Now in his eighth season as head coach of the University of Memphis men's golf team, Grant Robbins continues to build Tiger golf into a nationally-recognized program.

Robbins, a 1994 graduate of Memphis where he was a three-time all-conference selection, returned to his alma mater as head coach in June of 2003. Prior to that, he led the nationally-ranked UNC-Wilmington program to it's first-ever NCAA Tournament bid and was named the Colonial Athletic Association Coach of the Year in just his second year at UNCW.

In Robbins' first season at U of M, he led Memphis to four-top five finishes and saw two players named All-Conference USA. During the 2004-2005 campaign, Robbins led the Tigers to three tournament victories, the most first-place finishes in a single year in school history. Under Robbins, four Memphis golfers earned medalist honors, the team finished in the top two in five of the 10 events and Kevin Fortin-Simard was named All-Conference USA and C-USA Player of the Year.

In 2008, Robbins was named the Conference USA Coach of the Year after leading the Tigers to seven top-five finishes. The Tigers finished in the top 10 in all but two events and earned a bid to the NCAA East Regional. It was the first postseason appearance by Memphis in more than 20 years.
