the program tallied a third-place finish at the NCAA Division II Championships. Jamison improved upon that successful 2013 season with a second-place finish in the 2014 NCAA Division II Championships

Before taking over the reigns of the Sharks' program, Jamison served as an assistant coach at Nova Southeastern for four years following two seasons as an assistant at DePaul.

Prior to his coaching career, Jamison executed various golf operations for the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational and Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge.

Jamison graduated from DePaul in 2005 and returned to his alma mater in 2010 to earn an MBA.

As a student-athlete at DePaul, Jamison won the Midwest Amateur Tournament by five shots and served as the team captain for his final two seasons with the Blue Demons.
