Third-year Florida golf assistant Steve Bradley has been hired as the new head men's golf coach at Mercer University, the school announced today.

Bradley, a member of the UF golf team from 1997-99 under longtime head coach Buddy Alexander, helped lead Florida to three trips to the NCAA Championships and an SEC title in 2011 during his three seasons as an assistant.

Bradley is a former captain of the men’s golf team at UF. He transferred to Florida from Florida State in 1997 and spent two seasons with the Gators before graduating in 1999. He had two top-10 finishes during his senior year and helped lead the Gators to the SEC Championship title in 1999. He was named to the All-SEC second-team during his junior year in 1997-98. His best collegiate finish came as runner-up at the 1998 Morris Williams Intercollegiate. Before transferring to UF, Bradley led Florida State with five top-20 finishes during his sophomore year. As an amateur, he won the 1996 Florida State Amateur title and qualified for the 1994 U.S. Amateur.
