Sean Covich

...
Sean Covich, a rising coach in collegiate golf, was named West Virginia University's 12th men's golf coach on May 22, 2014. A native of Meridian, Miss., Covich comes to WVU from Mississippi State, where he has served as the assistant men's golf coach the last three seasons. He previously served as the head men's golf coach at Meridian Community College for five seasons. At Mississippi State, Covich became the school's first full-time men's golf assistant coach in 2011. He helped the Bulldogs to the NCAA Tournament in 2013 and 2014 while improving the school's national ranking from No. 125 in 2011 to a school-record No. 27 in 2013. The Bulldogs won a school-record four tournament titles in 2012-13, then added two more tournament wins in 2013-14 for the most wins (six) in a two-year span in school history. The Bulldogs set school records for best team 36 hole score (-25), best team 54 hole score (-38) and season records for most team birdies (497), most team eagles (14) and most team scores of even-par or better (14). In addition, he helped the Bulldogs to the second-lowest team round in school history (274) and the second-lowest team score in relation to par (-14). Covich coached Chad Ramey to All-SEC honors, the first player in school history to be named all-conference three consecutive seasons.

At Meridian Community College, Covich successfully transitioned MCC from a NJCAA Division II program to a NJCAA Division I national power. He led MCC to a NJCAA National Championship Runner-Up finish in just their second season at the Division I level and positioned the Eagles as the No. 1 ranked JUCO team during the 2010-11 season. At MCC, Covich guided his squad to 18 tournament championships. He produced 15 senior college players, six all-tournament team members at the national championship and guided seven All-Americans. During a back-to-back-to-back NJCAA postseason run, Covich's 2010 squad finished runner-up at the NJCAA National Championships. He also coached the school's first individual national champion in 2010. The Eagles set multiple school records during the Covich era, including most tournament wins in a season (9), lowest team score (274), and lowest team score in relation to par (-14). Covich earned Coach of the Year honors four times during his span at MCC. In 2007, Covich was awarded with Coach of the Year by the Mississippi Association of Coaches, the National Junior College Association of America (NJCAA) Region 23, and the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC). In 2011, after winning the Golf Coaches Association of America's District IV Coach of the Year Award, he was named a semifinalist for the Golf Coaches Association of America National Coach of the Year. Known as an outstanding recruiter, Covich recruited and coached Brandt Garon, a two-time All-American at MCC. The Louisiana native won the Arnold Palmer Award and the NJCAA National Championship in 2010 while under Covich's guidance. Garon then added the prestigious Jack Nicklaus Award in 2011. Another Covich-product was 2012 NJCAA National Champion Jake Stirling. The Aussie was also a two-time All-American and was recruited to MCC by Covich. T.J. Morgan became the third player recruited by Covich to MCC who finished first at the NJCAA National Championship (t1 in 2013).
