Oregon has hired Arizona assistant Derek Radley as its head women's golf coach.

Radley spent six years at Arizona and was associate head coach when the Wildcats won the NCAA championship this past season.

"Derek Radley is a rising star and the perfect fit to lead Oregon women's golf," athletic director Rob Mullens said in a release. "His commitment to the student-athlete experience and his vision for building a championship culture came through loud and clear."

Arizona finished in the top 10 five times in Radley's six years as an assistant to head coach Laura Ianello. He previously was a swing coach and caddy for LPGA Tour member Sara Brown, his wife of five years. The two have a son, Palmer, born in 2016.

"I can't wait to bring my family to Eugene and establish roots," Radley said. "Without them, none of this would have been possible."

Radley is a Cleveland native who played collegiately at Ferris State University in Michigan. He was involved in recruiting Tigard native Gigi Stoll, a two-time Pacific Northwest women's player of the year, to Arizona.

Radley replaces Ria Scott, who left after nine seasons to become the head coach at Virginia. The Ducks return five of their top six players from a team that made its 11th consecutive trip to the NCAA regionals.

"I want to thank Rob Mullens and (senior associate athletic director) Jody Sykes for giving me this opportunity," Radley said. "... I'm excited to come in and hit the ground running and do everything I can to help these young women reach their goals."
