Jerry Waugh, who has spent five decades working as a coach and administrator, has announced plans to retire as Kansas University's women's golf coach at the end of the spring season.

Waugh, in his seventh year as KU golf coach, has spent various portions of his career as an assistant men's basketball coach, men's golf coach, women's golf coach and assistant athletics director.

"I've enjoyed my association with the University of Kansas and especially these past seven years working with women's golf," Waugh said. "I feel very fortunate I've had the opportunity to be associated with this athletic program, its student athletes and the many special people who make it run on a day-day basis.

Waugh played basketball for Phog Allen at KU and served as team captain on the 1950-51 team.

"Jerry Waugh's contributions to the University of Kansas athletics department have been immense and greatly appreciated," KU athletics director Bob Frederick said. "His philosophy and spirit, developed from his association with people like Phog Allen and Dick Harp, have meant much to the department and influenced many of our young coaches. We appreciate all he has done for the university. He will always hold a special place in our hearts."
