John Fields is in his 13th year at the helm of The University of Texas men's golf program. During his first 12 years in Austin, Fields has positioned Texas as a consistent challenger for the national title and has led the Longhorns into the national spotlight year after year.
Fields became the Longhorns' golf coach in August, 1997. Tradition, a history of success, and outstanding players helped draw Fields to the Forty Acres.
When Texas was looking for a man to become only the fifth golf coach in school history, the formula was simple. The school asked those who had played for Fields, and those who had played against Fields. His popularity and the success of his teams combined to sell UT Men's Athletics Director DeLoss Dodds on Fields.
