MADISON, Wis. --- Tim Alexander has served the Edgewood College Athletic Department in many roles over a 29-year stint with the Eagles. After a brief retirement announced in November, Alexander is coming back to the Eagles and to serve another role for the department: Head Women's Golf Coach. Director of Athletics Al Brisack announced Alexander will take over the program, effective immediately.
"I am thrilled to have Tim leading our Women's Golf program," said Brisack. "He has a proven history of building a program up. He is extremely organized in his planning and has a tremendous ability to develop student-athletes potential. I am grateful that he was willing to put retirement on hold a bit longer and strengthen our Women's Golf program."
Alexander spent most of his tenure with the Eagles leading the soccer programs, winning over 500 games combined with both teams. He led the men's team from 1990-2014, while leading the women's team from 1993-2018.
What makes Alexander an ideal fit for the Eagles Women's Golf team is his ability in building a program. He showcased that with both soccer teams, while also showcasing his coaching talents with the baseball and men's tennis programs during his time with Edgewood College. Alexander also served in an administrative role at one point with the Eagles.
"I look forward to the challenge of building the Women's Golf program at Edgewood College," said Alexander. "It is a great opportunity and I feel I am up for the challenge. Edgewood College has been great to me over the past 29 years and I hope to give back some more to the community."
Alexander coached the soccer programs to seven NCAA Tournament appearances. He led them to 12 combined regular season conference titles, including winning eight straight with the women's program from 1994-2001. He was named Conference Coach of the Year 10 times throughout his impressive run with the soccer teams.
The Eagles Women's Golf program competed at seven meets last season and were led by Sarah Pophal, who will be a junior during the upcoming season. Pophal is a two-time All-NACC performer after finishing in the top 10 at the conference meet during each of her first two seasons.
