WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - UNCW has named Daniel Bowden as its men's golf coach.

Bowden was named interim coach of the Seahawks in August 2017 after head coach Matt Clark took a job at North Carolina.

Bowden helped lead UNCW to its first Colonial Athletic Association championship since 2013, and was named the Colonial Athletic Association coach of the year.

"Daniel did a wonderful job with the program this year and we're delighted to have him direct the program permanently," said UNCW athletic director Jimmy Bass in a news release. "He has an impressive golf pedigree. We're confident that he will take our successful program to even greater heights in the future."

"Coaching at UNCW has been a tremendous blessing in my life," Bowden said in the release. "It's such an honor to coach at a program like UNCW that has such a rich history and a winning tradition in golf."

The Easley, SC, native played college golf at Georgia Tech and Furman. He played two years for the Yellow Jackets and was a member of the 2007 Atlantic Coast Conference championship team.
