Now former Iowa men’s golf coach Mark Hankins has been moved to the position of assistant athletics director, Hawkeye Athletics Director Gary Barta announced Tuesday.

Hankins will work with Barta and Associate Athletics Director Mark Jennings. He coached the men’s golf team for seven years and will aid the search for a new men’s golf coach, as well as administrative duties as assigned.

“Mark and I have had discussions in regards to his career path for some time, and I am happy to have Mark’s assistance to our administrative staff,” Barta said in a release.

“Mark has expressed his desire to further his career in athletics administration. This transition is a win-win. He’ll start his next career phase at Iowa, and we’ll tap into his significant expertise to work on some Athletics Department strategic plan initiatives."

Under Hankins, Iowa tied for 10th at the NCAA championships in 2011. The Hawkeyes have appeared in six-consecutive NCAA regionals — the only other two Big Ten teams to do so are Illinois and Northwestern.
