    Brian McCants was named assistant coach for the Indiana men's golf team on July 24, 2012. McCants spent the previous season as an assistant coach at Kansas University, following six highly successful seasons as head men's golf coach at Newberry College.

    The 2013-14 season saw McCants help the Hoosiers to the NYX Hoosier Invitational title as well as a seventh place finish at the Big Ten Championships for Nicholas Grubnich. Senior David Mills also finished his career with a 74.09 career scoring average, which ranks in the top 10 all-time at Indiana.

    In his first season with the Hoosiers, he helped guide IU to three tournament championships and an appearance in the NCAA Regional. Individually, Brant Peaper received First Team All-Big Ten honors and was named to the PING All-Midwest Region team as well.

    During his one season at Kansas, the Jayhawks posted three Top Five tournament finishes, including a win at the Hawkeye/Great River Entertainment Invitational.

    As head coach at Newberry College, McCants guided the Wolves to three South Atlantic Conference Championships and earned the South Atlantic Conference Coach of the Year honor four consecutive years.

    McCants spent seven seasons on the men's golf coaching staff at Newberry College, serving as the head coach for the final six. During that time, he guided Newberry to the NCAA Division II National Championship quarterfinals in 2011, making Newberry College the first South Atlantic Conference team in history to qualify for the NCAA Division II Men's Golf National Championship twice after they also accomplished the feat in 2008.

    McCants also coached the first South Atlantic Conference Golfer of the Year in program history in 2011 and three-straight SAC Freshman of the Year winners from 2008 to 2010. Prior to Newberry, McCants was the head men's golf coach at St. Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg, N.C.

    McCants is a 1994 graduate of Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich.
