Jon Levy is in his first year as a volunteer coach for the University of Colorado men’s golf team after serving two years as the full-time assistant, originally joining the program on September 6, 2011, from the Golf Channel.

Levy, 37, opted to remain on as a volunteer assistant while deciding to pursue a long-time personal ambition to enter golf’s private business world.

He has an impressive resume which includes experience in golf, coaching, marketing and communications.  He has been a head coach at two junior colleges in Arizona, coaching one to a NJCAA national championship, possibly making him the only assistant coach in Division I who has led a program to a national title.

Prior to coming to CU, he worked for a year was the associate editor at the Golf Channel for the organization’s website, where he had duties as both an editor and a writer.  He also was the director of communications for the Gateway Tour, based in Scottsdale, Ariz., for three years (2007-10), where he handled all media relations, writing, communication and public relations functions.  In his last year with the Gateway Tour, he also served as the head coach at Paradise Valley Community College.

Following his playing career, Levy went into teaching in the Phoenix area.  Soon after relocating there, he was named head coach at Scottsdale Community College, traditionally one of the winningest junior college programs in men’s golf.  During his tenure, SCC won four Arizona Community College Athletic Conference (ACCAC) titles, and in his final year there, the Fighting Artichokes won the 2007 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) championship.  He was named the NJCAA National Coach of the Year for the 2006-07 season.

He graduated in 1998 from Iowa State University with a degree in Speech Communication and minor in German.  He was four-year letterman on the golf team for the Cyclones under coaches Dale Anderson and Jamie Bermel, and was captain his senior year.   He was a two-time Academic All-Big 12 member.

After graduation, he competed twice in PGA Tour Qualifying and won two mini-tour events in five years playing on various professional circuits through the United States and Canada.

He was born August 22, 1976 in Princeton, N.J., and graduated from Groves High School (Birmingham, Mich.) where he lettered in golf and skiing.  His hobbies include running, skiing, finish and anything outdoors.  In 1999 as a young professional out of school, he was in a NIKE television advertisement with Tiger Woods (called the Driving Range: he is the golfer next to Woods in the blue and white striped shirt; see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvK1K2tmJU8).
