Mic Potter
Entering his sixth season at the helm of the Alabama women's golf program, and his 29th overall in college golf, head coach Mic Potter has already established his own legacy.
Potter, who came to the Capstone after a Hall-of-Fame career at Furman, led the Tide to its second NCAA Championship appearance in program history in his very first year at Alabama and repeated the feat in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, reaffirming his status as one of the prominent coaches in women's collegiate golf. His reclamation project in Tuscaloosa is one of the most impressive turnarounds in collegiate golf history.
The honors continue to pile up for Potter, who helped the Crimson Tide develop into a national power in the ultra-competitive SEC. The veteran coach won his 11th Conference Coach of the Year award and his second in the SEC in 2010 after leading the Crimson Tide to the school's first SEC title in women's golf. He was also named the NGCA East Region Coach of the Year.
Potter's 2009-10 team also set several school records.
Potter's 2008-09 team was a fixture in the top 10 nationally.
In 2007, Potter helped two-time All-SEC performer Jenny Suh leave as an All-American. Potter followed that up when Ekey earned All-American honors in just her first season at Alabama in 2008.
The Crimson Tide placed 12th overall and again improved on the previous year's results - something Alabama has accomplished each season under Potter.
In his first season, Potter led his team to a tournament championship in his very first outing by winning Alabama's own UA-Ann Rhoads Invitational in early September.
The team set a school record that spring by shooting a 290 at the LSU/Cleveland Classic in March, and recorded two top-five finishes in the spring season. After qualifying for the East regional, the Crimson Tide put together an unlikely postseason run by defeating Virginia in a playoff to advance to the school's second-ever NCAA Championship.
Looking back on that resume, it comes as no surprise that Potter had his very first Tide team competing for a national championship. On June 17, 2005, the University of Alabama named 1994 NGCA Hall of Fame honoree Potter as its new women's golf coach. By doing so, the Crimson Tide added one of the most illustrious names in women's golf to its already rich golf heritage.
Potter, one of the most experienced and successful coaches in the nation, has one of the most outstanding resumes in the nation, having guided Furman, a school competing in the Southern Conference, to national prominence in a long career with the Paladins.
A 1994 National Golf Coaches Hall of Fame inductee, Potter spent 23 years coaching the Furman women's team, including 10 years during which he served as the Paladins' Director of Intercollegiate Golf.
During his two-decade tenure with the Paladins, Potter guided Furman to 15 NCAA Championship berths and six top-10 national finishes, including an NCAA runner-up finish in 1987. He has yet to coach a season in which his team has not reached NCAA Regional competition, a streak dating back to 1993, the first season in which the Regional format was established.
Potter's coaching accomplishments stand alone as an indication of the abilities of the 54-year old mentor. In addition to these outstanding achievements, his players have recorded astounding success, at both the intercollegiate level and in the professional ranks.
The ability to build and maintain a program are certainly among Potter's strengths when considering the amazing run of success he had throughout his career at Furman. Potter took the school, with an enrollment of about 2,500 students, in to the upper tier of women's golf schools, leading the Paladins to unprecedented heights.
Potter was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year eight times and led his Furman teams to 36 tournament titles while his Tide teams have captured five tournament wins, which put him third among all active women's golf coaches. To put that remarkable statistic in perspective, the Alabama women's golf program had won 19 team titles through the beginning of the 2005-06 season, a span of 31 years.
In 2004, Potter had seven of his former pupils on the LPGA tour, more than any other college coach from one school. In fact, only four schools: Arizona, Arizona State, Florida and Texas, had more than seven athletes on the LPGA player list in 2004. More importantly, each of the seven players coached by Potter had earned a degree.
By any standard, Mic Potter has proven to be one of the best women's golf coaches in the nation for more than two decades. He has built a successful program and maintained that by recruiting and cultivating talented players who advance to the professional ranks and obtain their degrees.
A 1977 graduate of Cortland State University, Potter majored in physical education while earning four varsity letters: three in soccer and one in golf. He is married to the former Kim O'Branski of Ithaca, N.Y.
