    Andrew Tank named ISU Golf Coach

    AMES, Iowa- Andrew Tank, a native of Des Moines who assisted the University of Minnesota men’s golf program to a pair of top 10 finishes at the NCAA Championships, has been named Iowa State’s men’s golf coach, announced today by the ISU Athletics Department.

    Tank was the captain of Minnesota’s 2002 NCAA Championship team and has spent the last eight seasons as an assistant to Brad James on the Gophers men’s golf staff, including the last three as an associate head coach. During his time in Minneapolis, Tank helped mentor 10 All-America selections and 16 All-Big Ten picks.

    “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead a program that I believe in,” Tank said. “It is special for me to be able to come back to Central Iowa where my playing career began. I have always followed the Cyclones and after meeting with the administration and others on campus, my belief in the program is now even stronger. My passion for Iowa State is genuine and I’m excited to work with top-caliber players that are committed to reaching their potential as members of the Cyclone golf family.”

    Don't know too much about him, but he sounds like an excellent selection. Can't wait for another non-traditional sport at ISU to become successful. (no jimlad intended)

    Re: Andrew Tank named ISU Golf Coach

    I am pretty sure that I played golf against him before in high school. I do not remember him that well but I did recognize the name. The dowling guys always thought pretty highly of themselves. I think Dave Bartels was there number one player and I didn't care for the guy at all. That being said it was a long time ago and he hopefully do well at ISU.

    I like the fact that we got yet another Iowan that has some credentials.

    I did as well. I will echo your comments about the Dowling kids especially Bartels. He was a ********* of the first order. Tank on the other hand was more of the quiet type who just played really well and wasn't as cocky as the rest. I think he will do a good job for ISU and with his ties to the Des Moines area he will bring in all the local talent.

    Lets just hope that he doesn't bring Bartels in as an assistant. If that guy was around the program for long he would rub off on all the players and we would have a team full of douchers real quick.

    CyDude16 is cheap to recruit and fits the bill.

    Judd Gibb. He is a nice guy and a good pro as well. He was at The Legacy in Norwalk for quite some time.

    Ya that's his name super nice guy, and he is a good player. I would think the new coach would want to keep him around all the players like him.

    That would probably be a good idea.

    Re: Andrew Tank named ISU Golf Coach

    Well, since Judd already resigned his position, I don't see that happening. I would guess there is zero chance Judd would come back as assistant.

    Andrew is a good guy, but really struggled at UM last year. It appeared the writing was on the wall for him once Brad James (his boss) moved on to a different job. Minny had great success with the foreign players that James knew and recruited and at times all players were from outside the USA.

    This will be the first time he will be able to make his own decisions, so it should be very interesting. It will be very difficult for him to compete against the other southern schools in the conference. In my opinion his only chance for success is whether James can funnel foreign recruits to him at ISU.

    Nothing against Andrew, but this isn't an exciting hire. It's just unfortunate that several of their original candidates weren't interested in the job.
