Stephens College Interim Athletics Director Ray Fron announced Monday (Oct. 19) that Brian Callahan has been hired as the college's new head golf coach.
Callahan takes over for Fron, who led the program in 2014-15 before assuming the role of interim AD. A Columbia, Mo., resident since 1995, Callahan has competed in several golf tournaments in the area, including Columbia's Francis Hagan Match Play Championship, Columbia City Championship, Gustin Club and the Missouri Amateur Championship.
"I am excited to bring Brian [Callahan] aboard as the next golf coach," Fron said. "He is an accomplished amateur golfer and has the same philosophical approach and goals that align themselves with Stephens. Brian will be an asset to both the institution and our golf program."
Originally from Hanover, Ill., Callahan was a varsity letterwinner in basketball and baseball and earned a B.S. in Psychology from Illinois State University. Callahan has spent 25 years in the insurance industry and currently works at Columbia Insurance Group as a quality control coordinator.
He resides in Columbia with his wife, Toby, and stepson, Zachare. His daughter, Courtney, attends University of Central Missouri.
