Former PGA Tour player Jon Mills has been named the Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year.
Mills became head coach in 2019, replacing Canadian Golf Hall of Fame member Herb Page of Markham, Ont., who had announced his retirement.
Mills had been serving as associate coach with the team since 2016 after a college career at Kent State in which he was a member of four consecutive MAC Championships teams (1998-2002) and won a NCAA Regional title in 2001.
Kent State will play in the NCAA Kingston Springs Regional and will be heading to the Golf Club of Tennessee for their next round of postseason play May 17-19.
Calgary’s Ryan Yip, another former Kent State player, is an assistant coach at Kent State.
