Mark Crabtree has been the head men’s golf coach for the Louisville Cardinals for more than two decades.
As one of the longest-tenured coaches, he has seen names like Adam Hadwin and Derek Fathauer move on to have success at the highest level on the PGA tour. He has coached conference champions and seen Louisville golf grow from non-existent to a consistent top-40 program year in and year out.
However, under the tutelage of Crabtree, the one thing that has been missing is postseason success. In 19 tries, the Cards had only been to three NCAA championships- well below par for the lofty expectations for Louisville athletics across the board.
