STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State announced Monday that women's golf coach Annie Young is leaving the program.

Young will be moving to southern California with her husband Caleb, who has accepted a position in San Diego. Young spent time as both a player and coach with the Cowgirls, and is one of the most decorated golfers in school history.

She was named Big 12 Conference Player of the Year in 2005 and led OSU to a team title at the Big 12 Women's Golf Championships. She was a three-time All-Big 12 player, and in 2004 helped OSU to a second place finish at the NCAA Championships, the best finish in program history.

Young coached OSU for three seasons and led the team to two top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships and a conference title in 2010. She also coached Caroline Hedwall to the first women's individual champion in school history.

"I have enjoyed my time in Stillwater as both a player and a coach," Young said. "I am going to miss the friends we have made here as well as the girls on the team. They are a great group with a bright future ahead of them. Caleb and I are looking forward to returning to the West Coast where we can be closer to family."
