Coach Jill Briles-Hinton Resigns

Jill BrilesCoach Jill Briles-Hinton, University of Florida's Golf coach, has resigned from the program. Briles-Hinton has been coach of the Lady Gators since 1998 and played 12 years on the LPGA. The announcement came after the Lady Gators posted a 16th place finish in the NCAA East regional. The Gators advanced to the NCAA championships six times during her tenure, which included sixth-place finishes in 2002 and 2006. The Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year in women's golf in 2008 cited wanting to spend more time with her family as the main reason for leaving the Gator program. The BIN does not have Jill's family lineage at this time, but we believe her lineage starts in Peoria, Illinois. The BIN wishes nothing but the best for Jill and her family!
