Nebraska women’s golf coach Robin Krapfl announced her retirement Monday after 32 years running the program.
She led the Huskers to three NCAA championship appearances and 11 regional berths. She was twice named conference coach of the year. Krapfl also played for Nebraska from 1980-82 and served as an assistant from 1984-87.
Krapfl said in a press release that she no longer had the “energy that this program deserves.” The Huskers haven’t finished better than 10th in the conference since 2012.
“I would like to thank the University of Nebraska for allowing me to hold my dream job for 32 years,” Krapfl said. “To coach young women and be a part of their growth and development has been rewarding beyond measure. Watching them blossom into incredible adults is one of the most wonderful experiences a person can have.”
A national search for Krapfl’s replacement will begin immediately. This will be the seventh coaching search conducted by Athletic Director Bill Moos since he arrived at Nebraska in October 2017. Moos has hired new coaches for football, men’s basketball, women’s gymnastics, rifle, men’s golf and men’s tennis.
“I would like to thank Robin for more than three decades of dedicated service to the University of Nebraska and our student-athletes,” Moos said in a press release. “We wish Robin all the best in the future.”
