WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The Winston-Salem State University Department of Athletics made a huge next step in the reinstatement of its men's golf program as Ryan McManus was named head coach of the Rams golf program. When the Rams return to the greens for the first time since 2012, it will be under McManus' guidance as the team looks to build upon its strong history in the sport.
McManus is no stranger to the Rams. In addition to his duties as the men's golf head coach, McManus will also continue in his duties as the quarterbacks coach of the Rams football team. He is a 2009 graduate of Wake Forest University with a degree in communication. He began his coaching career as a volunteer at Kent State. He was also an extra in The Dark Knight Rises starring Christian Bale.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to be the head coach. Being able to bring the program back is exciting for the school and athletic department," McManus said. "The goal is to get the program to championship caliber play as soon as possible and I think we have the resources and support to do that quickly."
The Rams golf team will begin play in the spring of 2020. For more information on Rams athletics, contact the WSSU Office of Athletic Media Relations at (336) 750-2143 or log on to www.WSSURams.com.
