Goldman came back to Starkville after spending the two seasons as an assistant coach with the men’s and women’s programs at NCAA Division II program Nova Southeastern.
In his final season, Goldman helped the men’s team finish second at the Division II national championship tournament and post Top 3 finishes in 10 of 12 events, including a win at the Armstrong Pirate Invitational.
On the women’s side, the 2014 Lady Sharks ended the spring slate No. 7 by Golfstat after wrapping the fall 26th. The squad qualified for an NCAA Regional and won the Lady Bucs Invitational.
In his first season at the school, he helped the men’s squad to a third-place showing at the NCAA Championship and a No. 1 ranking in Division II by Golfstat. The team claimed four team wins and six individual victories, including the South/Southeast Regional by 16 strokes.
The women’s squad also claimed the top spot in the Golfstat rankings before going on to take runner-up honors in Division II. The Lady Sharks won seven team titles, four individual championships and finished with a 123-8 record.
Goldman helped tutor six first-team All-Americans and 11 All-SSC members on both sides during his two seasons at the school.
He made the trek to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., after spending a season as volunteer assistant coach at Samford. During that campaign he helped the Lady Bulldogs claim nine Top 10 showings in 11 events, including two tournament titles and five Top 5 finishes.
Goldman played under Homan from 2005-09, helping MSU to a pair of NCAA Regional appearances and a spot in the 2008 NCAA Championship.
Goldman was also a standout in the classroom, earning GCAA Academic All-America honors and MSU’s nomination for the SEC Boyd McWhorter Post-Graduate Scholarship.
He tied for the best regional finish ever by a Bulldog, taking eighth in the 2008 East Regional as he helped the squad to a fourth-place showing.
Goldman owns the second-most wins in program history with four, and his 73.84 career scoring average stands seventh in program annals.
After completing his heralded Bulldog career, he played on the Hooters Golf Tour and the Peach State Tour.
